Browns Re-Sign DE Rogers, Raise Ticket Prices

CLEVELAND (AP) - Defensive end Tyrone Rogers signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Browns on Friday.

Terms of the contract were not released, but it came on the same day that the franchise announced an across-the-board ticket hike of $2, which means that the cheapest ticket in the stadium will now cost $34.

Rogers, who has been with the Browns since their return to the NFL in 1999, played in all 16 games last year, starting 10. He had 41 tackles and was second on the team with six sacks.

About the ticket-price increase, Browns officials said that they are still among the most affordable in the NFL.
