Brandon Weeden Comes To Terms With Cleveland Browns, According To Reports

According to several reports, the Cleveland Browns have come to terms on a contractual agreement with first-round draft pick, Brandon Weeden. The quarterback was selected with the with the No. 22 overall pick in April's Draft. Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer first tweeted that the agreement, which was expected at some point Tuesday, had been finalized:

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Weeden and the Browns agreed to a four-year contract worth around $8.1 million. The one remaining issue in the contract talks centered around the guarantee of the fourth year of Weeden's deal. Picks toward the end of the 1st Round, where Weeden was selected, typically do not receive a guarantee in the fourth year. According to Adam Caplan, that year will be partially guaranteed:

The deal comes a day after the team came to terms on an agreement with running back Trent Richardson, whom the Browns selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the same draft class as Weeden. With rookies and some veterans reporting in Berea on Wednesday, everyone who's expected should now be signed and in camp.
