Browns claim former Packer Justin Vogel, cut QB Joel Stave

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND (WKOW) -

Just days after the Green Bay Packers cut punter Justin Vogel, the Cleveland Browns claimed Vogel off waivers on Monday and cut quarterback and former Wisconsin Badger Joel Stave. 

Vogel was the Packers’ punter last season and grossed an average of 44.4 yards per punt, plus had 19 punts inside the 20-yard line and just two touchbacks. 

The Packers drafted punter JK Scott out of Alabama in the 5th round of the 2018 NFL draft. 

To make room on the 90-player roster for Vogel, the Browns cut quarterback Joel Stave. He was fourth on their depth chart behind Tyrod Taylor, Baker Mayfield and Drew Stanton.

Stave played his college football at Wisconsin and has traveled around the NFL since entering the league undrafted in 2016, with stops in Minnesota, Seattle, Kansas City, Washington, the New York Jets and Cleveland. He has yet to play in a regular-season game.
