Isaiah Trufant signs with Cleveland Browns

Former New York Jets cornerback Isaiah Trufant, a non-tendered restricted free agent, signed with the Cleveland Browns, his agent announced on Twitter.

Trufant will be reunited with former Jets defensive coordinator Mike Pettine, the recently hired Browns coach. The 5-foot-7 Trufant played primarily on special teams for the Jets; he played in only 68 defensive snaps last season. He finished third on the team with 13 special-teams tackles.

He played four seasons with the Jets. They decided not to retain him after re-signing Ellis Lankster and Darrin Walls.
