ECU’s Bryant signs

contract with Browns

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Browns have signed troubled rookie defensive lineman Armonty Bryant to a four-year contract.

The seventh-round pick was arrested on drunken driving charges shortly after he was drafted by Cleveland in April out of East Central   University.

Bryant was also arrested on a felony drug charge while in school.

The Browns are sticking by Bryant, who vowed at last month’s NFL rookie symposium to reward the team for its faith in him.

Cornerback Leon McFadden, a third-round pick from San Diego State, was signed Friday as the team’s rookies reported for training camp.

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.
