With the rookie's orientation sessions beginning today, the management at least wanted to get their lower picks signed on time. Last night, the Browns signed all of their remaining lower-level draft picks, including defensive lineman Melila Purcell, cornerback Brandon McDonald, and wide receiver Syndric Steptoe to four-year deals. The team still has until Friday to sign cornerback Eric Wright, offensive lineman Joe Thomas, and quarterback Brady Quinn. Ideally, having Thomas and Wright signed would be the best-case scenario, as Quinn would not start the season either way.
Today was also the day for LeCharles Bentley to undergo his physical, and guess what? He passed! Bentley was cleared his morning to return to playing football. Bentley believes that this test was the most important one to pass, meaning any other tests will be passed with ease.
