On Friday former WKU Tight End Mik’Quan Deane was waived by the Buffalo Bills and picked up by the Cleveland Browns according to Jake Trotter (ESPN).

Since going undrafted in 2019 he joined the Seattle Seahawks for rookie mini-camp, then was picked up by the Buffalo Bills and waived until being picked up by the Browns on Friday.

Deane will join the already crowded Browns tight end room. Cleveland’s main offensive threats remain Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham, Kareem Hunt, and Nick Chubb.
