Daily Dawg Tags: Targeting players in free agency


The Cleveland Browns are looking to rebuild the roster through the NFL Draft, but there is still talent to be found through free agency.

The Cleveland Browns opted for a total rebuild last year, choosing to restart and get rid of a lot of talent on the roster. The new plan was to build through the NFL Draft for the next several years.

That plan marches on in 2017 as the Browns own both the No. 1 and No. 12 overall picks in the first round of the upcoming Draft, but there are still other opportunities to add some talent.

One of those ways is to retain players who are now free agents, which has already been done with Jamie Collins. The same goes for Terrelle Pryor, who still needs to be signed to a new deal.

But outside of the roster, there are players all over the NFL who could be potential fits with the Browns in 2017.

There is hardly one solidified spot on the roster, except maybe the left tackle position, where the team would avoid a fresh face to take on the role. This ranges anywhere from quarterback to the defensive secondary.

So while the bulk of the focus surrounding the Browns in on the Draft, look for the team to add some players via free agency. Let’s take a look at that and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
