CLEVELAND -- Linebacker Kris Griffin, a key player on special teams for Cleveland last season, signed a one-year contract with the Browns on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-3, 245-pound Griffin made 14 tackles on special teams last season despite missing the club's final four games with a knee injury. He was a restricted free agent.

Griffin joined the Browns last May after being waived by Kansas City. He began his pro career as an undrafted free agent. He played two seasons with the Chiefs, appearing in 24 games.
