Cleveland Browns to sign free agent CB TJ Carrie

The Browns have also signed former Green Bay Packers cornerback Damarious Randall, though he's likely to shift to safety.

The 27-year-old defensive back spent the first four seasons of his career with the Oakland Raiders after they selected him in the seventh round of the 2014 National Football League draft out of Ohio University. He was Oakland's primary punt returner for his two years. In Oakland, he returned 15 of the former for 362 yards and 52 of the latter, for 387 yards.

The Browns are signing cornerback TJ Carrie, according to a report from cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot.

With Carrie gone, the Raiders may be expecting Conley to step up into a starting role across from Amerson during his second season, while draft and free-agency options are on the table as well. Where Carrie is most valuable is defending the slot, which spells trouble for Jamar Taylor, who has a $5.275 million cap hit this year but costs only $1.5 million to release. The deal comes with $10 million in guaranteed money.

As a member of the Browns, Carrie brings plenty of starting experience, but if they ask him to play as a nickel or dime, he has shown he is capable of excelling in those areas as well.
