Cleveland Browns Sign TE Robert Royal

Andrew BrittonCorrespondent IMarch 5, 2009

The Cleveland Browns made their first move in free agency today as they signed Tight End Robert Royal. He is 30 years old and weights in at 255. The 6'4" TE is best classified as a well-balanced player.

He is known as a blocking TE but in (what Browns hope to be) a more exciting offense may see a few more balls thrown his way. Royal will upgrade the locker room atmosphere and provides a little bit more confidence to the position vacated be Kellen Winslow Jr.


Other TE's:

Heiden is coming off an ACL injury.

Rucker has yet to see significant playing time.
