CLEVELAND -- Former Ohio State University and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Tom Tupa has signed with the Cleveland Browns, to become the team's third quarterback.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound Tupa played four seasons with the Phoenix Cardinals after being selected in the third round of the 1988 draft.
He signed with the Colts as a Plan B free agent on March 31, 1992, and played last season for Indianapolis. He was released by the Colts on the final roster out in August.
The Browns also announced Friday the signing of free agent and former Pro Bowl safety Erik McMillian. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder is in his sixth NFl season. He spent the first five years with the New York Jets, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl following both the 1988 and 1989 seasons.
McMillan totaled 22 career interceptions with New York for 608 yards, the fourth best in Jets' history, and five TDs. He signed with the Philadelphia Eagles in April as an unrestricted free agent, played in six games with no starts and was deactivated for one game with the Eagles, before being waived in November.
While at Philadelphia, McMillan totaled four tackles from the secondary, plus a fumble recovery and five special teams' tackles.
