Browns, Maiava Agree to Deal
Kaluka Maiava

Posted Jul 14, 2009

The Orange and Brown Report's John Taylor is relaying this morning that the Cleveland Browns have agreed to a contract with OLB Kaluka Maiava.


The OBR’s John Taylor is reporting that the Cleveland Browns and OLB Kaluka Maiava have agreed to a four-year deal. The four-year deal is believed to be worth just under $2.5 million, and was agreed to yesterday. Maiava would be the second Browns draft pick to sign, following a reported contract agreement with sixth-round pick RB James Davis late last week.

Maiava was a surprise selection by the Browns in the fourth round of the 2009 draft (104th overall). While Rey Maualuga, Brian Cushing, and Clay Matthews, Jr., received far more attention, Maiava demonstrated a great deal of versatility at USC, playing both the inside and outside linebacker positions. The 5-11, 232 pound Maiava could be considered somewhat small for the linebacker position at the NFL.

Maiava played in 13 games for USC in 2008 with 66 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss with an interception and five passes broken up.
