The Cleveland Browns signed LB Tony Fields II on Thursday. He is among the first three players of the team’s eight-person draft class to be signed.

Taken in the 5th round at No. 153 overall, Fields’ contract will be worth about $3.810 million, with a $329,752 signing bonus over four years, according to OverTheCap’s pre-determined draft chart. His cap hit in 2021 will be roughly $742,438, which puts him behind other linebackers on the team in Takkarist McKinley, Anthony Walker, Sione Takitaki, Jacob Phillips, Malcolm Smith, and Mack Wilson. Once JOK signs, he’ll obviously be behind him too.

Fields was the team’s sixth player selected in the draft and one of two linebackers picked. He is 6-1, 220 pounds and played college football at West Virginia. Fields will wear No. 42 with the Browns.
