Browns sign five restricted free agents, including RB Harrison

CLEVELAND -- Running back Jerome Harrison was one of five restricted free agents to sign one-year tenders with the Cleveland Browns on Monday.

A team spokesman said that Harrison, linebackers D'Qwell Jackson and Matt Roth, safety Abram Elam and fullback Lawrence Vickers signed their deals. The players had until 11:59 p.m. on Monday to sign the tenders, or the team could reduce their base salaries by 10 percent.

All of the players except Roth had a $1.759 million base salary. Roth's is $1.809 million because he has five accrued seasons, instead of four.

Harrison ran for 561 yards in the Browns' final three games. He gained 286 yards -- the third-highest, one-game total in NFL history -- during a Dec. 20 win at Kansas City.
