New York, NY (Sports Network) - The Miami Dolphins have dealt wide receiver
Davone Bess to the Cleveland Browns.
The deal was consummated Friday on the second evening of the NFL Draft.
Along with Bess, the Dolphins dealt fourth and seventh-round draft choices to
the Browns for fourth and fifth-round selections for this year's draft.
Bess had spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Dolphins. He
had 61 catches for 778 yards and a touchdown last season. Over his career, he
has 321 receptions for 3,447 yards and 12 touchdowns.
"Davone was a consummate professional on the field and a model representative
of the team off it through all of his charitable activities," Dolphins
general manager Jeff Ireland said. "He joined the Dolphins as an undrafted
free agent and worked hard to become one of the team's most popular and
respected players. We want to wish him the best of luck with the Browns."
