2012 NFL Draft: Browns Sign LB Emmanuel Acho, Per Report

The Cleveland Browns and 6th-round pick Emmanuel Acho agreed to a four-year, $2.178 million deal on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. That leaves only two players from the Browns' draft class unsigned: 1st-round picks Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden.

There should be no obstacles to deals for Richardson, the third-overall pick, and Weeden, the 22nd pick. The new rookie salary structure's slotting system is well defined thanks to the new collective Bargaining Agreement.

Acho is the brother of Arizona Cardinals linebacker Sam Acho, a 4th-round pick in last year's draft. Both spent their college playing days with Texas.

In 2011, Acho had 131 tackles, 19 tackles for a loss and three sacks for the Longhorns and was a first-team all-Big 12 selection in his senior season.
