According to the Beacon Journal the Cleveland Browns have signed Chris Pressley, a traditional fullback they hope will pave the way for running back Ben Tate. Pressley was a former Cincinnati Bengals full back, that is a true traditional full back.
Pressley is a huge kid, weighing in at 260 pounds. He is a very big blocking back that can move relatively well for a big man. From 2004 to 2009, Pressley played for Wisconsin Badgers under head coaches Barry Alvarez (2004–05) and Bret Bielema (2005–09). Pressley’s collegiate statistics were not outstanding, but his hard work ethic and willingness to sacrifice his body landed him on an NFL roster after going undrafted in 2009. I have to agree with Tony Grossi, I am sure that Ben Tate of the Browns is extremely happy and smiling after this signing.
Yes, #Browns have rediscovered the blocking fullback. Per source, team is signing ex-Bengal FB Chris Pressley. 5-11 and 260 pounds.

On the #Browns signing of 260-lb FB Chris Pressley, I imagine Ben Tate would say, “Thank you very much.”
