3 draft picks quickly sign contracts

The Browns got right down to business.

Less than a week after the NFL Draft, the team signed three of its selections to contracts Thursday.

Sheldrick Redwine, a fourth-round safety from Miami; Drew Drew Forbes, a sixth-round offensive lineman from Southeast Missouri State; and Donnie Lewis Jr., a seventh-round cornerback from Tulane, quickly signed their four-year rookie contracts.

Rookie minicamp runs Friday through Sunday, and the players reported Thursday.


The rest of the draft class remained unsigned: second-round cornerback Greedy Williams, third-round linebacker Sione Takitaki, fifth-round linebacker Mack Wilson and fifth-round kicker Austin Seibert.
