The Cleveland Browns have announced the signing of veteran CB Aaron Berry on Monday.
News: Browns sign DB Aaron Berry
— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) June 2, 2014
Howard Balzer reported a few weeks ago that the Browns held a tryout for Berry, but most likely wanted to wait until after June 1 to bring anyone in.
Berry, 25, visited with the Browns back in March as well, so he has been on their radar. He was unfortunately placed on season-ending injured reserve after he suffered a torn ACL back in July of last year.
Before that, he spent his first two years in the league with the Lions. He appeared in 11 games for Detroit in 2012 and posted 31 tackles and a 11 pass defenses.
Cleveland does have a good deal of talent at the cornerback position, boasting Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert, Buster Skrine and recent draft pick Pierre Desir. Berry would thus presumably fit as a special teams contributor.
