The Miami Dolphins have traded receiver Davone Bess to the Cleveland Browns. The move was rumored over the past week, and took place during the 2013 NFL Draft's second round.

The terms are not yet known, but expected to be a "mid-round pick." Cleveland reportedly signed Bess to a three year contract extension.

Bess signed with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2008. In his five years with the Dolphins, he tallied 321 receptions for 3,447 yards, and 12 touchdowns. He also worked as a punt returner for the team, averaging 10.4 yards per return on 115 punts.

The Dolphins have been aggressive all offseason, signing Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson, along with re-signing Brian Hartline, all at the receiver position. Bess essentially became expendable as he fell further down the depth chart. He was entering the final year of his contract.

We will update as more details become known.
