Report: Cleveland Browns sign DT Andrew Billings

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackles Andrew Billings.

One day after agreeing to terms with linebacker B.J. Goodson and safety Karl Joseph, the Cleveland Browns continued to bulk up on the defensive side of the ball.

According to ESPN's Field Yates, the Browns have signed former Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Andrew Billings. Per reports, the deal is a one-year contract worth $3.5 million

Selected out of Baylor in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Billings spent the first four seasons of his NFL career in Cincinnati. After missing the entirety of his rookie season due to a torn meniscus, the 2015 Co-Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year amassed 80 tackles, 14 of which came for a loss in 3.5 sacks in three seasons, including 35 tackles, 4 of which came for a loss and 1 sack in 16 games (14 starts) in 2019.

In coming to Cleveland, the 6-foot-1, 328-pound Billings will provide depth and push for playing time in the middle of a Browns defensive line that also includes Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi. Earlier this week, Cleveland focused its free agency efforts on the offensive side of the ball, agreeing to terms with Pro Bowl tight end Austin Hooper, offensive tackle Jack Conklin and veteran quarterback Case Keenum.
