The Cleveland Browns signed quarterback Brett Ratliff off New England's practice squad, the team announced. In addition the club terminated the contract of wide receiver Sam Aiken.

Ratliff served as the third quarterback with the Browns for the first 14 games of 2009 and the backup for the final two contests. He was waived by Cleveland on September 4, 2010 and spent parts of the 2010 season on the practice squads of Jacksonville and New England.
