CLEVELAND – The Browns have signed free agent tight end Jim Dray, who spent the past four years with Arizona.
Dray had career highs with 26 catches for 215 yards and two touchdowns last season for the Cardinals. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound Dray is mostly a blocker, and will provide quality depth behind Pro Bowl tight end Jordan Cameron and Gary Barnidge.
Dray was drafted in the seventh round in 2010 out of Stanford.
The Browns are expected to turn their attention to a slot wide receiver. They signed Cincinnati restricted free agent Andrew Hawkins to an offer sheet earlier this week. The Bengals have five days to match the reported $12.2 million offer.
Also, Cleveland is believed to have interest in New England's Julian Edelman, who caught 105 passes last season and was a teammate for three seasons with Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer.
