CLEVELAND (AP) The Browns have signed free agent offensive lineman Alvin Bailey and linebacker Justin Tuggle.

After doing nothing in free agency - other than waiving troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel and losing four starters - the Browns finally added some depth on Friday.

The versatile 6-foot-3 Bailey has appeared in 42 regular-season games and made eight starts for Seattle. He also has postseason experience, making two starts.

Bailey has played both tackle positions and left guard and will provide depth up front for the Browns, who earlier this week lost three-time Pro Bowl center Alex Mack and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz in free agency.

Tuggle made 11 starts for Houston. The 6-foot-3, 245-pounder can also play special teams. His father, Jessie, played 14 seasons for Atlanta and made five Pro Bowls.

In addition to Mack and Schwartz, the Browns elected not to re-sign safety Tashaun Gipson or wide receiver Travis Benjamin.
