The Cleveland Browns got a big boost in the passing game via a trade with the Miami Dolphins to acquire Davone Bess, according to Ian Rapaport of NFL.com.
As part of the trade, the Browns get Miami's No. 111 overall and No. 217 overall picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, swapping picks No. 104 and No. 164 to the Dolphins.
The Browns reportedly have also signed Bess to an 3-year contract extension.

NFL.com's Marc Sessler writes: ' It fills a need for Cleveland. The Browns house plenty of young wideouts on the roster in the form of Greg Little, Josh Gordon and Travis Benjamin, but few proven veterans. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner won't waste time plugging Bess into his vertical passing scheme. Averaging 64 catches per year during his five seasons in Miami, Bess isn't a scoring machine, but he gives quarterback Brandon Weeden a solid pass-catching presence underneath. '
