Although they have been allowed to participate in organized team activities and minicamp, in order to participate in training camp, first-round picks Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson will need to agree to terms on a contract from the Cleveland Browns. There is still plenty of time to do that since training camp is not until late July, but the sooner, the better. Today, in separate interviews, both expressed their confidence in a deal being reached.

Here is what Weeden said, via the Akron Beacon Journal:

"I’m ready to sign it," said Weeden. "I’m not gonna miss any time. I’m gonna sign before [training] camp. It’s just nitpick stuff, but we’ll get it done. I’ll get it done."

Richardson was asked about his deal on 92.3 The Fan:

"As far as the business side I think it’s pretty much wrapped up," Richardson said of the status of contract talks. "I think everything is pretty much done. There’s just some language in there that they have to get done but as far as business-wise it’s pretty much done."

The latter article also states that Richardson is waiting for Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III to sign their deals before he signs his.
