The Cleveland Browns have made yet another addition to their quarterback room. On Thursday, the team officially announced the signing of former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Josh Dobbs.

Dobbs, 27, was selected by the Steelers in the fourth round of the 2017 NFL Draft. In limited action with the team, the Tennessee product had 45 passing yards and an interception

Last Friday, there were reports stating that Dobbs would sign with the Browns. It just took time for the front office to work out the final details.

Dobbs hinted at this signing with a recent tweet, writing, "Prolly should change my profile pic." At that time, his profile picture was of him in a Steelers jersey.

It's unclear what Dobbs' role on the Browns will look like this fall.

Cleveland currently has a top-tier starting quarterback in Deshaun Watson and viable backup option in Jacoby Brissett.

At the very least, Dobbs should have a chance to compete for the third spot on the depth chart. That is, of course, assuming the Browns trade Baker Mayfield later this offseason.
