CLEVELAND, March 7 (UPI) -- The Cleveland Browns made their second acquisition in as many days Thursday, agreeing to a four-year contract with tackle Ryan Tucker.
Terms of the deal were not released.
"Ryan is smart, athletic, versatile and agreesive," Browns executive vice president Dwight Clark said. "He can play guard and tackle, but we project him at the right tackle position at this time.
"We are committed to running the ball more effectively, and acquiring Ryan will go a long way in helping us achieve that goal. His addition certainly strengthens our offensive line."
The 6-5, 305-pound Tucker has spent all five his NFL seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He started 31 of the last 32 games at right tackle and was a member of the first offense in NFL history to post three straight 500-point seasons.
He started every game last season except an Oct. 21 contest against the New York Jets when he saw limited action due to a broken hand.
"I am really excited to be a part of the Cleveland Browns organization," Tucker said. "The organization, ownership and facilities are all first-class. I am looking forward to playing for a high-energy guy like Butch Davis, who has been successful every place he has been. I like where the Cleveland Browns are heading."
Tucker was selected in the fourth round in 1997 after playing at Texas Christian.
The Browns signed safety Robert Griffith to a four-year contract on Wednesday.
