Browns sign rookie Terrance West to $2.796 million deal

The Cleveland Browns have signed third-round running back Terrance West to a four-year, $2.796 million contract.

The deal includes a $527,400 signing bonus.

West was selected 94th overall after the Browns traded up to the San Francisco 49ers' spot.

West ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

The 5-foot-9, 230-pound Baltimore native rushed for 2,509 yards and 42 touchdowns last season at Towson before declaring for the NFL draft following his junior year.

He finished with 4,854 career rushing yards and 86 touchdowns.

West is expected to split time at the tailback position with veteran Ben Tate.
