CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Browns continued their quarterback makeover, signing free agent Drew Stanton to a two-year contract.
The veteran is expected to back up Tyrod Taylor, recently acquired in a trade with Buffalo. Cleveland is also expected to draft a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.
Stanton signed on Friday. He gives the Browns experienced depth and protection in case Taylor gets injured.
The 6-foot-3, 226-pounder has made 17 career starts while playing for Detroit, Indianapolis and Arizona. Stanton spent the past four seasons with the Cardinals. Stanton is 11-6 as a starter and has passed for 4,059 yards and 20 touchdowns.
Cleveland also signed wide receiver Jeff Janis, who had 17 receptions in four years with Green Bay.
