QB-needy Browns sign Tyler Thigpen for finale

Print

Rex Grossman decided there's no place like home for the holidays. Tyler Thigpen just wants to play football.

Thigpen has signed with the Browns, the team announced on Tuesday. Cleveland needed to add another quarterback with Brian Hoyer dealing with a shoulder injury and Johnny Manziel already ruled out with a hamstring strain.

The only other quarterback on the roster is undrafted rookie Connor Shaw. The team's dogged pursuit of a veteran signal-caller indicates Hoyer might be sidelined for Cleveland's Week 17 finale against the Ravens.

Thigpen was with the team during the preseason and has familiarity with the Browns' offense. This marks Thigpen's fourth official stop in the NFL -- he's also played with the Chiefs, Bills and Dolphins.
