Veteran running back Carlos Hyde reportedly agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Cleveland Browns ahead of the official opening of free agency at 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday. The Browns are keeping their options open, and that means Barkley remains part of the discussion. His injuries were certainly a factor in deciding what kind of deal to sign the running back to, but his production still made the deal worth it for the Browns. San Francisco might still be in play for Minnesota free agent Jerick McKinnon.
The Browns have the first and fourth picks in the draft, and are expected to take a quarterback with one of the picks.
He played a full 16-game season for the first time in his National Football League career, and his 59 receptions and 350 receiving yards were more than he had posted in his previous three years combined (50 receptions for 284 yards).
In a separate deal, Former Lions TE Darren Fells plans to sign three-year, $12 million deal with the Browns, sources told ESPN's Dan Graziano.

Hyde, 27, was again the most productive running back for the 49ers in 2017, leading the team in rushing yards (938) while setting a career high with eight rushing touchdowns.
Hyde finished last season having played and started in all 16 games - the first time he's done so in his career. Through the air, the former 49ers starting running back added 109 receptions and amassed 634 yards, scoring another three touchdowns.
Considering the fact that both general manager Dave Gettleman and head coach Pat Shutmur envision quarterback Eli Manning playing a few more seasons, the Giants may be more inclined to pass on drafting a quarterback at No. 2 overall. He can get tough yards, though, which was one of the criticisms of Crowell. In four seasons, he has 1,918 rushing yards (4.0 yards a carry) and 984 receiving yards (6.9 yards a catch) while making 14 starts.
