Browns Trade Colinet Back to Vikings
BEREA, Ohio (AP) _ The Cleveland Browns traded Stalin Colinet, who started all 16 games last year on the defensive line, back to the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday for a future draft pick.
Colinet, picked up by Cleveland in a 1999 trade with Minnesota for defensive tackle Jerry Ball, had his playing time significantly reduced this year. He has played in all five games, but registered four tackles and no sacks.
The Browns also signed defensive tackle Cedrick Killings, who was waived by the San Francisco 49ers in August. The 6-foot-2, 290 pound Killings played in 14 games last year for San Francisco, getting three sacks.
Cleveland also waived defensive back Perry Phenix and claimed defensive back Brandon Jennings off waivers Tuesday. Jennings played in two games for the Oakland Raiders last year as a rookie free agent, but was inactive for two games this year before being waived.
