Trufant, 31, played just 72 snaps on defense during the 2013 season. but registered eight tackles on special teams. Trufant has links to Browns’ Head coach Mike Pettine from his time as defensive coordinator with the Jets from 2009-2012. Trufant is a football journeymen, who began his career with the Spokane Shock in the Arena Football League in 2006. After playing a total of five seasons in the AFL with three different teams, Trufant played two-years with the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League. In my opinion the signing of Trufant is just a move to add depth to the corner position and special teams. Trufant is coming to the Browns’ after ending the 2013 season with the Jet on injured reserve due to a knee injury in November. If he recovers from the knee injury and is ready to compete for a spot on special teams, he will add much-needed depth at the corner position and possible challenge Cornerback Buster Skrine for playing time on nickel coverage.
