CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns signed safety Mike Adams on Friday, giving them insurance just hours before losing Sean Jones in free agency.

Terms of the deal with Adams weren't disclosed.

Adams started five games for Cleveland last season and also was a free agent. But with Jones expected to join the Philadelphia Eagles -- which he did later Friday -- the Browns decided to keep Adams.

Adams joined the NFL in 2004 when he signed with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent. He made 44 tackles and two interceptions last season with the Browns and also played on special teams.

Browns general manager George Kokinis said Adams "possesses the characteristics we believe in" and praised his versatility.

Adams has big shoes to fill in Cleveland. Jones, a second-round draft pick by the Browns in 2004, had 286 tackles and three forced fumbles in 60 career games and ranked third among safeties behind Baltimore's Ed Reed and St. Louis' Oshiomogho Atogwe with 14 interceptions since 2006.
