Associated Press

The Associated Press is the essential global news network, delivering accurate, insightful news from every corner of the world, 24 hours a day. Since its founding in 1846, AP has been the first to report many of history’s most important moments, and every day, AP journalists, photographers and videographers file news from the front lines of the world's biggest stories. 

AP’s reporting, photography, audio and video are published and broadcast by the world’s leading newspapers, TV channels, apps, radio stations, websites and magazines—in fact, over half the world’s population sees AP news content on any given day. 

As a leader in the field of journalism, AP fights for freedom of the press and the public’s right to know. Its reporters take great risks to file in-depth stories from countries where the press is otherwise restrained, and in the U.S., AP aggressively uses the Freedom of Information Act to advocate for transparency and accountability in government.  

With more experience reporting and delivering news than any other agency, a well-earned reputation for independence and accuracy, and a fierce commitment to the people’s right to know, AP is the definitive source for trusted news.

Browns Sign QB Thigpen

 BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Browns have signed veteran quarterback Tyler Thigpen to help them get through their season finale at Baltimore.
   With quarterbacks Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer injured, the Browns will likely start rookie Connor Shaw against the Ravens with Thigpen backing him up. Thigpen knows Cleveland's offense after spending time with them during training camp this summer. He was waived on Aug. 12.
   The 6-foot-1 Thigpen is in his seventh NFL season out of Coastal Carolina. He's appeared in 29 games and made 12 starts while playing for Kansas City, Miami and Buffalo.
   Manziel injured his hamstring in Sunday's loss to Carolina and won't play in the finale. Hoyer has a shoulder injury and it's not yet known if he can play.
   To make room for Thigpen, the Browns waived fullback Ray Agnew, who started nine games and appeared in 12.
