As they wait for Joe Thomas' decision Josh

, the Cleveland Browns added some offensive line
depth.

The team reached agreement on Tuesday with former Pittsburgh tackle Chris
Hubbard on a five-year contract, a person familiar with the negotiations told
The Associated Press. Hubbard, who spent the past four seasons with the
Steelers, will sign with the Browns once the free agency signing period begins
Wednesday, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because
teams are not permitted to finalize deals during the NFL's "legal tampering"
period.

Terms of the deal were not immediately known.

In Cleveland, the 26-year-old Hubbard will be reunited with former Steelers
offensive coordinator Todd Haley, who was hired by the Browns during the
offseason.

Hubbard made 14 starts the past two seasons. The 6-foot-4, 295-pounder is
primarily a right tackle Mike

front and more options in case Thomas retires. A 10-time Pro Bowler, Thomas, who
suffered a season-ending torn triceps in 2017, has not yet announced if he'll be
back next season or end his Hall of Fame career.

Hubbard was signed by the Steelers as an undrafted free agent from
Alabama-Birmingham in 2013. He started four games in 2016 and 10 in 2017.

Shon Coleman, a third-round draft pick in 2016, started all 16 for Cleveland
last season. If Thomas retires, it's possible the Browns could switch Coleman to
the left side or perhaps sign another free agent.

Bad weather on Thursday
left Lindsey Vonn with only one downhill training session for the final World
Cup races ahead of the Pyeongchang Olympics.

Organizers first delayed training by half an hour as they lowered the start
because of fog in the upper part of the Kandahar course, then called it off as
soon as it started to rain.

Weather conditions were expected to improve for the final training on Friday.
The races consist of a two-run sprint downhill on Saturday Colin

day.

Vonn, the 2010 Olympic downhill champion, has won seven World Cup races in
the German resort, including two downhills in the past two seasons.

The Pyeongchang Games start next Friday, with the women’s downhill scheduled
for Feb. 21.
