Browns sign rookie DB Asante

CLEVELAND (AP) — The Cleveland Browns have signed rookie defensive back Larry Asante to a multiyear contract.

Terms were not disclosed Friday by the Browns, who selected Asante in the fifth round (No. 160 overall) in April's NFL draft.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Asante started 36 games in three years at Nebraska. He had 24 tackles, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and a sack for the Cornhuskers.

Asante is the third rookie signed by the Browns, joining sixth-rounders defensive lineman Clifton Geathers and receiver Carlton Mitchell.

The Browns have yet to sign cornerback Joe Haden, their first-round pick, safety T.J. Ward (second), running back Montario Hardesty (second), quarterback Colt McCoy (third) or guard Shawn Lauvao (third).
