The Cleveland Browns signed another quarterback to their depth chart on Friday. The team signed former Alliance of American Football quarterback Garrett Gilbert, who last played for the Orlando Apollos.

According to ourlads.com, Gilbert will be the third quarterback on the roster. Baker Mayfield is the starter, while Drew Stanton is the backup.

As a member of the Apollos, he led the AAF in passing. He also guided the Apollos to a league-best 7-1 record, before the league suspended operations.

He was the only AAF passer with 2,000 yards through eight games. He went 157 of 259 with 2,152 yards with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Gilbert — who will be 28-years-old in July — last played in the NFL with the Carolina Panthers in 2017 and 2018. He appeared in just one game with the Panthers in 2018.

As an NFL player, he went 2 of 3 for 40 yards. He also was sacked one in a 33-14 win over the New Orleans Saints.

Gilbert spent the 2017 season with the Panthers as a practice squad player.

Before joining the Panthers, he also spent the 2014 season with the New England Patriots and the St. Louis Rams. However, he never entered into an NFL game during his tenure there.

Yet, he was a member of the Patriots when they won Super Bowl XLIX in a 28-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Feb. 1, 2015 at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
