McCoy close to signing rookie deal

While the Browns today signed one of their third-round picks, OG Shawn Lauvao, the splashier news is that, according to the Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot , the team's other third-round pick is close to coming to terms on his own deal.

A league source told Cabot that QB Colt McCoy – who was serenaded and roasted by former Texas teammate Jordan Shipley during the McCoy wedding last week – could have a deal done by later today or Friday.

Meanwhile, Cabot writes that Lauvao, “who will compete for a starting guard job, can make up to $3.22 million and will receive a $697,000 signing bonus.” McCoy, for the record, was picked seven spots ahead of Lauvao.

UPDATE (5:30 PM ET):
According to ESPN's James Walker , the McCoy deal is done. Apparently, it's a four-year deal worth up to $5 million.
