Larry Asante comments:
"First and foremost I just want to thank the Browns organization for drafting me."
"[I bring] toughness, physical and I am a leader. I am guy that will go to work everyday"
"I feel like I need to improve upon on my coverage skills. I will have great coaches in Cleveland who will help me improve upon on my weaknesses and make them into strengths."
"Colt is a great quarterback we had out battles. He is tough, he is smart and he is a winner that never gives up. I am glad he is on my team now."
-- Asante said he idolizes Brian Dawkins.
