Source: Browns sign John Hughes to four-year, $14.4 million deal

The Cleveland Browns have signed defensive lineman John Hughes to a four-year, $14.4 million contract extension that includes a $2.5 million signing bonus and $3.56 million guaranteed, according to a league source. The deal maxes out at $15 million. "It's an amazing feeling," Hughes said. "For the Cleveland Browns to have the faith in me and believe in me to sign me a year early, it's just a great feeling." Hughes missed 11 games last season with a knee injury, but had 68 tackles and four sacks in 2012 and 2013. He had 17 tackles last season.
