Browns Lose Out on CB Andre Goodman, Signs With Broncos

There was some talk that (former) free agent CB Andre Goodman would come visit Cleveland on Monday if he did not sign a deal with the Denver Broncos, a team he was visiting on Sunday.  Turns out, he never got a chance to visit the Browns, because he signed a five-year deal with Denver on Sunday.  The deal is worth up to $25.2 million, with $10 million guaranteed.

So, while the Broncos are busy shoring up their secondary, the Browns are still left with essentially Eric Wright and Brandon McDonald at cornerback.  Goodman would have certainly provided some depth, but there are other free agents and trades to worry about as well.  Free agent DE (at least in the Browns’ 3-4 he would be) C.J. Mosley could visit the Browns later in the week if he does not sign a deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Don’t think the Browns are failures in this year’s free agency bonanza.  After all, it was never the intention of the new regime to go out and throw caution to the wind and look to sign every big-name free agent out there.  The focus has always been the draft for Mangini and Kokinis, and it’s nice to see them stick to that, at least for now.  However, if all continues to be quiet in Cleveland regarding free agency, you can expect to hear more rumors about Derek Anderson.

    25 million for 5 years for Goodman is too rich for my blood.  Let the Broncos have him.  Generally I have found the free agents on the market this year to be overpriced and not necessarily good fits for the Browns.  There are a few exceptions but generally I don’t blame the Team for focussing on the Draft.
