Cleveland Browns sign first-round pick Justin Gilbert

Wednesday July 23rd, 2014

The Cleveland Browns agreed to terms with first-round pick Justin Gilbert three days before the team opens training camp on July 26. ESPN's Chris Mortensen was the first to report the agreement. 

The four-year deal is a fully-guaranteed $12,833,502 and includes a $7,653,465 signing bonus.

Cleveland took the six-foot, 202-pound cornerback out of Oklahoma State with the No. 8 pick in May's draft. He is expected to compete for the starting job opposite second-team All-Pro Joe Haden. Haden signed a new contract of his own in May, which will run through the 2019 season. 

Gilbert was one of two remaining first-rounders -- along with Tennessee Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan -- who had yet to sign.
