For the Cleveland Browns, the second day of free agency apparently is just an extension of the first, with the only difference being a shift toward addressing defensive shortcomings.
One of the NFL's most aggressive franchises at the outset of the free agency period, the Browns on Sunday added two more players, reaching an agreement with veteran defensive tackle Ted Washington and signing punter Dave Zastudil. The moves continue the momentum generated on Saturday, when the Browns signed center LeCharles Bentley, left offensive tackle Kevin Shaffer and wide receiver Joe Jurevicius.
Contract details on the Zastudil deal were not immediately available. Washington will sign a two-year contract worth $7 million. Cleveland entered free agency with $27.1 million in available cap funds, the fourth most in the league, and general manager Phil Savage and coach Romeo Crennel have used that advantage to quickly upgrade their roster.
