Cleveland Browns add secondary, special teams depth with Mike Ford


July 29: Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Cameron Batson (80) runs against defensive back Mike Ford.

Former Atlanta Falcons cornerback Mike Ford has agreed to a deal with the Browns, a league source confirmed to the Beacon Journal. Ford, 27, himself hinted at the news, tweeting “Dawg Pound (dog emoji)” on Monday morning.
