Browns are signing Carlos Hyde, former Buckeyes RB, to 3-year deal

Carlos Hyde to sign with Cleveland Browns

The signing of Hyde puts into question whether the Browns would be tempted to select standout running back prospect Saqoun Barkley out of Penn State in the upcoming National Football League draft. Reports indicate the fifth-year pro has agreed to a three-year, $15 million contract with the Cleveland Browns.

In 50 career games played for the 49ers in four seasons, Hyde rushed for 2,731 yards on 655 carries (4.2 yards per rush), 21 rushing touchdowns, 109 receptions for 634 yards (5.8 yards per catch), and three touchdown receptions. He also had 59 receptions for 350 yards as his role expanded in coach Kyle Shanahan's offense as he played a full 16-game schedule for the first time.

Man United's Carrick to hang up his boots at end of season
The 36-year-old has tipped Scott McTominay to be his heir with the Scot enjoying a solid start to life at the club. Carrick is, though, expected to remain at United as part of Jose Mourinho s coaching staff next season.

Hyde was set to enter his sophomore season at Ohio State when he posted the tweet. The strong expectation is the Browns kick off the draft by selecting Sam Darnold out of USC. Browns coach Hue Jackson has a background as a running backs coach. Fortunately for Hyde, he proved in 2017 that he was able to pull off an entire season in the starting lineup - even despite some on-and-off hip and concussion issues.

During this offseason, the Browns have already executed trades for three players. The team also is expected to sign offensive tackle Chris Hubbard once free agency opens.

That included choosing among the draft prospects that include Josh Allen, Josh Rosen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and others. The 30-year old QB finished the season with 3,547 passing yards as well as 22 touchdowns and seven interceptions.

As the Indianapolis Colts prepare for the 2018 NFL Draft, there are a few opinions on what they should do with the No. 3 overall pick.

They did address some of their depth at the position on Tuesday, signing veteran running back Jonathan Stewart to a two-year deal for $6.9 million with $2.95 million guaranteed. He was mostly a backup for his first two seasons.

Rajya Sabha Elections 2018: BJP Nominates 18 Candidates, Congress To Field 10
The BJP had nominated sitting Rajya Sabha MPs and Union Ministers Parshottam Rupala and Mansukh Mandaviya. While the JD (S) is short by 15 votes, the Congress too is short of some votes for the third MP.

If that is true, then the potential is there for Hyde to up his game and at least match his output from 2016. He went on to claim career high rushing TDs (8), carries (240), longest rush (61 yards), and total offensive yards (1288).
