The Cleveland Browns have reached a five-year agreement worth $40 million with outside linebacker Paul Kruger. Kruger spent the first three years of his career with the Baltimore Ravens after being selected in the second round of the 2009 Draft. Kruger played a big role in the Ravens’ 2012 Super Bowl run, forcing a fumble from Andrew Luck in the Wild Card round and recording a sack and a fumble recovery against the Colts in the Divisional Round. He also has two sacks in Super Bowl XLVII.
