The new-era Cleveland Browns offense is ready to go.
Rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden agreed to terms on Tuesday according to the Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer, less than a day after No. 3 overall draft pick Trent Richardson signed his deal.
NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, confirmed the deal according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Terms of the contract were not disclosed. However, the 28-year-old quarterback will receive a partial guarantee on the contract's fourth-year.
Weeden was taken No. 22 overall back in April, but his contract was a little more complicated because he's a quarterback.
The Browns are hoping that Weeden is a true franchise signal-caller. Mike Holmgren's legacy as team president likely depends on it. The Browns are expected to hold a quarterback competition in training camp, but they are also expected to announce Weeden is the winner sooner than later. Colt McCoy could be an ex-Brown by Week 1.
Weeden needs as many snaps as he can get with a shaky wideout group to prepare for a season in the toughest defensive division in football.
So, yeah: It's good that he's in camp on time.
