The Browns officially announced the signings of Sheldon Richardson, Adarius Taylor and Demetrius Harris on Thursday but also announced a signing that wasn’t previously reported.
The team signed veteran offensive lineman Eric Kush who has previously been with the Chiefs, Buccaneers, Texans, Rams and his most recent stop, the Chicago Bears.
Kush was drafted in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft out of California University of Pennsylvania by the Chiefs who was being run by John Dorsey at the time when he was the general manager.
He has played in 33 career games and started 12 of those games including seven last season with the Bears at the left guard position. Kush also has experience playing at the center position.
Pro Football Focus graded him as the 52nd ranked guard in the NFL last season but he does have one solid stat.
Kush will likely come in and push Austin Corbett at the right guard position where Corbett is expected to contribute after trading Kevin Zeitler to the New York Giants in the Odell Beckham/Olivier Vernon trade.
He’ll also provide depth to the interior of the offensive line in case of any potential injuries. With his expierence, it’s a much needed addition to the Browns roster.
