It was a whirlwind day of back and forth, but now it appears the Cleveland Browns will in fact sign Super Bowl champion linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year-deal, reports say.
After initial reports from NFL.com that the Browns were signing him, Kendricks reportedly told Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the report was not accurate, and that he wasn't really talking about it.
