The Cleveland Browns signed offensive lineman Kendall Lamm on Friday according to the team.
The deal is for two years and worth $7 million according to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson.
Lamm spent the last four seasons with the Houston Texans after signing with them as an undrafted rookie in 2018. He appeared in 55 games for the franchise including 24 starts.
Last season he was Houston’s starting right tackle in 13 games and despite Texans starting quarterback Deshaun Watson getting sacked 62 times, Lamm had a solid pass blocking grade by Pro Football Focus.
Overall, Lamm graded as the 52nd rated tackle in the NFL for the 2018 season. In comparison, left tackle Robinson was the 63rd rated tackle and right tackle Chris Hubbard was the 50th rated tackle.
I would expect Lamm to compete for the right tackle position in camp with Hubbard and potentially with Desmond Harrison as the backup left tackle.
Most teams keep 2-3 reserve lineman so Lamm will definitely be in the mix for a final roster spot if he’s not going to be a starter out of camp.
