Browns waive CB Jones, sign OL Osika

CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns waived cornerback C.J. Jones and signed offensive lineman Craig Osika from the practice squad Friday

Osika, waived by San Francisco in August, was activated because of injuries to Cleveland's offensive line.

Jones was a undrafted rookie from Iowa, who made the Browns as a wide receiver and kick returner after an impressive training camp.

The Browns converted Jones into a cornerback after some injuries to their secondary. He was never activated for a game.

If Jones clears waivers, he could be signed to the Browns' practice squad.
