How’s that for timing?
An hour after we headlined Gilbert was still unsigned as camp opened for rookies, Chris Mortensen reports that the Browns and Gilbert have come to terms on his deal-

Gilbert’s signing means that all the Browns rookies are signed, and should be in camp today. The exception could be Joel Bitonio, who was hurt in OTAs, but the extent of the injury isn’t known.
The Browns did claim OL Nick McDonald off waivers from the Chargers yesterday, but McDonald does have a broken wrist.
