Chris Pressley signing with Cleveland Browns

Jonathan Ferrey

The Browns are signing the former Bengals starting fullback, as Chris Pressley becomes the latest former Bengals to join Cleveland.

The Cincinnati Bengals are still in the market for a true, bruising fullback in either free agency or the NFL Draft. The man who held that role for the team in 2012 was Chris Pressley, but a late-season knee injury led to his eventual departure form the team.

Now, the Cleveland Browns are signing him to potentially be their starting FB, according to Tony Grossi of Cleveland.com:

Pressley was assigned to the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list prior to the start of the 2013 season due to a knee injury that predated the start of training camp. Once Pressley returned to practice on a roster exemption and passed his physical, the Bengals waived him in December, and no team ever signed him.

No that he's off the market, the Bengals won't have him as an option to fill their need for a true FB, but they may opt to keep Orson Charles and continue to use him as an H-back.

The NFL Draft look like the likeliest option to get a FB if the Bengals do indeed want one.
