Browns CB Justin Gilbert On Contract: “We’re Working On It”
BEREA (92.3 The Fan) – Cleveland Browns cornerback Justin Gilbert remains the lone member of the team’s draft class that is unsigned.
And he doesn’t seem to be worried about it one bit.
Gilbert remains confident that things will be wrapped up by the time training camp rolls around but spoke with his agent earlier this week but there wasn’t much of an update.
“I have no idea,” Gilbert said of the status of negotiations with the Browns. “We’re still working on it.”
Gilbert, who is one of 4 first round picks that remain unsigned, spoke Friday at the NFL’s Play60 football camp featuring local kids which is part of the league’s Rookie Symposium.
Under the collective bargaining agreement, the financial portions of his deal are pretty set. Gilbert is expected to receive a 4 year deal with a fifth year option worth $12.8 million that includes a signing bonus of approximately $7.65 million.
Gilbert will compete with Buster Skrine for the starting cornerback job opposite of Pr Bowl corner Joe Haden in training camp.
