Tight end Kellen Davis isn’t the only new member of the Browns.
Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns have also signed cornerback Chris Owens, who is expected to sign his contract on Friday. Owens comes over from the Falcons, where he spent the last four years after being drafted in the third round of the 2009 draft.
Owens mostly played in the slot as a nickel corner for the Falcons, but wound up losing time to Robert McClain during a rocky 2012 season. Owens had 22 tackles and a forced fumble during the regular season and had three interceptions over his career with Atlanta.
The Browns have also shown interest in Owens’ Atlanta teammate Brent Grimes, who has yet to sign with any team despite drawing plenty of interest after a year wiped out by an Achilles tear.
