Reports: Robiskie Inks

Lane Adkins had been telling subscribers that progress on a potential deal with Brian Robiskie was further than had been reported in the mainstream press. Now the Associated Press is reporting a deal is done.

We thought that we were in a good position to break this one, but sometimes we don't get the first call. The Associated Press, however, is reporting that the Browns have signed a contract with Ohio State WR Brian Robiskie.

Lane Adkins has been telling subscribers, alone among the media, that progress in talks were better than what was being reported. Adkins first reported steps being taken on a deal two days ago.

The deal with Robiskie gets all Browns rookies under contract, two days in advance of the team opening its first training camp under new head coach Eric Mangini.

More contract details as we get them. The Browns have been paying a little extra to get their draft picks in. Keep an eye on the OBR's Cap and Contracts Database for the financial details.
