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.

    Depth is a good thing, cuz he sure as heck won’t be starting.

    Now if they would just rescind their offer to Mack.

    Rescind their offer to Mack? It’s a transition tag with no other team offering yet…

    Browns are a built team. A dynasty built to last. A strong unified front office. A solid winning tradition. If only they would have added Butt Fumbler Sanchez they would have been totally unbeatable. Oh well I guess you can’t have it all

    Expansion year 15…

    There are a lot worse QBs on NFL rosters that has never had the success Vince Young has had …(NFL Rookie of the Year, 2 Pro Bowls, Playoff experience and Mobility). Vince has a career winning record of 31-19…
    I hope some team gives this quarterback a try-out, even if it’s for third string…
    GM/Coach, sit down and talk to this guy…I think he can help….

    Best guarantee opposing teams will score at will against the Browns. Worthless against the run or the pass.

  12. redandgoldhitman52 says: Apr 7, 2014 10:28 PM

    another questionable signing. smh

  13. littlestinger says: Apr 7, 2014 10:54 PM

    This guy is one of the worst inside backers I have seen play in the NFL over the last few years

  14. Pittsburgh Steelers says: Apr 7, 2014 11:13 PM

    Good move. This is the best player they have.

  15. Pittsburgh Steelers says: Apr 7, 2014 11:31 PM

    Imagine if the Browns made the Super Bowl. Isn’t that kind of a funny thought?

  16. iamdinguskhan says: Apr 8, 2014 4:40 AM

    There you go! Browns sign Vince Young and dominate the NFL. Last piece of the puzzle. He’s a mentally strong accurate quarterback . Vince and Browns going to the promise land in 2014.

    Same old Browns. $40MM in free agent money waiting to be used, but they resigned the 48/52 ILB in the NFL. Next you’d have to guess that instead of filling many gaping holes, they will do something like, I don’t know, focus on replacing 2 of their top 15 players(Ward, Jackson). Perhaps they can also sign a RB that has missed 35% of games in 4 years due to injuries while he fumbles(10) as much as he scores TDs(10) in those same 4 years. As usual, Cleveland fans are overjoyed by the offseason so far and are thinking the Super Bowl is inevitable.

    There doesn’t have to be any offers for the Browns to pull their $10 million dollar offer off the table! No center is worth that kind of money! He doesn’t want to be here anyway. He reminds me of a spoiled little kid!
