The Cleveland Browns signed cornerback Hank Poteat on Monday.

Poteat, an unrestricted free agent, had two interceptions, a
sack, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery last season for the
New York Jets.

A favorite of new Browns coach Eric Mangini, Poteat spent the
last three seasons with the Jets. All four of his career
interceptions have come in the last two seasons.

The 31-year-old Poteat was a third-round draft choice of the
Pittsburgh Steelers in 2000 and played three seasons there. He has
also played with Tampa Bay and New England
