BEREA, Ohio >> The Cleveland Browns have acquired veteran wide receiver Davone Bess in a trade from the Miami Dolphins.

The deal, which has been rumored for several days, can’t be finalized until Bess, a former Hawaii receiver, passes a physical, Browns general manager Michael Lombardi said Friday night. Lombardi added the Browns have discussed giving Bess a three-year contract extension.

To get Bess, the Browns traded their fourth-round pick (No. 104) and fifth-round (No. 164) to the Dolphins for Miami’s fourth-round pick (No. 111) and a seventh-rounder (No. 217).

Bess spent five seasons with Miami, catching at least 50 passes each season. He had 61 receptions for 778 yards and one touchdown in 13 games last season.

Bess gives the Browns quality depth at a troublesome position the past few seasons.
