Browns placed rookie LB Emmanuel Acho on injured reserve, ending his season.

Browns agreed to terms with sixth-round LB Emmanuel Acho on a four-year contract.

The brother of Cardinals LB Sam Acho, Emmanuel was a highly productive player his final two years at Texas, but has a tendency to get swallowed up by bigger linemen. Acho has practiced at middle linebacker during Browns rookie minicamp, but will likely focus on special teams if he makes Cleveland's roster.

Browns selected Texas LB Emmanuel Acho with the No. 204 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A different player than his brother Sam of Cardinals, Emmanuel Acho is an instinctual 4-3 linebacker that has little wasted movements when playing the run or short zones in coverage. However, too often he gets engulfed at the second level and has difficulties fighting through those blocks. Acho offers nice depth at the linebacker position and a great work ethic.
