CLEVELAND (AP) - A person familiar with the negotiations says the Cleveland Browns have signed rookie running back Trent Richardson to a four-year, $20.5 million contract.
The sides completed the deal, which includes a $13.3 million signing bonus, on Monday night said the person who spoke to the Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the Browns haven't announced the signing.
With Richardson under contract, the Browns will now focus on getting a deal done with rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden, who wants all four years guaranteed.
The Browns traded up in April's draft to select Richardson with the No. 3 pick. The former Alabama star will report to training camp Tuesday and will be on the field Wednesday with Cleveland's other first-year players and some select veterans.
