The Browns signed inside linebacker Caleb McSurdy on Thursday, the team announced.
The Dallas Cowboys picked McSurdy in the seventh round (No. 222 overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. As a rookie, he suffered a torn Achilles' tendon during training camp and missed the entire season. He spent part of the 2013 season on the St. Louis Rams' practice squad.
The 6-foot-1, 241-pound McSurdy appeared in 56 games at the University of Montana and registered more than 100 tackles during his junior and season seasons.
The Browns have the maximum of 90 players on their roster.
