- Daniel Jeremiah reports that the Browns signed Bess to a three-year deal worth close to $10 million.
- Ian Rapoport adds that Bess’ new contract includes incentives.
- Jensen adds that there are “several teams in the mix” for Bess and with “mid-round picks” being discussed as compensation for the slot receiver.
- Tony Pauline reports that a source has informed him that there’s a “99.9 percent” chance that Bess is dealt to the Browns for mid-round picks.
- Barry Jackson reports that the Dolphins are looking for a fourth- or fifth-round pick in exchange for Bess.
Recent reports have mentioned that the Dolphins could be getting close to reaching an agreement with the Chiefs for LT Branden Albert, so this could be a move to free up some additional cap space seeing as they’ll have to lock him up long-term once a trade is agreed upon.
On top of that, Miami has signed multiple receivers this offseason and Bess appears to be no longer a part of their offensive plans. Cleveland needs all the help they can get a receiver, so I’m sure they serious as long as Miami’s asking price is reasonable.
