The Cleveland Browns are expected to sign center J.C. Tretter, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported Thursday.

Tretter, 26, spent the past two seasons with the Green Bay Packers, though a knee injury sidelined him for the second half of the 2016 season. He suffered a sprained MCL and underwent surgery in January.

Tretter is expected to fill the Browns' need at starting center, though he may also play guard.
