The Cleveland Browns signed running back Willis McGahee a day after they dealt Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round draft pick.

The Cleveland Browns have signed running back Willis McGahee

This was confirmed by Tom Reed of the Northeast Ohio Media Group after McGahee passed his physical with the Browns. Reed also adds McGahee is unsure of suiting up in Week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings, citing a source close to the running back. 

The deal is reported to be for one year. 

Browns linebacker D'Qwell Jackson said there's no doubt McGahee will be an asset to the team

"He was with Peyton Manning last season. I have played against him and he's a tough tackle. He's a big guy, he can pass protect, he's a complete back and he's done it for a long time in this league." 

Offensive coordinator Norv Turner agrees.

"He's a veteran player, he knows how to prepare, how to go play. He's been a very good inside runner, based on his experience he would understand the pass protection things and be able to contribute in that area."

McGahee had previously been the starting halfback of the Denver Broncos for the past two seasons but was cut by the team three months ago. He was slated to earn $2.5 million this season prior to the release, per ESPN.  

He then worked out for the New York Giants last week but was beaten out by returning running back Brandon Jacobs. 

A torn MCL and a compression fracture of the right tibia on his right leg kept him out of the final six games of the 2012 season, but still managed to lead the Broncos with 731 rushing yards. However, he also had four lost fumbles which tied him for 10th overall in the NFL

McGahee's signing was imminent with the departure of Trent Richardson, who was traded to the Indianapolis Colts for a 2014 first-round pick on September 18. Fans and teammates alike expressed shock at the trade. 

Aside from the Broncos, the 31-year-old McGahee previously played for the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills.

On the Road: Watching a Gut-Punching Badgers Loss to LSU in Houston

Sep 2 2014 3:07pm CDT | Source: The Big Lead

My life was so good when, on the first play from scrimmage in the second half, Melvin Gordon banged out a 63-yard run to the LSU 12. Though, in hindsight, it was precarious that Gordon got caught from behind, Wisconsin punched it in five plays later to take a 24-7 lead that felt insurmountable. Outnumbered 3-to-1 in the crowd, and thought to be able to win the game by nobody (other than Stone Cold ...
