KU product McMillan signs with Browns


— The Cleveland Browns signed two more rookie draft picks to contracts Monday, but have yet to reach a deal with first-round selection Braylon Edwards.

The wide receiver may miss the start of training camp.

The club reached deals with defensive back Brodney Pool and defensive lineman David McMillan. Pool received a five-year deal, and McMillan, a former Kansas University standout, signed for four. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The Browns, who open training camp Friday in Berea, Ohio, have signed six of their eight picks with Edwards and quarterback Charlie Frye, a third-round pick, as the only current holdouts.

The Browns picked McMillan, a three-year starter at KU, in the fifth round (139th overall). As a senior, he had a career-high seven sacks. In 46 career games for the Jayhawks, he had 15 sacks. McMillan is expected to play outside linebacker in Cleveland's new 3-4 defense.

Pool and McMillan will play special teams this season.
