CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The "Pierogi Prince of Parma" is sticking around in Berea for a little while longer. The Browns signed defensive lineman Jamie Meder, who earned his nickname from left tackle Joe Thomas, the team announced on Tuesday.

Meder was an exclusive rights free agent, meaning he was only able to negotiate with the Browns.

Meder, who attended Valley Forge High School in Parma Heights, has appeared in 33 games, including 15 starts since joining the Browns in 2014. Meder was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Baltimore Ravens.

Thomas gave Meder the nickname after he blocked a potential game-tying field goal attempt during the Browns' Christmas Eve victory over the Chargers, the team's only win of the season. Meder was named AFC Special Teams Player of Week for his efforts.
