Trent Richardson trade: Willis McGahee 'will be signing' with Browns, pending physical


The Browns appear to have a plan to replace traded running back Trent Richardson.

It's out with the young and in with the old in Cleveland, as the Browns "will be signing free agent RB Willis McGahee if he passes a physical," reports CBS's Jason La Confora. The Browns haven't officially announced if a contract has been agreed upon, but they confirmed McGahee was coming to Cleveland for a physical in their press release announcing their blockbuster trade Wednesday evening, in which they traded Trent Richardson to the Colts for a first-round pick.

McGahee was on the street throughout the offseason and received little publicized interest during the summer. He last played for the Broncos from 2011-2012 and made the Pro Bowl during his first season in Denver. The former first-round pick of the Bills has also played for Buffalo and the Baltimore Ravens during his 11-year career. He's compiled 8,097 rushing yards and 63 rushing touchdowns during his time in the NFL.

The Browns travel to Minnesota for a Week 3 matchup against the Vikings at 1 p.m. ET Sunday. The game will be televised on CBS.
