Kearney, 6 feet 2 and 185 pounds, was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in April. He was released in May and signed before training camp with the Cleveland Browns, who released him Aug. 26.
He is a former wide receiver who switched to the defensive backfield at Lane College in Tennessee, where he finished his college career with 45 tackles and two interceptions.
Here’s a short video profile of Kearney, who ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.4-range on his pro day and also posted a 32-inch vertical jump.
