The Browns have signed rookie offensive lineman Garrett Gilkey to a four-year contract, the team announced today.
The Browns picked Gilkey in the seventh round (No. 227 overall) of this year’s draft. He started 34 of the 37 games in which he appeared at Chadron State University, where he played left tackle. He received All-America honors and was one of three Division II players invited to the Senior Bowl.
The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Gilkey has been working at guard with the Browns during organized team activities.
Gilkey is the second member of this year’s draft class to sign his rookie contract with the Browns. Former Notre Dame safety Jamoris Slaughter, a sixth-round pick, also signed a four-year deal with the team this week.
Outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo (first round), cornerback Leon McFadden (third round) and defensive end Armonty Bryant (seventh round) have yet to sign.
