Browns signed CB Aaron Berry.
Berry, 25, missed all of last season due to a torn ACL and has appeared in just 19 games across four NFL seasons due to suspension and injuries. He's a flier addition for Mike Pettine, who coached Berry with the Jets in 2012. Berry doesn't lack talent, but it'll be tough to crack the Browns' rapidly improving corner unit that includes Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert, Buster Skrine, Pierre Desir and Leon McFadden.

Free agent CB Aaron Berry worked out for the Browns this week.

Berry visited Cleveland back in March. It's been his only known interest of the offseason. Berry missed all of last season with a torn ACL. With Joe Haden, Justin Gilbert, Buster Skrine, and Pierre Desir locked into spots, Berry would compete for a special teams role. He knows coach Mike Pettine from their Jets days.

Free agent CB Aaron Berry visited the Browns on Monday.

Berry, 25, missed all of last season with a torn ACL. He knows Browns coach Mike Pettine from their time with the Jets in 2012. Berry doesn't lack talent, but his career has been marred by injuries and off-field issues to this point. He wouldn't require more than a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.
Mar 17 - 7:18 PM

Free agent CB Aaron Berry is drawing interest from teams.

Berry, 25, missed the entire 2013 season with a torn ACL and has appeared in just 19 games over the last four years due to injuries. A once-promising UDFA, Berry has flashed starting-caliber tools and can contribute on special teams. Berry should only require a non-guaranteed deal and is a low-risk, high-upside signing for teams willing to take a chance on his health.

Jets placed CB Aaron Berry on injured reserve with a torn ACL, ending his season.

Berry tore his ACL on the second day of Jets training camp. It's the third time in four years that his season has ended with a trip to injured reserve. Berry has also been involved in myriad off-field issues in his short career. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next March.

Jets CB Aaron Berry will miss the 2013 season with a torn ACL.

Berry suffered the injury early in training camp. Because he did practice, he's not eligible for the PUP list and will be either waived/injured or placed on I.R. Berry was a once-promising UDFA out of Pitt who flashed starting-caliber tools with Detroit. In New York, he was trying to revive his NFL career.

Jets placed CB Aaron Berry (hamstring) on season-ending injured reserve.

Berry appeared in seven games for the Jets after being signed on the first day of October. He recorded just two tackles while playing mostly on special teams for New York. Berry is under contract for a reasonable $650,000 in 2013.

Jets CB Aaron Berry (hamstring) will be out 2-3 weeks.

Berry pulled his hamstring during last week's win over the Jaguars. He's now a candidate for injured reserve, leaving Ellis Lankster and Josh Bush as backups to starting corners Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson.

Jets signed CB Aaron Berry to a two-year contract.

Berry's suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy ended a week ago. The former Lion will give the Jets much-needed depth in the secondary after converted RB Joe McKnight actually took snaps at corner in Week 4. Although he has myriad off-field issues, Berry is a talented enough cover man that we wouldn't be surprised if he were starting over Kyle Wilson within a couple of weeks.

Free agent CB Aaron Berry visited the Jets on Friday.

Per ESPN New York, the Jets also worked out Chris Carr, Dante Hughes and Darrin Walls. It's Berry's first visit since the Lions cut him loose in July following his second arrest in one month. Berry's three-game suspension is over, so he could theoretically play for the Jets as early as Sunday. Berry isn't exactly a lock-down corner, has had shoulder issues and is obviously a head-case. He'd still be a far better depth option for the Darrelle Revis-less Jets than converted RB Joe McKnight, however. Berry has reportedly also worked out for the Dolphins.

NFL suspended free agent CB Aaron Berry three games for violating the league's personal conduct policy.

Berry will not appeal. Berry can serve the suspension while a free agent, so he'll be eligible for reinstatement in Week 4. Berry was released by the Lions on July 23 following his second arrest in less than a month. He was busted for DUI on June 26 and accused of pointing a loaded gun at three different people on July 21. He has since entered the league's substance abuse program. In line to start for the Lions before being consumed by his off-the-field issues, Berry should draw interest once his suspension is up, if not before.

Former Lions CB Aaron Berry passed through waivers unclaimed.

Berry was working on a minimum salary, so it says quite a bit about his reputation around the NFL that he went unclaimed when the cost to claim him would have been so cheap. Berry was busted for DUI and three counts of assault this offseason. He was caught pointing a loaded gun at three individuals in July.

Free agent CB Aaron Berry will enter the NFL's Substance Abuse Program.

Berry made the disclosure in a Monday statement, where he said "words cannot describe how embarrassed I am right now" following his second arrest in less than 30 days. Berry was accused of pointing a loaded gun at three people over the weekend at around 3AM in a bar district. We suspect Berry will get another shot in the NFL, but there will be no frenzy to sign him for 2012.

Lions waived RCB Aaron Berry.

A franchise beleaguered by off-field issues had enough of Berry's antics. He was busted for DUI on June 26 and arrested again Saturday night after reportedly pointing a firearm at three different people. The firearm was loaded, according to police. Berry was penciled in as the Lions' starting right corner, a job for which Alphonso Smith, Dwight Bentley and Jacob Lacey will now battle. It's a blow to the Lions' secondary.

Lions RCB Aaron Berry was arrested Saturday on three counts of simple assault.

That's seven offseason arrests for the Lions and Berry has been responsible for two, both in the last 30 days. After a June 26 drunken driving arrest, Berry reportedly pointed a firearm at three different people last night. He's surely facing league discipline and it's fair to wonder if his roster spot is in jeopardy considering Detroit spent three draft picks on the position in April.
