The Cleveland Browns signed CB Trey Caldwell on Friday, along with five other rookies. Taken in the 5th round at No. 173 overall, Caldwell's contract will be worth about $2.254 million, with a $184,000 signing bonus over four years, according to OverTheCap's pre-determined draft chart. His cap hit in 2016 will be roughly $496,000.

Caldwell was the team's 13th player selected in the draft, their only cornerback picked, and the last of four fifth-round picks. Caldwell is 5-9, 185-pounds and played college football at Louisiana-Monroe. He will wear No. 31 with the Browns. On the first day of rookie minicamp, Caldwell discussed his mindset of wanting to be a starter:

"I always have the mindset that I am trying to take a spot. I am trying to make something out for myself. I want to be a starter. I’ve just got to put in the effort and learn from the vets. Learn from Joe Haden – he’s an All-Pro corner. It’s kind of surreal to think about that – I am one of his teammates now. I’ve just got to learn from the vets, take advantage of this opportunity and do my best."
