Browns Reportedly Sign Veteran CB
CB Terry Cousin

Posted May 22, 2008

Veteran cornerback Terry Cousin reportedly joins the Browns, in what is likely to be merely the first step that the Browns take to refurbish the position.


UPDATE 5/23 11AM: The Browns have officially announced the signing.

UPDATE 11PM: fills us in on Cousin's playing ability...

According to a report from's John Clayton, the Browns have signed journeyman cornerback Terry Cousin. The signing is likely to be merely the first step of several as the Browns look to refurbish a weakened depth chart at cornerback.

The 33-year-old Cousin (5'9", 185) has 12 years of experience with teams such as the Dolphins, Panthers, and Bears. Cousin spent the last three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He had probably his best season in 2005 with the Jaguars, when he appeared in all sixteen games and intercepted four passes. Cousin has picked off 12 passes over his career.

The OBR's Lane Adkins refers to Cousin as "a veteran corner... definite role and depth player. He's not a world-beater, but serviceable."

At first glance, Cousin seems to step into the roster hole created by the release of CB Kenny Wright, another journeyman cornerback with considerable (and geographically widespread) NFL experience. Another comparison could be made to smallish CB Ray Mickens, who helped provide depth on the Browns bench several seasons ago.

Stay tuned to the OBR for additional information as it becomes available.
