CLEVELAND (AP) — Browns general manager John Dorsey has built a fearsome front on defense.One week after acquiring end Olivier Vernon in a trade http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-kaleb-mcgary-jersey , Cleveland added an inside presence to its line by agreeing with free agent tackle Sheldon Richardson on a three-year, $39 million contract, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press on Tuesday.Richardson, who has played with three other teams since 2013 and been suspended twice by the NFL, will receive $21.5 million guaranteed, said the person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because league rules prohibit teams from announcing signings until 4 p.m. EDT Wednesday.ESPN first reported the agreement.The Browns have also decided to bring back wide receiver Breshad Perriman, who has agreed to a one-year Kendall Sheffield Jersey , $4 million deal for next season, the person said. Perriman revived his career with Cleveland last season after being released by Baltimore.The imminent signing of the 28-year-old Richardson gives the Browns a potentially menacing front four as he’ll play alongside Pro Bowl end Myles Garrett, who had 13 ½ sacks last season and has 20 in 27 career games.Vernon, who didn’t live up to expectations the past few seasons, gives Cleveland another threat off the edge, and Larry Ogunjobi emerged last season as a dependable run stopper.Cleveland’s defense ranked No. 30 overall last season and had 37 sacks, and Dorsey has made upgrading the front seven an offseason priority.He’s done it, and Richardson’s addition will give Dorsey more flexibility heading into next month’s draft. The Browns have the No. 17 overall pick and many experts had the team focused on adding a tackle in that spot from what’s considered a deep class.It’s possible Dorsey will use the selection — Cleveland currently has 10 picks in 2019 — to get another playmaker for quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Browns need a wide receiver who can stretch the defense and there are some highly regarded players who will be available.Another possibility is through trade http://www.falconsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-john-cominsky-jersey , and speculation surrounding New York Giants star Odell Beckham Jr. and the Browns won’t go away. Dorsey has a good rapport with Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who has repeatedly said he didn’t sign Beckham to a five-year, $90 million extension last August to trade him.Beckham teamed with Browns receiver Jarvis Landry at LSU and the two have worked out in the past with Mayfield.In the meantime, Perriman gives Mayfield another target and a player with whom he has built a connection. A first-round pick in 2015, Perriman was a bust with the Ravens and they cut him before last season.He signed with the Browns in October after a rash of injuries ruined Cleveland’s depth and was a pleasant surprise, finishing with 16 receptions for 340 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. He expressed his desire to stay with the Browns and the team and agent struck a deal before he was set to hit the open market.With Perriman, Landry and Antonio Callaway, the Browns may have enough to dissuade them from giving up what it might take to land Beckham.Richardson will help the Browns get to the quarterback and plug the middle. The 6-foot-3 Qadree Ollison Jersey , 295-pounder spent last season with Minnesota, where he had 49 tackles and 4 ½ sacks in 16 games. In six seasons as a pro, he has 23 ½ sacks and 195 tackles in 87 games.Richardson was the AP’s Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2013.While talented, he has also run into some trouble.Richardson was suspended for the Jets’ first four games in 2015 season for violating the substance-abuse policy for testing positive for marijuana. The league also suspended him for the first game in 2016 under its personal-conduct policy after he tried to outrun police in St. Louis, driving his Bentley at 143 mph before being stopped.NOTES:The Browns re-signed DL Carl Davis, who joined the team via waivers from Baltimore during final roster cuts last summer and appeared in five games. A third-round pick in 2015, Davis has appeared in 33 career games with 12 starts. The head of one of the nation’s largest fish conservation groups says Fiat Chrysler’s Super Bowl ads ”glorified” the destruction of aquatic habitat in an apparent attempt to appeal to off-road thrill-seekers.

It’s the second time ads by the automaker have drawn complaints since the Feb. 4 game.

Trout Unlimited President and CEO Chris Wood said Wednesday that one ad gave the impression a Jeep Cherokee was splashing down the middle of a wild streambed.

Fiat Chrysler is defending the ads but says there are no plans to run them again. It says the spot with the Cherokee was shot on a flooded county road and another with a Jeep Wrangler was filmed in a man-made lake with a man-made waterfall on private land.

Wood said many of his group’s 300,000 members and supporters own Jeeps Marquise Brown Jersey , but the images were upsetting.

”Fish are tough and resilient critters, but they don’t do well with several-thousand-pound vehicles driving over their spawning grounds, tearing up the gravel where they lay eggs,” he said. ”Why someone would want to put out the idea that you should buy a Jeep so you could drive it up a creek is incomprehensible to me.”

The Reno Gazette-Journal first reported the ad flap last week. Pam Harrington, Trout Unlimited’s Nevada field coordinator, told the newspaper she was upset because she’s worked with ATV clubs in Idaho repairing damage caused by irresponsible drivers.

Stream habitat improvements are part of the decadeslong efforts to protect endangered salmon in the Pacific Northwest, where research shows riverbank disturbances and sedimentation chokes off fish eggs.

Wood said he didn’t learn until this week that much of his membership was upset over the Jeep ads. He said he had already written a personal letter of complaint Feb. 6 to Fiat Chrysler CEO and Chairman Sergio Marchionne after Wood’s son noticed the ad during the game.

The automaker also came under fire last week for another Super Bowl ad featuring a Ram pickup set against audio of ”The Drum Major Instinct” sermon delivered by Martin Luther King Jr. 50 years ago.

The 60-second spot included images of the truck with people helping others and hugging loved ones. Critics said it omitted King’s words in the same speech guarding against advertisers exploiting consumers, including when the civil rights icon said http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jaylon-ferguson-jersey , ”In order to make your neighbors envious you must drive this type of car. … And you know, before you know it, you’re just buying that stuff. That’s the way advertisers do it.”

A company spokeswoman said that ad ”was selling the message of serving in your community.”

Wood, who worked as chief spokesman for the U.S. Forest Service under the Clinton administration before joining Trout Unlimited in 2001, said Fiat Chrysler apparently ”got some bad marketing advice” on the Jeep campaign.

He said there are plans to connect with a Jeep branch representative for a ”broader conversation.”

”Hopefully something good will come of this, and we can begin a dialogue with Jeep to promote smart use of off-road vehicles as well as conservation of natural resources,” Wood said.
