Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon, selected in the second round of last week’s supplemental draft, has already signed his first deal, a four-year contract worth $5.3 million with $3.8 million guaranteed.
The quick turnaround for Gordon’s deal comes only a few days after it was reported that he allegedly failed three drug tests while in college. Gordon has admitted to failing two tests, but not a third (he was also given a drug test before the supplemental draft and passed).
With Gordon’s signing, quarterback Brandon Weeden and running back Trent Richardson remain the only two unsigned players from this year’s draft class. General manager Tom Heckert has said that he expects to see both in camp on time, though.
Rookies will report to training camp on July 24th and begin practicing July 25th. The full training camp will begin on July 28th.
