With the Green Bay Packers releasing defensive tackle Mike Daniels, it looks like there is one more free agency feeding frenzy to be had. According to analyst Mike Garafolo, the Cleveland Browns are a prime suitor.
Training camp is finally underway, and on the first day of camp for the Green Bay Packers, the green and gold made a shocker of a move.
The Packers released Pro Bowl defensive tackle Mike Daniels, allowing the 30-year old Iowa product to hit the waters of free agency.
According to NFL insider Mike Garafolo, the Cleveland Browns are interested in bringing Daniels on board.
Daniels is a fantastic run stopper, and could provide serious depth for Cleveland at the defensive tackle position — a position which surely could use some added depth.
He will fetch a decent amount of money in free agency, but being on the opposite side of 30 will likely keep him from getting a superstar contract. With over $30 million left in cap space, general manager John Dorsey can still afford to get a little bit aggressive to sign Daniels, who he already has numerous past connections with.
Not only does Dorsey have ties to Daniels from his time in Green Bay, but Elliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith also have connections from the same team.
Reports say that Daniels would like to play for a Super Bowl contender this season, and the Browns could push themselves into that territory with one more big signing. Daniels adds tremendous depth to the defensive side, as well as veteran leadership. For a team looking to bolster their roster like the Browns are, he is certainly worth a look.
