The Browns are bolstering their offensive line.

Cleveland has agreed to terms with former Pittsburgh offensive lineman Chris Hubbard. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Hubbard will get a five-year deal worth $37.5 million, with nearly $18 million guaranteed.

That sounds like an awful lot of money for a guy with just 14 career starts. We’ll need to see how the deal is structured to fully evaluate it, but the Browns may be getting desperate to spend all that cap space they have available.

Hubbard was the No. 81 player in our Free Agent Top 100.

  1. Where’s he going to play? Bitonio and Zeitler are obviously locked in at guard, his natural position. Browns could use an upgrade at RT…but he was pretty awful filling in at RT last year, ranking #40 according to PFF.

    Are they actually paying him that kind of money to play RT???

  2. steelers are dumb as a bag of dumb rocks for letting him walk. and to the browns, no less. steelers are done like my dinner.

  3. Don`t lose sight of the fact that Todd Haley was the Steelers OC. He might have some insight into the situation.

  4. You cant pay everyone big money . Pouncey DeCastro Gilbert and AV are all signed long term . With Finney as the swing man . Good for Hubbard to get a big deal .

  5. He’s a career back up on one of the best lines in football decent player but not good enough to take anyone’s job. You don’t pay a back up 37 million dollars that’s why the Browns are the Browns. 13-3 and the steelers are done because they lost a backup in an area of strength. SMH

    Everyone and their grandmother knew Hubbard played his way out of what the Steelers would pay him to be a backup for the next 3-4 years. It was evident before the regular season even ended. Probably want to have some semblance of a clue before commenting.

  7. Hubbard getting rewarded for putting in the work.
    Good for Chris! Good, versatile guy who filled in
    very well last year. Glad he got paid, he earned.

    Good luck to him , except when they play the Steelers.

  8. PFF is that person that uses a lot of big words to convince people they are smarter than they really are. Steelers didn’t miss a beat whenever he replaced Gilbert.
