CLEVELAND (AP)

The Browns have signed rookie cornerback Leon McFadden and troubled defensive lineman Armonty Bryant to four-year contracts.

McFadden, a third-round pick from San Diego State, was signed Friday as the team's rookies reported for training camp. McFadden is expected to compete for the starting job opposite mainstay Joe Haden. The 5-foot-9, 195-pounder was selected 68th overall by the Browns.

Bryant was arrested on drunken-driving charges shortly after he was drafted by Cleveland in April out of East Central (Okla.) University. The 6-foot-4, 265-pound Bryant also was arrested on a felony drug charge while in school.

Bryant vowed at last month's NFL rookie symposium to reward the team for its faith in him.

The only Cleveland rookie not under contract is linebacker Barkevious Mingo, the sixth overall pick.

Cleveland's veterans are due next week with the first practice under new coach Rob Chudzinski scheduled for July 25.
