Just one day after being released by the Philadelphia Eagles, former Seawolf running back Miguel Maysonet has signed with the Cleveland Browns as per a league source.

Maysonet signed with the Eagles after the NFL draft as a priority free agent, receiving a $10,000 signing bonus. An NFL ruling prohibits college seniors from participating in workouts until they graduate so, since Stony Brook does not graduate until Friday, May 24, he was unable to participate in Organized Team Activities (OTAs). He did, however, participate in the rookie camp earlier this month.

In Cleveland, Maysonet will compete with Montario Hardesty, Chris Ogbonnaya, Brandon Jackson and Dion Lewis for a backup spot behind featured back Trent Richardson.

The 23-year-old running back had one of the greatest seasons in FCS history with 1,964 yards and 21 touchdowns.
