Agent: Isaiah Trufant agrees to deal with Browns


The Cleveland Browns apparently have no interest in slowing down on the free agent market.

After agreeing to four-year contracts with linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Donte Whitner on Tuesday, the Browns have added some help to their secondary.

According to his agent, Doug Hendrickson, former New York Jets cornerback Isaiah Trufant has agreed to terms on a deal with the Browns.

Trufant built himself into a valued special teams player and reserve defensive back over the last four seasons with the Jets.

It’s been a long road for Trufant, who began his career with the Spokane Shock in the lower tier of the Arena Football League in 2006. After playing for three teams in five seasons in the AFL, Trufant played two years with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League before finally getting his chance to latch on with the Jets in 2010.

  1. In training camp all 3 Trufant DB brothers were in the league at the same time that’s awesome

  2. Ray Farmer, less than 24 hours ago, was quoted as saying that he would take “…a prudent approach” to free agency.

    To some of us, his signings look like a “blind-dog-in-a-meat-locker” spree.

    However, given the widespread high opinion of his abilities and the quality of his signings, he is likely to be viewed as Cleveland’s version of Ozzie Newsome, rather than, say, Jerry Jones.

  3. Trufant give us special teams spread off the corner lost when Cribbs left and also Nicole situations. As for the guy who said our signings are “silly” you couldn’t be more wrong. With Ward and Jackson, this team still lived in the culture of losing (6 forth quarter leads last season). Now we bring in guys who are familiar with the system and a culture of winning. Krueger will be better next to Dansby and Barky will be used proper. Get excited. This front office knows what they are doing.

  4. Trufant probably will not start, but brings depth, you need pieces and parts, a team can’t have superstars at every position..
