Browns sign CB Hood to one-year deal

Free-agent CB Rod Hood signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.

Hood spent the past two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals after playing four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles. The Cardinals released him in a cost-cutting move following their run to the Super Bowl. The durable Hood, who has started at least 14 games in five of his six seasons, is expected to compete for a starting spot with the Browns.

Hood had 40 tackles and one interception last season after registering a career-high five interceptions -– two returned for touchdowns –- in 2007.
