The Browns have agreed to terms with former Falcon Austin Hooper on a deal that will make him the highest-paid tight end in NFL history. The 25-year-old out of Stanford caught 75 passes for 787 yards and six touchdowns last season. His new contract is set to usurp Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce's five-year, $46.8 million deal, and Zach Ertz's five-year, $42.5 million contract with the Eagles. The MMQB’s Conor Orr breaks down how Hooper’s addition will benefit Browns QB Baker Mayfield.
