The Cleveland Browns signed CB Howard Wilson on Wednesday. He is among the first three players of the team’s ten-person draft class to be signed.

Taken in the 4th round at No. 126 overall, Wilson's contract will be worth about $3.003 million, with a $603,144 signing bonus over four years, according to OverTheCap's pre-determined draft chart. His cap hit in 2017 will be roughly $615,786, which is the fourth highest on the team at cornerback behind Joe Haden, Jamar Taylor, Marcus Burley. The salary for Briean Boddy-Calhoun comes cheaper, having been an undrafted free agent a year ago.

Wilson was the team's 6th player selected in the draft, their only cornerback picked, and their only fourth-round pick. He is 6-0, 184-pounds and played college football at Houston. Wilson will wear No. 35 with the Browns.
