BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns agreed to a five-year deal with offensive lineman John Greco and signed free agent wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt.

Financial terms of the deals were not disclosed.

Greco is a sixth-year veteran who is now signed through the 2017 season. The 6-foot-4, 325-pounder appeared in 14 games, including 10 starts, at left guard for the Browns last season.

"One of our goals," said Browns CEO Joe Banner, "is whenever possible to develop and keep our own players. We're glad in this case that it worked out, and was mutually beneficial."

Greco was originally a third-round pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2008 who was acquired by the Browns in 2011.

"John is a solid, all-around teammate, on and off the field," said coach Rob Chudzinski. "He was given an opportunity to play last year and really showed well. He's respected in the locker room for his approach, consistency and team-first attitude."

Roosevelt is a 6-foot, 200-pounder in his third NFL season who has appeared in 16 career games, all with the Buffalo Bills. He was signed as an undrafted rookie by the Bills in 2010 out of the University of Buffalo, and has 25 career receptions for 396 yards with one touchdown.
