Cleveland Browns: 3 second-wave free agent targets
The Cleveland Browns made some noise in the first wave of free agency, but could still land some playmakers in the second wave. Here are three names to watch should they decide to try and make more moves
The first wave of free agency always has the loudest splashes, and the Cleveland Browns were one team leaping off the diving board to make those splashes. They headed into 2019 ready to make some moves, and they didn’t disappoint.
Even before the offseason officially began, they proved they were out to add talent as they picked up running back Kareem Hunt. He will be suspended the first eight games of the season, but he still was the 2017 rushing leader and should help the offense once he returns.
They also added defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to beef up their defensive line while making an underrated signing when they picked up linebacker Adarius Taylor from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They weren’t done there as they picked up players such as Eric Kush and Kendall Lamm to add depth to their offensive line.
Still, it was the trade for Odell Bekcham, Jr. that made the most noise. General manager John Dorsey pulled off the impossible and added the former Pro Bowl wideout from New York which has people buying Cleveland stock.
As for Dorsey, he seems to be of the firm belief that they haven’t accomplished anything yet. If he really believes that, then the GM could be making some more moves as we enter the second wave of free agency. If he does dip his toes into that water, here are three names to keep an eye on as potential targets.
