    The Cleveland Browns have re-signed free-agent linebacker Tank Carder [url=][/url] , who missed last season with a knee injury.

    Carder has been a valuable contributor since the Browns claimed him off waivers from Buffalo in 2012. He has been on the Cleveland roster longer than any player, surviving coaching changes and upheaval.

    The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder was expected to start last season before he tore a knee ligament during a Aug. 21 exhibition against the New York Giants. He had surgery and was placed on injured reserve.

    Joe Schobert took Carder’s spot and made the Pro Bowl in his second season.

    Carder has appeared in 77 games with the Browns and was voted a captain in 2016. The Bills selected Carder in the fifth round of 2012 draft out of TCU.

    Texans linebacker Jadeveon Clowney made one deadline when he was cleared to practice in training camp after having arthroscopic knee surgery in January.

    Another deadline now looms for Clowney and the Texans. General Manager Brian Gaine is maintaining the team’s policy of not negotiating contracts during the regular season [url=]Customized Oakland Raiders Jerseys[/url] , which leaves the two sides with just over a month to come to an agreement on a new deal before Clowney begins the fifth and final year of his rookie deal.

    On Wednesday, Gaine gave an update on a process that he said took a backseat to Clowney’s health this offseason.

    “Yes, JD’s No. 1 focus was to get healthy and our No. 1 focus was to get him healthy [url=]Theo Riddick Jersey[/url] ,” Gaine said, via the Houston Chronicle. “He is now. We’re hoping that will produce dividends for us during training camp because he is going to be available to us to be out there and be with his teammates. These things take time. It’s a work in progress. It’s amicable. They’re developing. It just takes a little time with contracts as such.”

    Clowney is set to make $12.306 million after the Texans exercised their option on his contract. He had 9.5 sacks and 21 tackles for loss last season while playing all 16 games for the first time in his NFL career.
