Center Brian Allen agrees to deal to join Browns

The Browns added more depth and a Super Bowl champion to the interior of the offensive line Tuesday, agreeing to a deal with veteran center Brian Allen.

His agency, AMDG Sports, announced the deal on X, and a league source confirmed it to The Chronicle-Telegram.

Browns pick up Greg Newsome II’s fifth-year option

Allen started 36 games from 2019-21 with the Rams, including all four postseason games in their Super Bowl run after the 2021 season. He was limited to seven games in 2022 by knee and thumb injuries then served as a backup last season, appearing in five games off the bench.

He was released by the Rams in February.

Allen, 28, was originally a fourth-round pick of the Rams in 2018 out of Michigan State. He’ll compete with Luke Wypler, a sixth-round pick last year, to back up starting center Ethan Pocic.

The Browns had been thin on the interior but drafted Michigan guard Zak Zinter in the third round (No. 85 overall) on Friday. He and returning veteran Michael Dunn are expected to back up left guard Joel Bitonio and right guard Wyatt Teller.

“I’ve known BA since he was a high schooler,” tweeted LeCharles Bentley, former Browns center and founder of AMDG Sports. “When he’s healthy, one of the baddest dudes in the NFL. My personal favorite C to watch play. Really hoping he reclaims old form and help the Land keep dominating upfront. A real dawg”
