Report: Browns Sign Safety

S Hamza Abdullah started eight games for the Denver Broncos in 2007, but fell out favor with the team's management and was cut two weeks ago. UPDATE 9:20PM: This is confirmed now by the team. Steve Sanders was cut.

According to an article by Mike Klis of the Denver Post, the Cleveland Browns have signed S Hamza Abdullah to their roster.

In the 6-2, 216 pound Abdullah, the Browns are not getting a project: Abdullah started eight games for the Broncos in 2007 and was believed to be a candidate to start again in 2008 before suffering a groin injury in training camp. Abdullah's injury led to the safety feeling ostracized in Denver, and he was released after even being removed from special teams duty. 

Abdullah was originally a seventh round pick of the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2005 out of Washington State and was signed off the Buccaneers practice squad that year by Denver. He was released by the Broncos this year shortly after they signed Vernon Fox
