One of the top running back targets in this year’s NFL free agency, former Ohio State bulldozer Carlos Hyde is expected to sign a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns, according to Ian Rapoport. There wasn’t much chatter during the beginning of the “legal tampering period” of free agency about the back, but there was little doubt that the Buckeye would end up with a solid deal coming off of his rookie contract.
