Browns sign WR David Nelson

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the Browns have added former Bills wide receiver David Nelson @DavidNelson86 on a one-year deal. Nelson, who tore the ACL in his right knee in the 2012 season opener against the Jets, caught 61 passes for 658 yards and five touchdowns with Buffalo in 2011. The 26-year-old is likely to become Cleveland's top slot receiver.

Fantasy Analysis:

It's not a great signing for Nelson's fantasy value since he probably won't be anything more than the No. 3 or No. 4 option in the Browns' passing attack. But it's a quality, cheap pickup by the Browns. With WR Josh Gordon, running back Trent Richardson, and tight end Jordan Cameron, this is an offense full of potential. Add in the sure-handed Nelson and the not-sure-handed-but-talented Greg Little, and Brandon Weeden @bweeden3 has quite a set of weapons to work with this season. It sounds like the Browns will stick with Weeden for at least one more year. He will have the table set for him to possibly have a breakout campaign.
