Browns to sign Maurice Hurst

Few teams have had more movement -- in both directions -- early in NFL free agency than the 49ers, but does Chris Simms think San Francisco's roster is in a better place than it was at the end of last season?

Defensive lineman Maurice Hurst missed the entire 2022 season and he’s set to make a return to action with the Browns this year.

Brad Stainbrook of reports that Hurst has agreed to a one-year deal with the AFC North club.

Hurst tore his biceps last summer while playing with the 49ers and was out for the year. He also missed all but two games of the 2021 season, so it has been a while since Hurst was healthy enough to play in the NFL.

When he was healthy enough, Hurst had 76 tackles, eight sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, and two fumble recoveries over three seasons with the Raiders. The Browns will be hoping he can bounce back this year.
