Nate Burleson will stay in the Midwest, but the veteran wide receiver will be switching conferences.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday that the pass-catcher has agreed to terms with the Cleveland Browns on a one-year contract, according to a source involved. The team later confirmed the deal.
The Browns enjoyed a busy but fruitful free agency period, with former Bengals wide receiver Andrew Hawkins among their key acquisitions. There is no guarantee Burleson will make the team, but expect the 32-year-old to compete for a slice of playing time -- namely what would appear to be Greg Little's No. 3 receiver spot.
