It doesn’t sound like the ink is dry just yet, but as long as they’ve got something worked out, I can wait another day for it to be announced by the team. Rookies are due to report Wednesday, so there will even be travel time should Richardson not already be in Cleveland.
Now on to Weeden. The only person who doesn’t want Weeden to get signed yesterday is (probably) Colt McCoy.
Update. Chris Mortensen is reporting the numbers are finalized with $20.4 million total with a $13.6 million signing bonus.
Trent Richardson deal done, per sources. 4 yrs $20.4 mill fully guaranteed. $13.6 sign bonus.
