NFL News: Chris Ogbonnaya signs two-year deal with Browns

The Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with RB Chris Ogbonnaya according to the Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot

Ogbonnaya has been with the team since October of 2011. Last season he appeared in 15 games with the Browns, but only had 8 rushing attempts. Over his two seasons with Cleveland he has rushed for 364 yards (4.5 yards per carry) and a touchdown. He has caught 47 passes out of the backfield in that same time for 352 yards.

He joins Trent Richardson, Monterio Hardesty and Eddie Williams as the only running backs on the roster.

Joe Banner announced at the Paul Kruger press conference the tendering of two players. One is longsnapper Christian Yount, and the other is believed to be wide receiver Jordan Norwood. By offering a one year tender, the pair may not sign with any other team.

    Eddie Williams?

    Ogbonnaya is an undervalued back and compliments TRich well, especially on 3rd down. Was Smelley forgotten or counted as a FB/TE? Williams is more of a FB though and a practice squad guy.
