Whoever ends up throwing passes for the Browns this year — and who are we kidding, they will be legion — will have a new target.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, former Cardinals tight end Rob Housler has agreed to a one-year deal with the Browns.

The Browns desperately needed someone to catch passes from the position after losing Jordan Cameron in free agency to Miami.

Housler showed promise for the Cards, catching 45 passes in 2012 and 39 in 2013. But he wasn’t a factor last year, with just nine receptions.

He should get more targets with the Browns, once they figure out who’s doing the targeting.
