Browns Come to Terms with 3rd Round DT Hughes and 7th Round CB Wade

The Browns today came to terms with two draft picks, as the team inked third round defensive tackle John Hughes and seventh round cornerback Trevin Wade.

Financial terms of both deals were not disclosed.

Hughes, a 6-foot-3, 309-pound defensive tackle from the University of Cincinnati, recorded 141 tackles, 25.5 tackles for a loss and nine sacks during his 50-game career with the Bearcats. Hughes is expected to be the No. 3 tackle behind starters Ahtyba Rubin and 2011 first round pick Phil Taylor.

Wade played his college ball at Arizona, where he was a three-year starter who totaled 182 tackles with 12 interceptions, two he returned for touchdowns, and 28 passes defensed. The 5-foot-10, 192-pound cornerback is expected to compete with Buster Skrine and Dimitri Patterson for snaps at the nickel corner role and contribute on special teams as a rookie.
