The Cleveland Browns announced the signing of cornerback Kevin Barnes on Monday.
It's another move to add depth to the secondary, and it's the team's second cornerback signing in this free agency period, reports Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer.
Brown's deal is for one-year, and probably much like former Falcons cornerback Chris Owens' deal, who was signed last week to a one-year deal at about $1 million plus incentives.
Per Cabot: 'Barnes, 26, a third-round pick of the Redskins out of Maryland in 2009, sat out of football last season after being waived by the Lions.
Highly touted coming out of Maryland, Barnes never lived up to the Redskins' starting expectations for him. He's started only three games in his career, and was traded to the Lions last August for a draft pick after first being tried as a safety. After appearing in two games for Detroit, he was waived.'
