Browns Reach Deals With DT Billy Winn, OT Mitchell Schwartz

According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cleveland Browns reached deals with two more draft picks on Friday: defensive tackle Billy Winn and offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz. Winn, a sixth-round draft choice, could quickly leap into a starting role with the injury to Phil Taylor and the uncertainty of John Hughes' potential. Per Ulrich, Winn "played defensive tackle and lined up as a three-technique this morning during the first practice of the Browns’ rookie minicamp."

Contract details were provided for Schwartz, a second-round draft choice slated to start at right tackle:

The Browns have signed rookie offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz to a four-year deal worth $5.17 million, a league source told the Beacon Journal tonight.

Ulrich noted that Schwartz worked at starting right tackle during the first two practices of rookie minicamp.

The Browns have not reached deals with all of their draft picks yet, including first rounders Trent Richardson and Brandon Weeden. With the new CBA outlining rookie contract requirements last year, though, there probably shouldn't be much fear of a holdout taking place.
