The Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms with rookie FS Larry Asante on a four-year deal worth $1.96 million, according to Adam Caplan, of FOXSports.com.

  Browns | Larry Asante and T.J. Ward battling for safety spot    Sun Jun 27, 11:24 PM

  Browns | Open to starting two rookies at safety    Fri Jun 4, 12:00 PM

Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini said he is open to the possibility of starting FS T.J. Ward and FS Larry Asante at safety this season, reports Aaron Wilson, of NationalFootballPost.com.

Footballguys view: This tells you everything you need to know about Abram Elam and Mike Adams prospects in IDP leagues this year. At least the team is somewhat experienced at corner with Eric Wright and Sheldon Brown, but with little pass rush to speak of, we'll be circling the Cleveland games on Carson Palmer, Joe Flacco, and Ben Roethlisberger's schedule, although Roethlisberger could miss the first matchup in week 6 due to his suspension, and the second Cleveland-Pittsburgh game happens in week 17, after most fantasy leagues have awarded their championship trophy.
