Browns Sign Marlon Moore

The Browns announced they have signed free agent receiver Marlon Moore (Twitter link via Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal). Terms of the deal aren’t yet known, but I’d guess it’s a one-year deal with little to no guaranteed money. Moore will have to wait until Week 2 to debut for Cleveland, as he is suspended for the first game of 2014.

Moore, 26, signed with the Dolphins in 2010 as an undrafted free agent out of Fresno State. He joined the 49ers after reaching unrestricted free agency in 2013, but was released following Week 7. He subsequently returned to Miami for the final six games of last season. Moore has always played a small role on offense — his seven receptions last year were a career high. However, as Brian McIntyre notes (on Twitter), Moore is regarded as a special teams ace, and will likely fill that role in Cleveland.

With the Browns, Moore joins a receiver depth chart that looks barren behind Josh Gordon, who is expected to be suspended for a large part (if not all) of 2014. Andrew Hawkins was an intriguing addition through restricted free agency, but Nate Burleson, Miles Austin, and Anthony Armstrong are uninspiring options.
