CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns added another player to their receiving corps, claiming Marvin Hall on waivers from the Detroit Lions.

Hall, a 5-10, 192-pound wide receiver, is in his fourth NFL season.

In 2016, Hall entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Raiders and has made his way around the league, playing for the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons and Lions.

This season with Detroit, Hall has played in 11 games and caught 17 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns.

Over his career, Hall has recorded 760 receiving yards on 36 receptions and five scores, averaging 21.1 yards per catch.

Hall was waived by the Lions on Friday in a surprise move by the team. He had a breakout game in Week 8, posting his first 100-yard game. The decision to waive him was reportedly an attempt to give some of the younger players on the team a look, although Hall is only 27.

The Browns receiver room has taken hits throughout the season, from losing star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. for the season with a torn ACL, to others missing games with injury, including KhaDarel Hodge and Taywan Taylor, who were both out Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.

On Sunday, the Browns only had three receivers on the field—Jarvis Landry, Donovan Peoples-Jones and Rashard Higgins— all three of whom found the end zone. Cleveland elevated wide receiver Ja’Marcus Bradley from the practice squad, but he did not play.

The Browns will receive a roster exemption for Hall that will expire once he goes through COVID-19 testing protocols and is able to join the team. In the meantime, he will not count against the active roster.
