Cleveland Browns Free Agent Signings: Former Pitt cornerback Aaron Berry signs with Browns

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Former Pitt cornerback Aaron Berry is back in the news. After missing all of last year with an injury, the Cleveland Browns are the latest team to give him a look, signing him on Monday.

His NFL career started off well enough, making the Detroit Lions' team a few years ago when a lot of people didn't give him a shot. Things quickly went downhill, though. After playing fairly well, Berry ripped fans after the season. A subsequent DUI and an alleged assault were enough to get him booted from Detroit.

Two years ago, he was given another shot in the league. But after playing in 2012 with the New York Jets, an ACL injury forced him out of action for all of last year.

Obviously hoping he can get back on the right track. There was talk of him competing for a starting spot with the Lions before he was released and he's really a guy that got farther in the pros than I thought he would.
