The Browns signed punter Richmond McGee today to replace Reggie Hodges, the team announced.
Hodges suffered a season-ending torn left Achilles tendon on Tuesday and was placed on injured reserve today. The Browns held a tryout today at their facility in Berea, and McGee, who was waived by the Chicago Bears on Monday, emerged as Hodges' successor.
The Browns also compensated for Eric Wright's departure by signing cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who was an unrestricted free agent. Patterson spent the past two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, and started nine games last season. Wright recently signed with the Detroit Lions.
The Browns also signed undrafted free-agent linebackers Archie Donald and Eric Gordon and waived linebackers Derrick Addai and Alex Wujciak.
