The Browns have hammered out a four-year, $1.96 million contract with rookie fifth-round safety Larry Asante, a league source confirmed. The deal, first reported by FOX Sports, includes a signing bonus of roughly $170,000, as well as the standard base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000 and $575,000 and a fourth-year escalator clause. By all accounts, Asante has had a strong offseason and is competing for a starting job along with second-round safety T.J. Ward. Asante played at Nebraska and is regarded as a hard hitter.
