Pierre Desir signs his contract; First Browns rookie signed
The Browns have agreed to terms with cornerback Pierre Desir on his rookie contract.
Desir is the first one to strike a deal with the team.
The Browns selected Desir in the fourth round (No. 127 overall) out of Division II Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Mo. He’s expected to become an immediate special-teams contributor and provide depth behind cornerbacks Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert, the eighth overall pick in this year’s draft, and Buster Skrine.
