The Cleveland Browns' defense could use a serious boost on the interior. Cleveland failed to stop the run once again in Week 5, and it cost them as the Los Angeles Chargers moved the ball at will on the ground during their 30-28 win on Sunday.

Following this disappointing effort, Cleveland has bolstered its D-line depth by adding a veteran to its practice squad.

Nose tackle Tyeler Davison is signing with the Browns, according to NFL insider Tom Pelissero. The addition comes on the heels of the trade for Deion Jones, who was actully a teammate of Davison's in Atlanta.

Davison was originally a fith-round pick by the New Orleans Saints during the 2015 draft. He played in 61 games (including 48 starts) for New Orleans from 2015-2018, recording 9 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and 3 forced fumbles. He then joined the Falcons from 2019-2021, where he logged another 9 TFL and 1.5 sacks in 44 games and 38 starts.

Davison's experience as a starter throughout his career makes him a very valuable depth piece for Cleveland moving forward. He'll join the team with fresh legs, which is a bonus heading into Week 6 when players are already banged up. Hopefully the reunion of Davison and Jones, once the latter returns from IR, will prove to be a fruitful one.
