Nate Burleson had a big decision to make about his future.

Burleson, a free agent, decided to sign with the Cleveland Browns over the Miami Dolphins. His contract is for the 2014 season.

He is going to be the Browns fourth wide receiver this season, and may provide reliable hands in the slot from time to time. Yet, he doesn’t provide the team any play-making ability, as that left him a few years ago.

Last season, he missed 7 games with the Detroit Lions. He got into an accident that caused him to miss the majority of those games, as he attempted to hold a pizza on the passenger seat.

In the past two seasons, he has missed 17 games overall. During the 2012 season, he missed 10 games with a broken leg.

He had 39 receptions for 461 yards and one touchdown in nine games last season.

Burleson visited the Browns on Saturday after visiting the Dolphins on Friday. He left the Dolphins without a contract.

He will provide a veteran wide receiver depth to go with young wide receivers Josh Gordon and Andrew Hawkins.

The Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans were also interested, but nothing became serious with them.
