The Browns have acquired wide receiver Davone Bess in a trade with the Miami Dolphins and reached an agreement with him on a three-year contract extension, his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, confirmed tonight for the Beacon Journal.

The Browns traded a fourth-round pick (No. 104) and a fifth-round selection (No. 164) in exchange for a fourth-round pick (No. 111), a seventh-round choice (No. 217) and Bess, the team announced.

General Manager Mike Lombardi said the trade is contingent upon Bess passing a physical, which he's expected to take Saturday. Lombardi said the three-year contract extension has yet to be finalized.

Bess, who served as the Dolphins' primary slot receiver, was entering the final year of his old contract.

The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Bess caught 61 passes for 778 yards and one touchdown in 13 games last season. In 2010, Bess established career highs in catches (79), receiving yards (820) and touchdowns (five).

Bess, 27, signed with the Dolphins in 2008 as an undrafted rookie free agent. He has spent all five of his NFL seasons in Miami.
