Browns running back Trent Richardson has said that he wants to wait to sign his contract until the two players drafted in front of him — Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III — sign theirs.
Both have now signed. So Richardson is next, right?
Maybe not. Per a source with knowledge of the negotiations, the Browns and Richardson aren’t involved in serious talks at this point.
The issue of offset language likely will be a sticking point, given that both Luck and Griffin managed to get contracts with guarantees that won’t be reduced if they’re cut and if they sign with new teams.
