By Jay Skurski

Buffalo native Naaman Roosevelt is back in the NFL.

The Cleveland Browns announced today they've signed the former Bills receiver, who starred for both the University at Buffalo and St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute.

Roosevelt, 26, spent his first two seasons with his hometown team, recording 25 catches for 396 yards and one touchdown in 16 games over the 2010-11 seasons. He was cut by the Bills prior to the start of the 2012 season.

A former undrafted free agent, Roosevelt holds UB records for catches (268), receiving yards (3,551), touchdown catches (28) and all-purpose yardage (5,341). He won the Connolly Cup in 2005 with the Marauders, throwing for a Western New York record 35 touchdowns in leading St. Joe's to a 9-1 record and the No. 1 ranking in The Buffalo News large school poll.
