1:05pm: The Browns have agreed to terms with free agent quarterback Tyler Thigpen, reports Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com (via Twitter). Thigpen had a “very strong” performance at the Browns’ minicamp this week, and La Canfora had suggested earlier this afternoon (via Twitter) that the 30-year-old was expected to sign with the team.
Thigpen, a seventh-round pick in the 2007 draft, saw his most significant action during the 2008 season, when he started 11 games for the Chiefs and put up respectable numbers, including 2,608 passing yards, 18 touchdowns, and just 12 interceptions. Since then, he has served as a backup in Kansas City, Miami, and Buffalo.
