By Nate Ulrich Published: March 12, 2014

The Browns have agreed to contract terms with former New York Jets cornerback Isaiah Trufant.

Agent Doug Hendrickson announced the news on Twitter early this morning. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed.

Trufant, 31, is a backup corner and special-teams player with ties to new Browns coach Mike Pettine. From 2009-12, Pettine served as the Jets’ defensive coordinator, and Trufant was with the team for three of those years.

Last season, Trufant played all 16 games for the first time in his career and compiled 20 tackles. He has played 193 defensive snaps in the past two seasons.

The 5-foot-8, 170-pound Trufant has compiled 46 tackles and two passes defensed since he caught on in the NFL with the Jets in 2010. He played in the Arena Football League and the United Football League before entering the NFL.

Trufant’s older brother, Marcus, played for the Seattle Seahawks and his younger brother, Desmond, was a first-round pick of the Atlanta Falcons last year.
