The Cleveland Browns officially have no more unrestricted free agents on the market, as the New Orleans Saints have reportedly agreed to terms with ILB Craig Robertson:

Earlier today, Robertson posted the following message on his Instagram page:

"I gave it all I had every day, no handouts and I wouldn't change that for anything. Thank you Cleveland for giving me a shot when nobody else would. I knew what it meant to be a Brown but most importantly a brother and a teammate. Thank you, Cleveland"

While the financial details aren't yet available for Robertson's deal, one can imagine that it'll be comparable to what the Browns gave OL Alvin Bailey. That would allow those contracts to cancel each other out for the compensatory picks formula in 2017, which would allow Cleveland to be sitting pretty at the moment with three fourth-round picks and one fifth-round pick.

If the Browns sign Robert Griffin III, he will not impact the team's compensatory picks, since he was cut by the Redskins as opposed to having an expiring contract.
