Browns Sign Former CFL Rookie of the Year

According to FoxSports.com’s Adam Caplan, the Browns came to terms with RB Martell Mallett (5-foot-11, 200 lbs.). An undrafted free agent from Arkansas Pine-Bluff, Mallett went north of the border in 2009, where he played for the CFL’s BC Lions where he broke the franchise record with 213 yards against the Montreal Alouettes and was given the CFL’s equivalent of the rookie-of-the-year award.

This year, Mallett signed with the Philadelphia Eagles where he lasted until the final cuts on September 3. The Eagles placed him on their practice squad, but he was released on September 21.

Mallett is 24 years old.
