Robinson was one of the players that Dorsey mentioned during his press conference he hopes to re-sign. Robinson showed a lot of progress as the left tackle, and he played well enough to earn another shot at starting next season. It may be another one-year prove it deal, but expect Robinson to be a Brown next season.
Breshad Perriman signed with the Browns midway through the regular season, and played sparingly until Freddie Kitchens was named the Browns interim offensive coordinator. The wide receiver showed his ability as a vertical threat, but also proved to have reliable hands.
In ten games, Perriman caught 16 passes for 340 yards and two touchdowns, with his longest reception going for 66 yards. Perriman looked like a revitalized receiver with the Browns. Cleveland needed a vertical threat, and Perriman provided that. At 25-years-old, Perriman still has a bright future in the league. Dorsey wants to re-sign Perriman, and Perriman may want to return to Cleveland, especially since they were the only organization to give him a shot in 2018.
E.J. Gaines played in six games for the Browns, including two starts. He played well, especially when he started opposite of Denzel Ward. Gaines made 13 total tackles, one tackle for loss, one interception, and three passes defended. His season was cut short due to multiple concussions.
Although Gaines played well when he was healthy, the cornerback may have a hard time finding a multiyear contract on the market. The Browns may try to have Gaines return in 2019 to have quality depth in the secondary.
Phillip Gaines played in 11 games this season, four for the Browns. The cornerback made nine tackles in Cleveland, but made 30 total total tackles, one tackle for loss, and two passes defended in 2018.
Ray-Ray Armstrong played in 15 games this season, playing nine for the Browns. He made six total tackles and one tackle loss for Cleveland. For the entire season, Armstrong made 26 total tackles and two tackles for loss.
Carl Davis played in five games this season, making only one tackle. He spent most of the season inactive for the Browns.
Rod Streater played in three games for the Browns, but the wide receiver did not register a catch. He primarily played on special teams, before being placed on injured reserve.
Earl Watford played in 13 games for the Browns, but played only during extra points or field goals.
