The Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with former Detroit Lions wide receiver Mike Furrey.

Furrey played three seasons for the Lions and played three with the Rams before that.

Mike Furrey started out his career in the XFL, where he played for the Las Vegas Outlaws for only one season. He then signed with the Arena League after that.

His best season came in 2006, during which he caught 98 passes for 1,086 yards and six touchdowns.

In Cleveland, Furrey joins a depth chart that includes Braylon Edwards, Donte' Stallworth, Josh Cribbs, Syndric Steptoe, David Patten, Jordan Norwood, Lance Leggett, Paul Hubbard, Devale Ellis, Brian Robiskie, and Mohamed Massaquoi.

With Stallworth in legal trouble, he will likely be cut in the very near future.

Edwards could also likely find his way off the Cleveland Browns roster. He has been looking to be traded for several weeks now.

Cleveland looked to trade him to the Giants on draft day but didn't get an offer that intrigued them at all.

The Browns are looking for multiple draft picks for the former Pro Bowler from the University of Michigan. They have a lot of young and talented receivers on their roster that have incredible potential.

Cleveland must look to trade away Edwards very soon. There are several teams that could potentially be interested, including the New York Jets.
