CLEVELAND — A person familiar with the agreement says the Cleveland Browns have come to terms on a multiyear contract with rookie quarterback Colt McCoy.

The former Texas star was selected in the third round by the Browns. He is expected to be the club’s third-stringer this season behind Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace. McCoy won 45 games as a starter at Texas — the most in NCAA history — and passed for over 13,000 yards.

The Browns are still in talks with first-round pick Joe Haden, a cornerback from Florida.
