The Cleveland Browns have signed former Chiefs center Eric Ghiaciuc, according to Scout.com’s Adam Caplain (via Dawgs By Nature).
Ghiaciuc was originally selected by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. He certainly has some experience under his belt — he started in 42 of the 48 games he played in with the Bengals from 2005-2008. Ghiaciuc spent some time off and on with the Chiefs and the Chargers last season but didn’t see in-game action.
The Bengals weren’t disappointed to see Ghiaciuc leave after the 2008 season. In addition, for what its worth, Rotoworld states that “Ghiaciuc has been among the least effective offensive linemen in the league the past few seasons.”
Ghiaciuc is definitely one guy I was way off base with during training camp. I thought he had a chance to contribute and even push for the starting job, especially after running some with the first team early on. Then he fails to make it out of camp and was without a job until the Chargers signed him in December.
Maybe going back to the division he has experience as a starter will help get his career back on track.
