Browns Sign DB Jereme Perry

8083_mediumThe Browns signed defensive back Jereme Perry to fill the roster spot left after cutting Kenny Wright. Although Perry is credited as playing for the Miami Dolphins last season, he's basically been a Brown during his young career. He only played in four games for the Dolphins last season, posting three tackles.

In 2006, Perry played in 12 games, totaling 18 tackles with the Browns. He actually started a game or two in October 2006 when both Leigh Bodden and Daven Holly were out due to injuries. Perry might be best known for a Week 10 effort that season against the Atlanta Falcons -- two plays after receiver Roddy White burned him for a 55-yard reception, he recovered a Michael Vick fumble to seal a surprising 17-13 victory on the road.

Perry was somewhat of a surprise cut last season, although his status was borderline most of the time. With two cornerbacks gone from last season, Perry actually has a legitimate chance of making the final roster if none of the young invitees are overly impressive.
