The Browns have money to spend and needs to fill in free agency. Here are five players the team should go after ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft.
Pending any unforeseen Coronavirus impact, the legal tampering period for NFL free agency has begun, with contracts able to be signed two days later. The NFL Draft is not the only way to acquire talent, as the Cleveland Browns have some work to do, currently armed with about $68 million in cap space, a number that can increase to just under $76 million with the cuts of Chris Hubbard and Morgan Burnett.
After deciding to let Pro Bowl linebacker Joe Schobert hit the open market, that will open up another potential hole on their roster. With a ton of money to spend in rollover cap, expect the Browns to land at least one big contract, then potentially a flurry of mid-sized contracts on starters at positions such as linebacker and tight end.
New general manager Andrew Berry promised to be aggressive in player acquisition, and he’ll have the opportunity to add some great values at positions of need without breaking the bank. Here are five players the Browns should sign in free agency this year who could alter their 2020 NFL Draft plans as the new league year begins.
