The Browns are trading for Dolphins receiver Davone Bess, agent Kenny Zuckerman confirmed to PFT on Friday night, calling it a “done deal.”
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and ESPN’s Adam Schefter previously reported the completion of the Bess trade.
Official terms of the trade are not yet known, but Schefter reported the Browns and Dolphins will switch fourth-round picks as well as selections in another round.
Bess, 27, caught 61 passes for 778 yards and one TDs in 13 games (all starts) for Miami in 2013. He joins a Cleveland receiving corps featuring the youthful Josh Gordon and Greg Little.
In the 5-10, 193-pound Bess, the Browns get a quick, productive, veteran pass catcher who’s racked up 321 receptions in five NFL seasons. He could add a nice dose of dependability and consistency to a passing game that has needed it after depending so heavily on younger receivers in recent years.
