Pittsburgh free agent linebacker Clark Haggans is scheduled to visit Cleveland Tuesday and Wednesday, his agent Jeff Sperbeck confirmed Monday.
Haggans, 31, an eight-year veteran, could give the Browns a pass-rush threat opposite Kamerion Wimbley. Haggans has totalled 32.5 sacks the past six seasons, with 58 tackles and four sacks in 2007. He became a regular for the Steelers in 2004, with 57 total starts in that span. He's also recorded 315 career tackles (210 solos) and 18 passes defensed.
Wimbley, Cleveland's first-round pick in 2006, set the team's rookie record with 11 sacks, but followed that up with just five in 2007. Outside linebacker Antwan Peek, signed as a free agent from Houston to take some of the pressure off Wimbley, was hampered by injuries most of last season.
A fifth-round pick of Pittsburgh in 2000, Haggans was a walk-on at Colorado State who left as its all-time sacks leader (33).
