The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft just signed his rookie deal.

Baker Mayfield is officially a member of the Cleveland Browns. Yes, Baker was drafted three months ago, and have been working out with the team since then, but the news just became official.

Mayfield signed his rookie contract. The former Oklahoma star put pen to paper and will now be eligible to take the field with his fellow rookies in camp - veterans will join not long after.

Here are the contract details from Ian Rapoport.

Mayfield posted a photo of the moment.

Mayfield is guaranteed to make over $30 million during his NFL career. Of course, he's hoping that's just the start as he competes with former Buffalo Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor for the starting job.

Though Browns head coach Hue Jackson has said in the past that Taylor will be the starting quarterback, it will be interesting to see if Mayfield can push the former Bills starter in camp.
