The Browns signed former Arizona Cardinals tight end Jim Dray as an unrestricted free agent today, the team announced.
Dray, 27, spent the past four seasons with the Cardinals. Last season, he started 15 games and tallied career highs with 26 catches, 215 receiving yards and two touchdowns.
ProFootballFocus.com ranked Dray 62nd out of 64 tight ends last season. He did not drop a pass, according to the website, but it gave him negative grades as a receiver and in run blocking and pass protection.
In 2010, the Cardinals drafted the 6-foot-5, 255-pound Dray in the seventh round out of Stanford University. He has started 18 of the 55 games in which he has appeared, compiling 33 catches for 302 yards and two touchdowns.
Dray will join a tight ends corps led by Pro Bowler Jordan Cameron. The Browns also have Gary Barnidge, who served as Cameron’s primary backup last season, MarQueis Gray, Keavon Milton and Andre Smith on the roster.
