The Browns made a series of roster moves, the team announced Wednesday evening.

The Cleveland Browns today signed unrestricted free agent defensive back Dimitri Patterson, who spent the past two years with the Philadelphia Eagles. The club also signed free agent punter Richmond McGee and undrafted free agent linebackers Archie Donald and Eric Gordon. In addition, the team placed punter Reggie Hodges on injured reserve and waived linebackers Derrick Addai and Alex Wujciak.

He has totaled 64 career tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and five interceptions, including one that he returned 40-yards for a touchdown last season. In 2010, he started nine of the 16 games in which he appeared and registered career-highs in tackles (62) and interceptions (4), while also recording his first career sack.  Patterson transferred to Tuskegee University (2004) after spending three years at Southeast Missouri State University (2001-03). He is a native of Orlando, Fla., where he attended Evans High School.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Philadelphia in 2008, McGee has spent training camps with the Eagles (2008) and the Bears (2009-10). He was in camp with Chicago this year before being waived on August 1. Last season, he had a brief stint on the Bears’ practice squad. McGee handled the punting and kickoff duties during his collegiate career at the University of Texas (2002-05), where he booted 130 punts for a 39.6 average. He is a native of Garland, Texas where he attended Garland High School.
