Browns Free Agency 2012: Cleveland Tenders Jordan Norwood, Re-Signs John Greco And More

The Cleveland Browns have been busy preparing for free agency, releasing punter Richmond McGee and right tackle Tony Pashos, who could miss the 2012 season due to injury, while re-signing offensive lineman John Greco and tendering wide receiver Jordan Norwood and defensive lineman Brian Schaefering, according to Brown beat writer Daryl Ruiter. Via Ruiter:

Jason LaCanfora reported Tuesday afternoon that the Browns had $15 million in cap space to work with prior to any moves being announced or the $1.6 million in cap relief being assessed as a result of penalties against Washington and Dallas.

The terms of Greco's deal were not immediately known, but the Browns saved over $2 million by releasing McGee and Pashos. Greco appeared in 15 games in a reserve role after being acquired in a trade with the St. Louis Rams.

Norwood played in 14 games in 2011, registering career-highs with 23 receptions for 268 yards and one touchdown. Schaefering appeared in all 16 games as a reserve and made 29 tackles and a half sack.
