Around the Dawg Pound: Saturday Afternoon Links


It’s no secret that the Browns have a lot of needs right now. Once this lockout ends, the free agency period will begin and one has to assume that the Browns will be active in finding players to plug those holes. But who could the Browns target? The team has money to spend and impact players will be available, players like defensive end Ray Edwards and Glenville graduate Donte Whitner.

These would obviously be great additions to the Browns but, as ESPN’s James Walker suggests, the real challenge will come in convincing these types of players why they should join a team that is rebuilding once again. It certainly doesn’t help that the Browns are in the AFC North, which means contending for the playoffs will be an especially tough struggle.

Who would you like to see the Browns go after in free agency once it begins?
