CLEVELAND -- Versatile offensive lineman Seth McKinney has signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns.
McKinney won the starting right guard's job last year and started eight games before he was sidelined by a shoulder injury. He was replaced by Ryan Tucker, who moved over from tackle after serving a four-game suspension.
The 315-pound McKinney has played on both sides of the ball as well as at center during a six-year NFL career.
"With versatility as a guard and center, this signing should solidify the interior part of our offensive line," Browns general manager Phil Savage said in a statement Friday. "At this point, we feel we have seven starters competing for five positions."
