Browns sign former Buckeye Grant

BEREA, Ohio — Last week’s tryout camp for the Browns has been productive.

The Browns had 35 players participating in last week’s rookie minicamp and have signed nine of them to contracts.

On Saturday, coach Mike Pettine said he thought the Browns would sign some of the players that were in on a tryout basis.

"I think we’re going to find some guys potentially out of this camp," he said. "If I had to decide (now), there are a couple of guys that we have some really good feelings about."

The latest being former Ohio State linebacker Larry Grant, who is entering his fifth NFL season.

Grant (6-1, 251) was drafted originally by the San Francisco 49ers in 2008. He has played with the 49ers, Rams and Bears with a total of 64 tackles, five sacks, five passes broken up, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Most recently, he played in two games for the Bears in 2013.
