The organization here has been tremendous. I have only been here a short amount of time and it already feels like home. I’m just really excited. It’s been a long process to get to this point and it’s just really exciting to finally be here. I am excited to be a Cleveland Brown and be a part of something special. It’s been a great experience I have had with the Ravens and I am very blessed to be able to play with that team. I am really hoping to bring a lot of those things that I learned from that organization, that team and those teammates I had and bring those things I learned here. I’m just really excited to get moving and get working. [...] A number of reasons [why I picked the Browns]. I would say the biggest was just the excitement that was surrounding this organization. I wanted to come to a team that was excited about me and I was excited about them. It was a mutual thing. I really felt like that was the biggest turning point – just the excitement was there and I felt strongly about being a part of something that I can help and make a team better. – Newly signed linebacker Paul Kruger, Wednesday, on why he chose the Cleveland Browns after playing with division rival Baltimore Ravens. Kruger added that this move makes him feel that he can now “step out of the shadows” of his former teammates and continue working on improving his play as an every down linebacker. “I think I was deemed as a pass rusher only.  I think I will be able to show people that I can be affective on every down,” Kruger said.
