Greedy Williams, the Browns’ top pick in the 2019 draft, signed his four-year contract Tuesday and can now get down to the business of trying to win the starting job opposite Denzel Ward, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
The deal is worth $6.5 million, including $4.1 million guaranteed.
Williams, who expected to be a first-round pick, tumbled to the second round, where the Browns traded up three spots with the Colts to take him at No. 46 overall out of LSU.
Williams worked primarily with the second-team in the first week of OTAs, but is expected to start this season considering his second-round draft status.
“Right now, I’m just focusing on learning the playbook and everything, getting the base defense down and just coming in ready to compete for a spot,” Williams said at rookie minicamp. “So my chances are where I take them.”
