The Browns added more depth to the offensive line.
With another player who has a history with general manager John Dorsey.
Free agent offensive lineman Bryan Witzmann (6-foot-7, 320 pounds) signed Friday. He adds further insurance behind Austin Corbett, who’s expected to start at right guard after the trade of Kevin Zeitler last week.
Witzmann, 28, was undrafted out of South Dakota State in 2014 and has started 20 of 37 career games with the Chiefs and Bears at both guard spots. He started 13 games for the Chiefs in 2017 and seven for the Bears last season.
Dorsey claimed him off waivers in 2016 when he was GM of the Chiefs.
“Excited to be a part the Cleveland Browns Organization.” he tweeted. “Can’t wait to get things going in the land!”

Witzmann followed the signings of tackle Kendall Lamm and interior lineman Eric Kush last week. They also have starting experience but are expected to fill backup roles.
Dorsey previously acquired Kush and tight end Demetrius Harris, who signed with the Browns last week, during his time with the Chiefs.
