It's no secret the Cleveland Browns have struggled to defend the run this season. They've already made some moves this year to improve in that area, but it doesn't appear they're done addressing this need yet.

The Browns have added another defensive tackle to the mix heading into Week 11.

Cleveland is signing Ben Stille to its active roster from the Miami Dolphins' practice squad. This news comes on the heels of the Browns waiving DT Roderick Perry, which created an open spot on the defensive line while Chase Winovich eyes a return.

Stille landed in Miami after being undrafted this past April. He was very productive over five seasons at Nebraska, racking up 14.5 sacks and 29.5 tackles for loss for the Cornhuskers. The 25-year-old made his NFL debut in Week 7 against the Pittsburgh Steelers, recording 2 tackles.

Stille presents Cleveland an intriguing young depth option that can also play off the edge. The Browns will need all the help they can get in Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills. The snowy weather forecast would make play in the trenches even more important if this turns into a ground-heavy affair.
