Former Chicago Bears defensive tackle Marcus Harrison visited the Browns, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
Harrison was originally a third-round pick in the 2008 draft by the Chicago Bears. He was with the Bears the past three seasons, but did not make the team's final roster this year. The Carolina Panthers quickly claimed him off waivers, but the transaction did not go through because he failed his physical with the team. Harrison started nine games during the 2009 season, but has been more of a reserve player during his career. That's no problem, because Harrison would only serve as depth behind starters Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin in Cleveland. If I had to guess, the potential signing of Harrison could result in the waiving of defensive tackle Scott Paxson.
