NFL Rumors: Cleveland Browns sign Nate Burleson

After going through a handful of rumored offers, free agent wide receiver Nate Burleson has finally decided on a team – the Cleveland Browns.

The Miami Dolphins were said to be pushing hard to sign the veteran wideout, but in the end Burleson picked the Browns and signed a one-year deal on Sunday evening according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Browns are hoping that new receiver Nate Burleson is better at catching passes than he is at catching pizzas.The Browns have agreed to terms on a deal with the 12th-year pro, the club announced. His agent Ken Sarnoff told cleveland.com it’s a one-year deal, but terms were not available.

Burleson brings with him good hands so he’ll make a solid possession receiver for the Browns moving forward, but he doesn’t bring much to the table in regards to playmaking ability. That said, on a one year deal, there’s nothing to dislike about the contract for the Browns given there is no commitment.

The 33-year-old will likely fall into the third or fourth receiver role this season.
