Trent Richardson is going to make it to training camp on time after reportedly signing his rookie deal with the Browns.

The number of first-round 2012 NFL Draft picks still without signed contracts is dwindling as the dawns of NFL training camps approach. The latest to get a deal done: Trent Richardson, who agreed to terms with the Browns on Monday night, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

Richardson, the No. 3 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, got a four-year deal with $20 million of guaranteed money and a signing bonus north of $13 million, according to Mortensen, which is in line with the lower numbers for rookies in the post-CBA economy. He should now be able to report to training camp on Thursday without incident.

With the Browns locking up their franchise running back of the future on Monday, focus on Tuesday should pivot to Cleveland's second first-round pick, quarterback Brandon Weeden, who is also without a deal.
