Browns Get Rookies John Hughes, Trevin Wade Signed To Four-Year Deals

It has already been reported that the Cleveland Browns are close to coming to terms with running back Trent Richardson on a new contract. Richardson was the team's first pick in the 2012 NFL Draft - the No. 3 overall pick after the Browns moved up one spot in a deal with the Minnesota Vikings. On top of that, they've already signed seventh-round pick fullback Brad Smelley and fourth-round pick linebacker James-Michael Johnson.

Now, you can add two more players to that list, according to Mary Kay Cabot on Twitter. She Tweeted Thursday afternoon that the Browns have just signed John Hughes, a defensive tackle the team took in the third-round, and cornerback Trevin Wade, one of the team's selections in the seventh round.

Both deals are for four-years, as is the case for everyone this year. That leaves quarterback and first-round draftee Brandon Weeden, offensive tackle and second-round draft pick Mitchell Schwartz, wide receiver and fourth-round draftee Travis Benjamin, offensive guard and fifth-round draft pick Ryan Miller, outside linebacker and sixth-round draft pick Emmanuel Acho and defensive tackle and sixth-round draft pick Billy Winn still unsigned.
