Gilbert was picked 8th overall in the 2014 NFL draft, and was the only Browns' rookie left unsigned. The deal will keep him in Cleveland for the next four years, and is reportedly worth $12.8 million.
The Browns start training camp on Friday where Gilbert will report along with fellow rookie, Johny Manziel. Justin is expected to have an immediate impact and challenge for the second starting corner position opposite Joe Haden.
