The Browns have signed rookie linebacker Emmanuel Acho to a four-year contract worth $2.178 million, Scout.com reported tonight.
The deal includes a signing bonus of $78,680, according to the report.
The Browns drafted Acho in the sixth round (No. 204 overall). The 6-foot-2, 238-pound Acho had a team-high 131 tackles, including 19 for loss and three sacks, last season as a senior at Texas. He started all 13 games at weakside linebacker in 2011.
Acho practiced at middle linebacker Friday during rookie minicamp. The Browns will likely experiment with him at outside linebacker, too.
