CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with running back Chris Ogbonnaya on a two-year contract.

Ogbonnaya made one start and played in 15 games last season, usually replacing Trent Richardson on third down. He finished with 24 receptions for 187 yards and gained 30 yards on eight carries. He made a career-high six receptions for 73 receiving yards in a win at Cincinnati, and had a career-long 54-yard reception against the New York Giants

Unfortunately, his most notable moment may have been when he lined up as the eighth player on the line of scrimmage and was penalized, nullifying a touchdown pass in Cleveland's 25-15 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Ogbonnaya was signed by the Browns in 2011 and started four games.

The Browns have three running backs under contract: Richardson, Ogbonnaya and Montario Hardesty.
