Ivy Glad to be Back in Front of the Pound

Corey Ivy’s NFL success story has led him back to the Browns.

Ivy broke into professional football as undrafted rookie in 1999 with the Patriots. After being released he played in NFL Europe the following spring, then signed with the Browns in time for training camp in 2000.

He impressed the Browns that summer with his hustle and fearless play but didn’t make the roster, and in 2001 he played in the XFL. He made his way back to the NFL that fall and made his regular-season debut with Tampa Bay. In 2002, he played in every game for a Bucs team that won the Super Bowl and remained with Tampa Bay through 2004.

Ivy played for the Rams in 2005 before signing with Baltimore, where he spent the last three seasons. Ivy shined as a special-teamer, nickel back and part-time starter and now comes back to Cleveland figuring to play the same roles while tutoring the team’s young cornerbacks.

“I’ve been fortunate to be on some great defenses,” Ivy said. “I think I can bring a lot of things back here – attitude, tenacity, leadership.”
