The Browns have struck a deal with veteran outside linebacker Edgar Jones, his agent, Marc Lillibridge, announced today on Twitter.

The Browns announced the move later this afternoon.

Jones, 29, has appeared in 64 NFL regular-season games, but he has never started. He has contributed to special teams throughout his career.

Before playing for the Dallas Cowboys last season and the Kansas City Chiefs the previous year, Jones spent five seasons with the Baltimore Ravens.

New Browns coach Mike Pettine was Jones' linebackers coach for two seasons in Baltimore. Jones worked out for the Browns in June but did not immediately receive a contract.

The 6-foot-4, 256-pound Jones has compiled 38 tackles, including 1 1/2 sacks, and a forced fumble in seven NFL seasons.

Last season, Jones appeared in seven games with the Cowboys, missing the other nine with a groin injury. But Jones came back from the injury and played in the final three games.
