The Cleveland Browns have committed to building the team through the NFL Draft, but there is plenty of cap space to sign some free agents.

A major part of any professional sports team’s rebuilding process is the draft. Poor performances on the field at the beginning of the process give the team high draft picks, which in theory should make the team better.

The Cleveland Browns are still in the early stages of the rebuilding process, which is evident given the team’s holding of the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The Browns want to build a dominant team through the draft, but that doesn’t mean the team must ignore talent that already has NFL experience. The signing of Jamie Collins was a sign the team won’t completely ignore free agents and star players, but the Browns must continue to add some experienced talent with the over $100 million in cap space this offseason.

This does not mean the front office should blindly throw money at players, but it would only help if some talent was brought in to assist the young players who are still learning the ways of the NFL.

The Browns are not likely to spend too much in free agency, but anything is possible with this franchise. And while waiting to sign a quarterback may be in the team’s best interest, the patience may run thin and the front office could decide to invest in a new signal-caller.

Anything can happen once free agency begins next month, so let’s take a look at this news and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
