Browns linebacker Craig Robertson has signed his exclusive rights free agent tender with the club.

The transaction was disclosed by the NFL on Monday.

The 26-year-old Robertson started 14 games at inside linebacker in Cleveland’s base 3-4 scheme in 2013, recording 85 tackles and three sacks. Robertson and Karlos Dansby project as the Browns’ primary inside linebackers when the club employs 3-4 looks this season.

A North Texas product, Robertson signed with the Browns’ practice squad in December 2011. He has notched 178 tackles, recorded four sacks and intercepted three passes in the last two seasons for Cleveland.
