Browns sign Larry Grant

The big ticket free agents signed contracts long ago, leaving teams to pick over a small list of leftovers if they want some veteran help at this point in the offseason.

The Browns did that and found something they liked in linebacker Larry Grant. The team announced Wednesday that they have signed Grant after he tried out for the team at last weekend’s rookie minicamp.

Grant played two games for the Bears last season after opening the year serving a four-game suspension for violating the league’s performance-enhancing drug policy. Before that, he spent two years with the 49ers and three years with the Rams, playing in every game from 2009-2012 as a backup inside linebacker and special teams regular for the two NFC West clubs.

He’ll try to earn the same role for the Browns, who signed Karlos Dansby as a free agent and added Christian Kirksey to the position group in the draft.

    Grant’s actually a decent player. He had a big primetime game 2 or 3 years ago when one of the SF star linebackers was out hurt.

    You can never have too many linebackers in a 3-4 defense.

    They’d have better luck signing Cary Grant.

    Larry Grant filled in good for the niners when Willis got injured, but then he did get busted for PED’s. He’s worth a try, could be a real solid player.

    As a Bengals fan I gotta admit the Browns look serious about winning NOW. Their offseason signings and to a lesser extent their draft have been impressive. Now, just make sure you save your best for those two out-of-state pretenders.

    Nice. or Hugh Grant.

    I personally think it should have been Lou Grant

    He’s probably better than Amy Grant.

    Why did the Cleveland Browns bring in a veteran quarterback (Vince Young), let him tryout for the team, then sign him to a contract, and then cut him before he has a chance to compete, without any explanation…. That only hurt Vince Young and his ability to sign with another team….
    Why would a team do that to a VETERAN quarterback?????

    Ray Farmer & Co. are just doing their due diligence.

    In Ray we trust!
