CLEVELAND — With wads of money to spend, the Browns didn’t waste any time shoving millions into two defensive holes they created this winter.

During the furious first few hours of free agency Tuesday, the team agreed to terms with strong safety Donte Whitner, a Cleveland native who can’t wait to play in his hometown.

“I must now embark on my intended journey and become a Cleveland Brown,” Whitner wrote on his Twitter account. “A place that’s very dear to my heart!”

Also, the Browns reportedly struck a deal with inside linebacker Karlos Dansby, who resurrected his career last season in his second stint with Arizona.

The team has not made any announcements.

Knights belt Green Bears in Regionals

BOWLING GREEN – Giving up eight inches defensively, it might have been easy to assume that Crestview senior Cam Etzler would have difficulty guarding Ottawa Hills’ 6-7 senior Geoff Beans.

Beans, the Northwest District Division IV Player of the Year, came in averaging better than 18 points per game and will be playing Division I college basketball next season.

With Crestview’s frontcourt of Tyson Bolenbaugh and Damian Helm drawing assignments against a 6-9 center and a 6-7 wing, the decision to use Etzler on Beans might have seemed unconventional but it may have been the most brilliant move that Crestview head coach Jeremy Best has made all season.

Beans was held without a field goal as the Knights used a strong fourth quarter to pull away with a 49-26 final in the Division IV regional semifinal at the Stroh Center on the campus of Bowling Green State University.
