Browns Ink Tight End Ben Watson To Three-Year Deal

The Browns have continued to add to their stable of former Patriots/Jets, as they signed tight end Ben Watson to a three-year, $12 million deal, according to the Cleveland Plains-Dealer.

Watson not only provides the Browns with a player head coach Eric Mangini is presumably comfortable with, but also an athletically gifted tight end -- something the team has been lacking since trading away Kellen Winslow last offseason. While Watson's physical talent hasn't always translated into production in the passing game, it's certainly possible that in a system that more prominently features the tight end that he could have a late-career breakout of sorts.
