CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Browns have signed free agent offensive lineman Rashad Butler to a one-year contract.
Butler spent the past six seasons with the Houston Texans. He was on injured reserve all of 2012 with a triceps injury, and he played in just two games in 2011 because of an elbow injury.
The 6-foot-4, 310-pounder has made 41 career starts in the NFL. In 2010, he played in all 16 games and made four starts at left tackle for the Texans.
A four-year letterman at Miami, Butler was drafted in the third round (No. 89 overall) by Carolina in 2006. The 30-year-old was waived by the Panthers in 2007 before he was claimed by Houston.
Butler should bring some depth to Cleveland's line.
