The Cleveland Browns signed third-string quarterback Austin Davis to a two-year contract extension Wednesday.

The deal is worth $4.173 million, a source told ESPN.com. The deal also includes a $500,000 signing bonus and has $600,000 in total guarantees.

Davis, 26, started eight games for the St. Louis Rams last season, throwing for 2,001 yards, 12 touchdowns and nine interceptions. The Rams cut Davis on Sept. 5 and he was picked up by the Browns on Sept. 7 after he cleared waivers.

The Browns signed Davis when backup quarterback Johnny Manziel was suffering from tendinitis in his throwing elbow.
