Browns sign 3 rookie tryouts

Jeff Walcoff, Staff Writer


The Browns have signed linebacker Kevin Sears, offensive lineman Cliff Louis and running back Jerome Jackson, the team announced Tuesday.

Each player attended this past weekend's rookie minicamp as a tryout candidate.

Jackson played amongst a talented group of running backs at Michigan that included Michael Hart and Kevin Grady. In his four-year career, the 5-feet-11 and 206-pound back rushed for 718 yards on 143 carries with 8 touchdowns.

A mammoth 6-foot-8, 300-pound prospect from Division I-AA Morgan State, Louis started for three seasons as a Bear.

Sears (6-4, 242) was a four-year contributor at linebacker for the Tigers, appearing in 41 games during his collegiate career. In 2004, he played in and started 12 games, finishing with 29 tackles (4.5 for loss) and an interception.

To make room on the roster, the team has released three players who signed as undrafted rookies lat week: running back Tyrone Moss, offensive lineman Rick Drushal, and linebacker Funtaine Hunter.
