Browns sign Bobby Engram
By James Walker
After months of speculation, the Cleveland Browns finally added a veteran wide receiver.
Cleveland signed 14-year vet Bobby Engram on Thursday, the team announced. Engram was originally a second-round pick of the Chicago Bears in 1996 and also played with the Seattle Seahawks (2001-08) and Kansas City Chiefs (2009).
Engram spent time in Seattle with current Browns president Mike Holmgren, which likely had something to do with the signing.
Cleveland's inexperience at receiver is one of the team's biggest weaknesses entering training camp. The team seemed confident this spring in second-year receivers Mohamed Massaquoi and Brian Robiskie but still appeared interested in adding a veteran.
Engram has 650 career receptions.
