CLEVELAND -- John Greco figured hed go to training camp, try to win a starting job and hopefully be rewarded with a new contract. The Browns had other plans. Greco, who made 10 starts at left guard last season after Jason Pinkston contracted blood clots in his lungs, agreed to terms Tuesday on a five-year contract through the 2017 season. Financial terms were not disclosed. "It caught me off guard a little bit," Greco said. "Im thrilled and a bit relieved. Im happy the Browns have value in me." Pressed into the starting lineup when Pinkston fell ill, the versatile Greco did not miss an offensive snap over his first nine starts and solidified one of Clevelands strongest units. The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder was part of a line that helped running back Trent Richardson rush for a franchise rookie record 950 yards and protected rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, who passed for 3,385 yards -- another team rookie mark. Greco is the first veteran entering his final season under contract to receive an extension from the Browns new regime. "One of our goals," said CEO Joe Banner, "is whenever possible to develop and keep our own players. Were glad in this case that it worked out, and was mutually beneficial." Although he has a new deal, Greco isnt guaranteed a starting job by first-year coach Rob Chudzinski. However, Greco showed last year that hes more than competent and is definitely the front runner as camp approaches. During spring practices, Greco rotated with Pinkston and Shaun Lauvao -- last years starter for all 16 games at right guard -- but took more snaps with the first-team offence than his teammates. Greco said winning a starting job "is huge" but he isnt taking anything for granted and promised to work hard to keep the Browns trust. "John is a solid, all-around teammate, on and off the field," Chudzinski said. "He was given an opportunity to play last year and really showed well. Hes respected in the locker room for his approach, consistency and team-first attitude." Greco, 28, spent three seasons with St. Louis, which drafted the Youngstown, Ohio, native in 2008. The Rams won just three games in his first two years before going 7-9 in 2010. Greco senses the Browns are on a similar plane to make a big jump in the win column this season. He noted the Browns were young last season and that Clevelands players have done some growing on and off the field. "Its a completely different feel," he said. "You can tell its ripe for a push to win some games. Thats the mindset and attitude going into camp." ---- NOTES: The Browns also signed free agent WR Naaman Roosevelt, who played 16 games the past three seasons with Buffalo. He has 25 career receptions for 396 yards with one touchdown. Roosevelt will be reunited with former Bills WR David Nelson, who signed as a free agent with the Browns earlier this year. Nelson will start camp on the physically-unable-to-perform list as he recovers from a knee injury that kept him out all of last season. On Monday, Nelson appeared to trip while making a cut on the Browns indoor turf. He was checked by a trainer and continued his workout. ... Banner will meet with the media on Wednesday.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee finally ended its pattern of slow starts.The Volunteers hope that sets the tone for a fast finish.Joshua Dobbs connected with Josh Malone on two of his three touchdown passes and John Kelly scored on a 73-yard run Saturday as Tennessee snapped a three-game skid in a 55-0 blowout of Football Championship Subdivision program Tennessee Tech. The Volunteers produced six touchdowns and one field goal in their first eight possessions and posted their largest margin of victory since a 63-7 triumph over Western Kentucky in 2009.Its something weve harped on all season, Dobbs said of the slow starts. So it was good to come out and play fast at the beginning of the game and then sustain that throughout the first half and throughout the entire game, really.The lopsided victory followed a tumultuous stretch for Tennessee (6-3). The Volunteers fell 24-21 at two-touchdown underdog South Carolina last week, and Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced Monday that leading rusher Jalen Hurd had left the team.Yet Jones insisted after the game that there was no drama inside our building this week even as the Vols bounced back from their lowest point of the season.Instead of feeling sorry for themselves, they came in with a mental focus and mindset to get better and improve, Jones said. I thought our energy was outstanding.Dobbs completed his first 11 passes and ended up 12 of 13 for 183 yards before exiting with about five minutes left in the second quarter.The Vols had been outscored 83-24 in the opening quarter of their first eight games, but they led 21-0 after the first period. Tennessee extended the margin to 28-0 when Dobbs threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings on the opening play of the second quarter.Tennessees first two series ended with touchdown passes of 30 and 43 yards from Dobbs to Malone, who had five catches for a career-high 112 yards. Tennessee reached the end zone on each of its first four drives.They made those big plays early, Tennessee Tech coach Marcus Satterfield said. That really put us in a hole.Kelly made his first career start and ran for 104 yards on jjust seven carries against Tennessee Tech (3-6).dddddddddddd His 73-yard burst through the right side of the line in the first quarter was Tennessees longest run from scrimmage since LaMarcus Cokers 87-yarder against Vanderbilt in 2006.Carlin Fils-aime added two touchdown runs and Marquez Callaway scored on a 62-yard punt return for Tennessee.Tennessee had additional reason to celebrate Saturday because No. 10 Florida lost 31-10 at Arkansas. The Vols can capture their first SEC East title since 2007 if they win out and Florida loses at least one more conference game.Thats one of the most spirited celebrations weve had in our locker room, Jones said. I think thats a by-product and thats all relative to the investment of everybody in our football program this week.THE TAKEAWAYTennessee Tech: The Golden Eagles controlled the ball for over 41 minutes but still failed to score as they rushed for just 60 yards on 38 carries.Tennessee: Kellys productivity provided evidence that Tennessees rushing attack will withstand the loss of Hurd.Tennessee also finally protected the football. After throwing 11 interceptions and losing nine fumbles in its first eight games, Tennessee didnt commit a single turnover Saturday.UNFAMILIAR NEIGHBORSThe campuses of Tennessee and Tennessee Tech are separated by only about 100 miles, but this marked the first meeting between the two teams since 1951. Tennessee has won all six matchups with Tennessee Tech and has outscored the Golden Eagles 297-20.Tennessee Tech received $475,000 for making the trip from its Cookeville campus to Knoxville for Saturdays game.KEY NUMBERSTennessee Tech has never beaten an FBS team in 31 attempts. ... This was Tennessees largest margin of victory in a shutout since a 65-0 victory over Vanderbilt in 1994.UP NEXTTennessee Tech returns to FCS competition and visits Tennessee State next Saturday.Tennessee hosts Kentucky next Saturday.---More AP college football at www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25.
