CLEVELAND (AP) - Defensive tackle Jason Fisk signed a three-year contract Monday with the Cleveland Browns.

The 10-year veteran played the last three seasons with San Diego. He recorded 30 tackles and one sack in 15 games in 2004.

Fisk should give the Browns some depth following the trade of defensive tackle Gerard Warren to Denver for a fourth-round draft pick.

Fisk was a seventh-round pick of the Vikings out of Stanford in 1995. He played four seasons with Minnesota and three with Tennessee.

The 32-year-old has appeared in 11 postseason games, starting six. He had two sacks in the Vikings' NFC Championship loss to Atlanta in 1999, and sacked Kurt Warner in the Titans' Super Bowl loss to St. Louis in 2000.

Fisk's career totals include 450 tackles, 19 sacks and three interceptions in 150 games.

Bengals ink Robinson

CINCINNATI (AP) - Free-agent defensive tackle Bryan Robinson signed a three-year contract with the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday, bolstering the team's porous run defense.

The Bengals declined to release contract details. The team's Web site reported it was a $6 million deal.

Robinson, 30, played six seasons with Chicago before spending last season in Miami, where he had 69 tackles and 13 starts.

The Toledo native has missed just one game the last six seasons, starting 90 of 96 games.

Robinson is the Bengals' third signing since the free-agent season began March 2. The team re-signed wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh and running back Rudi Johnson, who lost the chance to become an unrestricted free agent when the Bengals declared him their franchise player.
