Browns agree to terms with OT Chris Hubbard

Browns agree to terms with OT Chris Hubbard

The Cleveland Browns continued their bolstering of the offensive tackle position on Tuesday as they have reportedly come to terms with free agent Chris Hubbard. He played primarily right tackle for the Steelers, which is where he will likely play for the Browns. He was signed by Pittsburgh as an undrafted free agent following the 2013 NFL Draft. Hubbard has only played at right tackle and guard in the NFL.

In the four seasons that Hubbard spent on Pittsburgh's active roster, he received a total of $3.327 million in base salary, including $1.797 for the 2017 season. In 2016, he played 325 offensive snaps in 15 games, including four starts. If the Browns believe Shon Coleman can move from right to left - something Thomas has said he believes Coleman can do - then Hubbard could play the right side and Coleman the left.

Where Hubbard will play with Cleveland is yet to be determined. It's tough to judge what his signing means about Joe Thomas' future, though. Hubbard also played under Todd Haley in Pittsburgh, who may have been the deciding factor in offering Hubbard a contract. He seems like a positive addition, without huge risk.

Gordon has little leverage thanks to his numerous suspensions or his relatively quiet play in five games last season. Smith spent the 2017 season in Cincy after three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Browns can use him inside or out, but with the trade of Danny Shelton, the Browns needed depth on the defensive front. Gilbert signed a five-year, $31 million deal in 2015, and Villanueva is working on a four-year, $24 million contract signed last year.
