Cleveland Browns: 3 free agents to add from AFC North rivals
The Cincinnati Bengals have easily the most talent of any of the four AFC North teams that will see players hit free agency in 2016.
Aside from wide receiver Marvin Jones, they have the likes of Andre Smith, Reggie Nelson, George Iloka and Adam Jones as unrestricted free agents. Any of those players would be good signings, but the 25-year-old Jones is the one that many Browns fans feel could significantly help the team.
Whether or not Josh Gordon is involved with the Browns for the 2016 season, Jones would give the Browns some size at wide receivers, which is something they desperately missed last year. In addition, Jones has strong hands and is a good red zone receiver, as he can highpoint the ball and is adept at using his body to shield defenders. He rebounded from missing the 2014 season due to lower-leg injuries to finish this past season with 65 receptions for 815 yards and four touchdowns.
While the majority of the targets have rightly gone to A.J. Green in Cincinnati, Jones could be a 1,000-plus-yard receiver on the Browns. His prior knowledge of head coach Hue Jackson‘s offense is an added bonus.
Jones should be one of the top targets for the Browns when free agency opens in March.
