CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Browns have all their campers under contract.

With coach Eric Mangini set to hold his first workout Saturday, the Browns agreed to terms on a four-year contract with rookie wide receiver Brian Robiskie, the club’s last unsigned player.

Robiskie’s agent, Joel Segal, said the sides reached agreement Thursday. Financial terms were not immediately available.
“Brian is looking forward to getting started,” Segal said.

Robiskie was taken with the No. 36 overall pick in April’s draft. He will compete for a starting job with fellow rookie Mohammed Massaquoi, another second-round pick who signed his contract and reported to camp this week. Mangini had all his first-year players report one week earlier than the veterans.

Robiskie caught 55 passes for 935 yards and 11 touchdowns last season for Ohio State. He was also once a ballboy with the Browns when his father, Terry, was on Cleveland’s coaching staff.

The Browns have little depth at wide receiver, which gives both Robiskie and Massaquoi a chance to earn playing time. Veteran Joe Jurevicius retired during the offseason and Donte Stallworth has been indefinitely suspended after serving jail time on a DUI charge.

Also, top wide receiver Braylon Edwards was placed on the team’s non-football active list this week after failing his physical with an ankle injury. Edwards reportedly hurt his ankle playing basketball and was kept out of mini-camp in June. He must pass his physical before he can practice.
