The Cleveland Browns wrapped up No. 3 overall pick Trent Richardson’s rookie deal late Monday, and Tuesday looks like it’ll bring a contract for fellow first-rounder Brandon Weeden.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Browns are “on the verge” of finalizing Weeden’s rookie contract. The sides reportedly spoke into the night on Monday and hope to put on finishing touches today.
Weeden has been hoping for a fully-guaranteed four-year contract. The Browns preferred to guarantee the first three seasons of the deal. In all likelihood, they’ll meet in the middle.
Weeden was the 22nd overall pick in April’s draft.
