Free-agent defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson intends to sign with the Cleveland Browns at the start of the signing period on Wednesday, reports ESPN.com's Adam Schefter. His expected arrival will give the Browns an impressive defensive line that features Richardson, Olivier Vernon, Myles Garrett, and Larry Ogunjobi. The Browns have the No. 17 overall pick and many experts had the team focused on adding a tackle in that spot from what's considered a deep class. The Browns need a wide receiver who can stretch the defence and there are some highly regarded players who will be available. He played his first four seasons for the Jets before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks in 2017. His new contract will reportedly pay him up to $36 million according to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport. He appeared in all 16 games last season, racking up a total of 49 tackles (six for a loss), 16 quarterback hits, and 4.5 sacks.
