The Cleveland Browns landed two veterans with their first free-agent signings of the Mike Holmgren era. The team announced that Cleveland agreed to multi-year deals with offensive tackle Tony Pashos and linebacker Scott Fujita Sunday.

Pashos' deal is for three years and $10.3 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Terms of Fujita's contract were not available.

Pashos, who played for the San Francisco 49ers last season, is expected to start at right tackle. Fujita played outside linebacker for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints and likely will move inside in Cleveland's 3-4 defense.

"We are extremely happy that we were able to get Scott and Tony signed so quickly," Browns general manager Tom Heckert said in a statement. "They are two players we had targeted from the start of free agency. Both are smart, tough and physical -- the type of players that the Browns are looking for."

Cleveland has been active since the start of free agency. In addition to signing Pashos and Fujita, the Browns dealt defensive lineman Corey Williams to the Detroit Lions and reached a contract agreement with Pro Bowl kick returner Josh Cribbs.
