CLEVELAND (AP) – The Browns have signed offensive lineman Joe Madsen and placed rookie draft picks Ifo Ekpre-Olomu and Randall Telfer on the active/non-football injury list.

Madsen signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2013 as an undrafted free agent. The 6-foot-3, 310-pounder spent three weeks last season on Green Bay’s practice squad and the former West Virginia standout also played for the Los Angeles KISS in the Arena League.

Ekpre-Olomu was drafted in the seventh round by Cleveland. The Oregon star was projected to be a first-round pick before suffering a serious knee injury in December.

The Browns took Telfer in the sixth round from Southern Cal. He dealt with an assortment of injuries as a senior.

Also, the team placed defensive lineman Tory Slater on the active/physically-unable-to-perform list.

Cleveland’s rookies reported to training camp Wednesday.
