The Cleveland Browns have signed veteran safety Jim Leonhard.

Leonhard has played for browns coach Mike Pettine with three teams previously: the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens.

This marks their sixth season working together.

Leonhard wrote on Twitter: "It's official, I just signed my 8th NFL contract to become a part of the Cleveland Browns.#dawgpound."

Leonhard could help the Browns like an extra coach on the field.

Leonhard has recorded 254 tackles, 3.5 sacks, four interceptions and 21 passes defended playing for Pettine with the Ravens and Jets.

Leonhard had four interceptions last season for the Bills, recording 41 tackles and five passes defenses.

The Browns also signed former Furman offensive lineman Ryan Lee, who's also played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints and St. Louis Rams.
