Browns Sign Fifth-Round Draft Pick

BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns signed fifth-round draft pick Andra Davis on Thursday to a three-year deal.

Financial terms were not released.

Davis, a 6-foot-1, 244-pound linebacker, was taken No. 141 overall, out of Florida. He was a finalist last season for the Butkus Award, given to the nation's top linebacker. He started every game in 2001 at middle linebacker and led the Gators with 107 tackles.

The Browns have signed three other draft picks -- linebacker Kevin Bentley, offensive tackle Joaquin Gonzalez and tight end Darnell Sanders.

Running back William Green, the club's top pick, remains unsigned along with three others.
