Berea, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Vince Young has landed on another roster.

Tyler Thigpen, too.

The Cleveland Browns said Thursday they have signed the veteran quarterbacks, along with linebacker Zac Diles, after all three were given tryouts during the team's voluntary minicamp this week.

Young, 30, hasn't played an NFL down since 2011, when he started three games and made appearances in six for the talented but underperforming Philadelphia Eagles team he dubbed "The Dream Team" in the preseason.

The former No. 3 draft pick, who played for Tennessee his first five seasons, was cut in the preseason each of the last two years by the Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers.

Thigpen, 30, last played for the Bills in 2012, appearing in four games and throwing five passes. The 2007 seventh-round pick has also played for Kansas City and Miami.

Diles, 28, had one tackle in two games for Tennessee last season and has also played for Indianapolis, Tampa Bay and Houston. He was a one-time starter for the Texans between 2008-10.
