Immediately after signing his rookie contract, Brandon Weeden revealed how he plans to throw the football in 2012.
Anyone who feared that quarterback Brandon Weeden would hold out of training camp until he got what he wanted can relax. According to reports, the Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms on a 4-year deal worth about $8.1 million with the 22nd overall pick in the draft. The team had signed running back Trent Richardson, the third overall pick in the draft, to a deal last night.
Brandon Weeden's deal is fully guaranteed in 2012-14, and has over 900k guaranteed in '15.

Reports indicated that Weeden was originally hoping that his entire rookie contract would be guaranteed, but he settled for a partial guarantee for his fourth season. Defensive tackle Phil Taylor sought a fully guaranteed contract last year too, but the Browns reached a compromise with him too. The Browns now have all 11 of their rookie draft picks signed. Rookies reported to training camp today, and the first practice for rookies is Wednesday afternoon. Both Weeden and Richardson are expected to be in attendance.
