Tendered.

The Cleveland Browns officially announced several roster moves after NFL Free Agency opened at 4 p.m. today, which includes Jordan Norwood, Brian Schaefering, and John Greco.

Staff writer for ClevelandBrowns.com Matt Florjancic reported the news:

The Cleveland Browns have tendered wide receiver Jordan Norwood and defensive lineman Brian Schaefering. Both Norwood and Schaefering were exclusive rights free agents. The Browns also signed offensive lineman John Greco to a contract extension. He would have become a free agent at 4:00pm/ET Tuesday.

Florjancic continues by touching on each of the players:

Schaefering, originally a free agent signing of the Browns in 2009, registered 29 tackles and a ½ sack in 2011. He has made 10 starts and registered 72 stops, as well as two sacks in 37 career games with the Browns.

Schaefering made a career-high eight tackles against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 4, 2011 and had 1½ sacks in a 13-6 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Dec. 10, 2009.

Norwood played in 14 games, making four starts with the Browns in 2011. He caught 23 passes for 268 yards and one touchdown. Norwood set several career highs last fall, including his five-reception game at San Francisco on Oct. 30, 69 receiving yards on four catches at Cincinnati on Nov. 27 and a long reception of 51 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Nov. 20.

The Browns traded a pick in this April’s draft to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for Greco on August 1, 2011. The Youngstown, Ohio native and Boardman High School product played in 15 of the Browns’ 16 games last fall.
