The Browns announced that they have re-signed defensive lineman Jamie Meder. Meder was a restricted free agent who was tendered at the lowest level this offseason. Per the terms of the tender, Meder will earn $1.907MM in 2018.
Meder, 26, first entered the league with the Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of Ashland in 2014. He found his way to the Browns in 2015 and has been with the team ever since. In 2016, he started most of the season on a thinned out Browns defensive line.
Last year, he appeared in ten games (two starts) for the Browns before landing on IR with an ankle sprain. In a limited sample of 178 snaps, the advanced metrics at Pro Football Focus gave him an average grade with a 74.8 overall score.
