Browns reportedly sign cornerback taken in sixth round

By dan Published: July 14, 2009

Following the news earlier that the team has come to terms with rookie linebacker Kaluka Maiava, it looks like the Browns have signed another draft pick.
Carlos Holmes of the Dayton Daily News is reporting that the team has signed cornerback Don Carey to a four-year deal.
Carey was the team's first of three players selected in the sixth round. A four-year starter at Norfolk State, Carey finished his collegiate career with 179 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss, 10 interceptions and 35 pass deflections.
Carey impressed Browns head coach Eric Mangini during minicamp in June.
''He's impressive in terms of the questions he asked,'' Mangini said. ''I saw that in the very first meeting I was in, the very first meeting he was in where he asked a question most vets don't ask a month down the road. He caught it right away and asked it. At that point you know he's paying attention and he's very bright.''
The Browns' Don Carey should not be confused with the Portage County Don Carey who is growing 7,000 tobacco plants.
