Browns Reportedly Had Visit from CB Aaron Berry on Monday

The former Jets cornerback came in for a visit, but if signed, would not be a high-profile player.

According to a report by Brian Costello of the New York Post, while the Giants were busy signing CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie to a 5-year, $39 million deal ($15 million guaranteed), the Cleveland Browns hosted former Jets CB Aaron Berry for a visit.

Berry was one of several free agent players we said to watch for in our free agency live blog last Wednesday, due to the connection between Berry and head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine was the Jets' defensive coordinator in 2012, a season in which Berry played 7 games but only registered 2 tackles. He missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL.

Since entering the league in 2010 as an undrafted free agent with the Detroit Lions, Berry has received more publicity for his off-the-field issues than his on-field work. If the Browns sign Berry, it would not be some blockbuster deal by any stretch -- he'd be getting a minimum salary with a chance to prove his worth in camp.
