Travis Wilson in the Fold

The Cleveland Browns third-round pick was signed and in camp working with the team on Saturday. Fred Greetham was there and talked to Travis about getting to work and catching up with his teammates...

Berea – Third-round draft choice Travis Wilson ended his three day holdout by signing a four year contract with the Browns on Friday. Wilson was happy to be on the field.
 
"I missed a couple of days of practice, but I can make those up quickly," he said. "I wanted to be out on the field earlier, but this is the business side of football."
 
Wilson indicated that Braylon Edwards urged him to get in as soon as possible. Last year, Edwards held out for two weeks and it took him until the middle of the season before he was inserted into the lineup.
 
Ironically, due to Edwards' recovery from a torn ACL injury, Wilson has an opportunity to crack the starting lineup if Edwards is unable to return by the start of the season.
 
"He got in," Romeo Crennel said. "He's behind and he has a lot of work to do to catch up."
 
Wilson said he's glad to get the business behind him and get on to the business of football.
 
"I'm happy with the deal," Wilson said. "That's what I hired my agent to do and he got it done."
 
Wilson (6-1, 213 pounds) was the 78th overall selection of the 2006 NFL Draft out of Oklahoma. On draft day, he proclaimed himself the ‘best receiver in the draft.'
 
Wilson, 22, had 105 receptions in his career for 1,315 yards and 17 touchdowns.
