Johnny Stanton: Inks deal with Cleveland

Stanton signed a reserve/future contract with the Browns on Tuesday.

Analysis: Stanton spent the part of the 2019 season on the Vikings' practice squad, but he never elevated to the active roster because C.J. Ham stayed healthy. The Browns don't currently have another fullback on their roster, but there's no guarantee they'll retain Stanton for the 2020 campaign.

Johnny Stanton: Let go from practice squad

The Vikings cut Stanton from their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Stanton still hasn't suited up in a regular-season NFL game after injuring his knee during the 2018 preseason and landing on injured reserve. The 25-year-old fullback has been unable to get promoted after a couple weeks on the Vikings' practice squad, which is partially attributed to how well C.J. Ham has played.

Johnny Stanton: Joins practice squad in Minnesota

Stanton was signed to the Vikings' practice squad Tuesday, the team's official site reports.

Analysis: A serious knee injury forced Stanton to spend the entirety of his 2018 campaign on IR, having been carted off the field during the Vikings' preseason tilt against the Jaguars last year. The former UNLV quarterback has since returned to full health and will rejoin the Vikings' organization as a member of the practice squad.

Johnny Stanton: Waived off IR

Stanton (lower leg) was waived from the Vikings' injured reserve list Friday, according to the league's official transaction log.

Analysis: Stanton spent the entire 2018 season on IR due to an unspecified leg injury that required him to be carted him off the field during Minnesota's preseason game against Jacksonville. It's not clear if the fullback is recovered at this stage, but he's immediately free to sign a contract with any another organization outside of Minneapolis upon clearing waivers.
