Despite a seemingly obvious need at the wide receiver position, the Cleveland Browns did not use any of their six draft picks on a receiver during last weekend’s NFL Draft.

With star receiver Josh Gordon facing a possible year-long suspension for another violation of the league’s substance-abuse policy and Nate Burleson suffering a broken arm in offseason workouts, the Browns are woefully short on proven pass catchers on their roster.

While the team did add four receivers via undrafted free agency, the Browns have finally added another veteran option to their receiving corps.

According to Jake Jones of KFBB-TV in Helena, Mont., the Browns will sign former Chicago Bears receiver Earl Bennett.
