The Cleveland Browns announced the signing of their third round pick Christian Kirksey. The contract is reportedly a four-year deal worth $3.04 million, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. The 6-foot-2-inch Iowa alum is figured to be in the running for one of the starting inside linebacker jobs.
Kirksey is the second draft choice to sign his contract with the Browns. Pierre Desir of Lindenwood was the first player to sign his rookie contract with the Browns. The 6-foot-1-inch cornerback signed his four-year contract last week. The team has still not signed four of their draft choices including the first rounders, Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert.
