CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have signed defensive tackle Maurice Hurst to a one-year deal, according to Orange and Brown Report and 247 Sports reporter Brad Stainbrook.
Hurst, a five-year veteran, missed all of 2022 with a torn biceps injury that he suffered in training camp while with the San Francisco 49ers. Hurst also missed significant time in the 2021 season due to a calf injury limiting him to only two games during the regular season.
In his first two seasons with the Oakland Raiders, the former fifth round pick racked up 7.5 sacks, 59 tackles (37 solo), 7 tackles for loss and 11 QB hits.
Hurst will look to get his career back on track on the Browns' new look defensive line that has seen significant changes since NFL free agency began on Monday with the additions of DT Dalvin Tomlinson and edge rusher Ogbonnia Okoronkwo.
Monetary details on Hurst's contract have yet to be revealed.
