According to published reports, the Browns have re-signed defensive lineman Orpheus Roye to what is believed to be a three-year deal. Terms of the contract are not available.

 

The Browns are dead-set on improving their defense during the 2006 off-season, and took a step today by ensuring that it does not start the off-season getting worse.

According to published reports, the Browns have re-signed unrestricted free agent Orpheus Roye to what is believe to be a three-year deal. Roye was a starter on the Browns defensive line last season, and was arguably the team's top defensive player in 2005.

Roye originally came to the Browns as a free agent in 2000 from the Pittsburgh Steelers. After being bounced back-and-forth from defensive tackle to defensive end and back again, Roye had what is perhaps his best season back at defensive end for the Browns in their new 3-4 scheme.

The Browns and Roye have been negotiating throughout the off-season, and the Browns have said that it was a priority for them to get the defensive lineman back in the fold. Terms of the contract, per usual, are not available to the press.
