Hubbard signed a five-year, $37.5 million contract with the Browns on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Hubbard started just 14 games in a four-year stint with the Steelers, but the Browns hope his arrival will be steady insurance in case 10-time Pro Bowler Joe Thomas (triceps) decides to retire.
The lone injured player on the inactive list posted by the Steelers for their season opener Thursday night against New England is quarterback Landry Jones, who is dealing with a concussion.
Also inactive are tight end Jesse James, wideout Sammie Coates, cornerback Ross Cockrell, defensive ends Letterius Walton and Caushaud Lyons and offensive lineman Chris Hubbard.
The Steelers announced they re-signed guard Chris Hubbard to a one-year contract. The second-year pro was on the active roster all season, appearing in one game, after spending 2013 on the practice squad.
The Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Saturday's game against the Ravens: quarterback Landry Jones, wide receiver Lance Moore, cornerback Ike Taylor, running back Le'Veon Bell, defensive end Clifton Geathers, guard Chris Hubbard and tight end Michael Palmer.
The Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 17 showdown with the Bengals: cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm), safety Troy Polamalu (knee), tight end Michael Palmer (groin), quarterback Landry Jones, wide receiver Justin Brown, defensive end Clifton Geathers and guard Chris Hubbard.
Taylor, Polamalu and Palmer were all listed as questionable to play Sunday but none of the three will be available for the regular-season finale. The three players listed as probable to play in Week 17 are all active, including tackle Kelvin Beachum (back), tight end Matt Spaeth (elbow) and linebacker Vince Williams (ankle).
Pittsburgh is a 3 1/2-point favorite at home against Cincinnati.
The Steelers declared safety Troy Polamalu (knee), linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), quarterback Landry Jones and guard Chris Hubbard inactive for Monday's game at Tennessee.
As expected, several key Steelers have been ruled out for the Sunday game against the Jets with injuries, including cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm), safety Troy Polamalu (knee) and linebacker Ryan Shazier (ankle). Also injured and out are safeties Shamarko Thomas and Ross Ventrone, both with hamstring ailments.
Guard Chris Hubbard and quarterback Landry Jones are the lone healthy scratches.
The Steelers have listed the following players as inactive for Sunday night's Week 9 matchup with the Ravens: cornerbacks Ike Taylor (forearm) and B.W. Webb, safety Ross Ventrone (hamstring), quarterback Landry Jones, nose tackle Dan McCullers, guard Christopher Hubbard and wide receiver Justin Brown.
Both Taylor and Ventrone had been ruled out on the team's final injury report of the week, so their absence is not a surprise. All nine players listed as probable to play are active for Sunday's game.
The Steelers declared cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm), linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring), nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder), quarterback Landry Jones, guard Christopher Hubbard and wideout Justin Brown inactive for Monday's game against the Texans.
As expected, linebacker Ryan Shazier (knee), cornerback Ike Taylor (forearm) and strong safety Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) are all on the injured list released Sunday by the Steelers for their clash in Cleveland.
Their healthy scratches are quarterback Landry Jones, wideout Martavis Bryant, nose tackle Daniel McCullers and tackle Chris Hubbard.

The Steelers have listed WR Martavis Bryant, WR Lance Moore, RB Dri Archer, DT Dan McCullers, OL Wesley Johnson, QB Landry Jones and OL Christopher Hubbard as inactive Week 2 against the Ravens.
Bryant is the most surprising name on the list. He came into the game listed as probable due to a shoulder injury. Both Moore and Archer had already been ruled out prior to the game.
As expected, wide receiver Lance Moore and cornerback Brice McCain have been ruled out by the Steelers for their opener against visiting Cleveland with groin injuries.
The only other injured non-offensive lineman who won't be on the field is wide receiver Martavis Bryant (shoulder). Nose tackle Daniel McCullers, quarterback Landry Jones and offensive linemen Chris Hubbard and Wesley Johnson are also inactive.
Seven Steelers who finished the season on the practice squad have been signed by the team to futures contracts.
They are running back Alvester Alexander, wide receiver Justin Brown, offensive linemen Bryant Browning and Chris Hubbard, wide receiver Kashif Moore, safety Ross Ventrone and linebacker Kion Wilson.
