Source: Browns agree to terms with Steinbach
NFL.com wire reports


CLEVELAND (March 2, 2007) -- The Cleveland Browns have agreed to contract terms with free-agent offensive lineman Eric Steinbach on a seven-year deal, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told The Associated Press.

Financial terms were not immediately available.

The versatile Steinbach, who played the past four seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals, will sign the contract once he passes a physical, said the person within the NFL who asked to remain anonymous because the signing hasn't been finalized.

As long as there are no hangups, this will be the second straight year the Browns have addressed their offensive line by signing the top free agent available. Last March, the club gave a six-year, $36 million contract to Pro Bowl center LeCharles Bentley, who suffered a career-threatening knee injury early in training camp.

The Browns are counting on better luck with Steinbach, a 6-foot-6, 290-pounder who can play guard or tackle.
