The Browns have struck a deal with veteran outside linebacker Jamaal Westerman, his agents at Eastern Athletic Services announced today on Twitter.
The Browns have yet to announce the move.
Westerman, 29, has started three of the 58 NFL regular-season games in which he has appeared. He played in 12 games last season for the Buffalo Bills, when new Browns coach Mike Pettine was their defensive coordinator. He also spent three seasons with the New York Jets (2009-11), when Pettine was their defensive coordinator. All three of his career starts came under Pettine's guidance in 2011.
Westerman has compiled 62 tackles, including six sacks, and one forced fumble in five NFL seasons. He most recently played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and has also spent time with the Indianapolis Colts and Arizona Cardinals in addition to the Bills and Jets.
