Browns Come To Terms With Former Second-Round Pick Stephen Paea


Less than a week after dumping defensive lineman/linebacker Paul Kruger, the Cleveland Browns inked free agent defensive lineman Stephen Paea to a new deal.

Paea became available after the Washington Redskins dumped him earlier in the week.  He will add some needed pressure to former first round pick Danny Shelton, who has underachieved to this point in his career.

With the lack of depth on the Cleveland defensive line, this is really a no-brainer signing for the Browns.  If he can contribute, great and if not there’s not a lot ventured.
