(6/2/2014) The Browns have inked veteran cornerback Aaron Berry to a one-year deal, the team announced Monday. Berry is a fifth-year veteran who has played in 19 games with four starts. An injury sidelined him in 2013.
"Aaron Berry gives us both depth and competition at corner, and has the potential to upgrade our kicking game," general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement. "He's tough and relentless and his strength prior to his injury was man coverage. He's also accountable for his past, which is well-documented. We recognize that he's had missteps, as does he. Before and after that adverse period in his life, members of our coaching staff and players in our locker room worked with Aaron. From a communication standpoint, there's a degree of comfort we have with him, and a degree of comfort he'll have with the Browns. He has a chance to earn the opportunity to contribute to any success we'll have this fall."
