RB Trent Richardson Signs Rookie Contract With Cleveland Browns

Cleveland Browns RB Trent Richardson's will make $20.48 million over 4 years.

One down, and one to go.

On the evening before rookies report to Cleveland Browns training camp, running back Trent Richardson, the team's third overall pick in April's draft, has signed his rookie deal. Richardson had previously said that he would sign his rookie deal after the top two picks in the draft signed their contracts, and that's what ended up happening. Pro Football Talk has the details of Richardson's contract, which is worth $20.48 million over 4 years:

The contract pays Richardson a signing bonus of $13.341 million, along with base salaries of $390,000 in 2012, $1.321 million in 2013, $2.252 million in 2014, and $3.184 million in 2015. The contract is fully-guaranteed, with no offset language.

The team's other first-round pick, quarterback Brandon Weeden, has not signed yet.
