Cleveland, OH (92.3 The Fan) - The Browns beefed up their offensive line Tuesday by agreeing to terms with Steelers offensive tackle Chris Hubbard.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport first reported the agreement on a 5-year, $37.5 million deal that includes $18 million guarenteed with Hubbard to leave Pittsburgh.

Cleveland is paying Hubbard starting money so the question is, which tackle is he replacing? Joe Thomas or Shon Coleman?

Should Thomas opt to retire, the Browns don't feel they have his replacement in house. 

New offensive coordinator Todd Haley is familiar with Hubbard, who served as Pittsburgh's sixth lineman last season.

In four seasons Hubbard has started 14 games at right tackle, meaning the Browns may have opted for an upgrade on the right side of the line.
