Source: Cleveland Browns Sign RB Trent Richardson

According to a person close to the contract negotiations between the Cleveland Browns and running back Trent Richardson, the two sides have come to an agreement on a four-year, $20.5 million contract. The deal also includes a $13.3 million signing bonus.

The biggest hang-up in the contract – offset language, which saves the Browns money in the event that Richardson is released and signs with another team before his current deal is up – has apparently been solved (i.e. it’s not in there at all) as well.

With rookies set to report today, the only player yet to be signed is quarterback Brandon Weeden. He is reportedly looking to get a fourth year guaranteed in his contract, but a long holdout shouldn’t be expected.
