Browns Re-Sign Johnson Despite 2 Injury-Shortened Seasons

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns re-signed offensive lineman Tre Johnson to a one-year contract on Tuesday.

Financial terms of the contract were not released.

Johnson, who missed most of the last two seasons because of injury, played seven seasons with the Washington Redskins and was named to the NFC Pro-Bowl team in 1999. In 2000, he missed 12 games with an injured left knee and was signed by the Browns before training camp in 2001.

The 30-year-old Johnson started four games for the Browns before tearing a tendon in his right knee against Jacksonville. He was sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Before joining the Browns, Johnson started 65 of 80 games during his pro career.

Also, the Browns released defensive back Brandon Davis on Tuesday. Davis was with the Browns in training camp last season but didn't make the team. He was re-signed Jan. 14.
