Cleveland Browns Organization Profile

The Cleveland Browns finalized a trade for offensive lineman John Greco, sending an undisclosed draft pick to the St. Louis Rams in exchange for him.

The Browns also re-signed free agent defensive lineman Jayme Mitchell.

Greco is a former third-round draft pick from Toledo who has started four games. He was a three-time all-conference selection in college.

Last season, Mitchell was acquired by the Browns via trade with the Minnesota Vikings in October.

He appeared in two games with Minnesota, recorded a sack in the opener, and was inactive for all 12 games last season with the Browns.

Originally signed by Minnesota as an undrafted free agent in 2006, Mitchell has appeared in 29 regular season contests in his career, recording 29 tackles and five sacks.

The Cleveland Browns played their first football game on September 6th, 1946 against the Miami Seahawks and promptly went on to dominate the All-American Football Conference until it folded in 1949. Leaping to the NFL, the Cleveland Browns under the leadership of Paul Brown dominated the 1950s and 1960s as well, spawning a wealth of innovation and talent. After the team was sold to Art Modell in the early 60s, the teams fortunes began to fade, although the Browns won the NFL championship in 1964. In 1995, Modell moved the team to Baltimore, although Browns fans fought for and retained the rights to the franchise's name, colors, records, and history. The Browns re-started as an expansion franchise in 1999.
