Cleveland (WOIO) - The Browns claimed free agent rookie defensive tackle Ronnie Cameron off waivers Monday night.

Cameron, who played collegiately at Old Dominion, is 6-foot-2 and 304 pounds.  He had 73 tackles with 17 tackles for a loss with 6.5 sacks last season for the Monarchs.

The Browns weren't the only team to put in a claim on Cameron.  According to the Chicago Tribune, the Lions, Texans, Giants and Eagles also put in claims.  However, because of the Browns record last season (4-12) they were awarded Cameron.

To make room for Cameron, the Browns waived/injured fullback Eddie Williams.
