Richardson, Browns agree to $20.5 million deal

One down and one to go for the Cleveland Browns in terms of getting their first-round picks under contract.

The Browns worked out a contract for fourth overall pick Trent Richardson late Monday night, agreeing to a $20.5 million deal with the former Alabama running back. The contract includes a $13.3 million signing bonus, says the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Richardson's contract is fully guaranteed, and according to the report, contains no offset language, which the Browns had originally wanted.

Now, the Browns can turn their attention to finalizing a deal with 22nd overall pick Brandon Weeden, who remains unsigned, and is the frontrunner to win the starting quarterback job in Cleveland.
