Isaiah Crowell signs tender

Running back Isaiah Crowell signed his one-year contract according to his agency

BEREA, Ohio--Isaiah Crowell has signed his one-year tender with the Browns according to his agency, Universal Sports Management.

The Browns offered the undrafted free agent a second-round tender that will pay him $2.74 million in 2017.

Crowell, 24, rushed for 952 yards last season, including seven touchdowns. He caught 40 passes for 319 yards to give him a total of 1,271 multi-purpose yards.

Crowell will be an unrestricted free agent after the 2017 season if the Browns cannot sign him to a contract extension.  

The Browns added only running back Matthew Dayes during the draft in the seventh-round (252nd overall).

Crowell was absent from the beginning of the Browns off-season program and EVP Sashi Brown was asked about Crowell's status during the recently concluded NFL Draft. It is unclear whether Crowell will take part in the Browns off-season program or will report for the mandatory veteran minicamp in June. 

"Isaiah will come in and sign his tender at the time he deems fit," Brown said.
