Browns reach 1-year deal with DT Andrew Billings

The Browns added starting-quality depth to the defensive line Thursday, agreeing to a one-year deal with former Bengals tackle Andrew Billings.

His agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced the move on Twitter.

Billings, who turned 25 earlier this month, was a fourth-round pick of the Bengals in 2016 out of Baylor University. He missed his rookie season with a knee injury but has started 37 of 47 games, including 30 over the last two seasons.

In the two years as a starter, he totaled 67 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 12 tackles for loss and 11 quarterbacks hits.


He’s 6-foot-1, 328 pounds and joins Larry Ogunjobi and Sheldon Richardson on the interior of the line.

Billings is the third defender in the last 24 hours to reach a one-year deal with the Browns. Safety Karl Joseph and linebacker B.J. Goodson agreed Wednesday night.
