Cleveland Browns fans waited throughout the draft for a wide receiver, and the pick never happened.

General manager Ray Farmer stated that wide receivers were available on the market, and he signed former Chicago Bear Earl Bennett, the Plain Dealer reported.

Bennett was cut by the Bears in March when he refused to take a reduction in pay. He caught 32 passes last year, bringing his total to 185 in his six years with the Bears.

The Browns will need more help at wide receiver, especially if they lose Josh Gordon to a year-long suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
