Browns sign two players

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have re-signed offensive lineman Oniel Cousins and tight end Alex Smith.

Cousins made one start at right tackle last season after the Browns were awarded him off waivers from Baltimore. He has made five career starts and played in 30 games. Cousins gives the Browns offensive line depth after the team released right tackle Tony Pashos, who recently underwent foot surgery and is expected to need 10 months to recover.

Smith made four starts last season. He finished with 14 catches for 131 yards and a touchdown.

The Browns also said defensive lineman Brian Schaefering signed his tender as an exclusive rights player.
