As perhaps a sign of things to come this Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, the Cleveland Browns have signed running back Chris Ogbonnaya, according to J.R. Rickert, Ogbonnaya's agent. He was released last week by the Houston Texans to make room for a couple of new players.
There's no word yet on who the Browns waived to make room for Ogbonnaya, who had 3 carries for 6 yards this year. In 2009, he had 11 carries for 50 yards and 1 catch for 19 yards as a member of the St. Louis Rams (hello, Pat Shurmur affiliation). He was a seventh-round draft choice by the Rams that year.
