And then there was one.

The Cleveland Browns signed TE David Njoku on Thursday, making the announcement right after the end of minicamp. The team has now signed nine members of their ten-man draft class, with the only player left being SS Jabrill Peppers.

Taken in the 1st round at No. 29 overall, Njoku’s contract will be worth about $9.525 million, with a $5.068 million signing bonus over four years, according to OverTheCap's pre-determined draft chart. His cap hit in 2017 will be roughly $1.732 million.

Njoku was the team's 3rd player selected in the draft, their third of three picks in the first round, and their only tight end selected. He is 6-4, 246-pounds and played college football at Miami. Njoku will wear No. 85 with the Browns.
