Browns WR Josh Gordon Signs Rookie Contract

It's not often that in July, a team goes from not having two of their rookies under contract to not having three of their rookies under contract. On Monday, the Cleveland Browns lowered that number to two again. As first reported by Adam Caplan on The Sideline View, the Cleveland Browns signed wide receiver Josh Gordon less than a week after taking him with a second-round pick in the supplemental draft. I speculated on what Gordon's contract would be in last week's mailbag session, and Caplan pretty much confirmed the numbers:

The Cleveland Browns and rookie WR Josh Gordon have agreed on a four-year contract, an NFL source confirmed. Gordon agreed to a deal worth just over $5.3 million with $3.8 million guaranteed.

The numbers are almost identical to what wide receiver Brian Quick, selected with the 33rd pick in April's draft, received. NFL.com implies that Gordon would be valued as the No. 34 pick since he was taken in that slot during the supplemental draft.
