3 Cleveland Browns trade targets to cure offensive line
The Cleveland Browns could help improve their offense by adding some talent to their offensive line and these three players could be had for the right price
During their most recent loss to the Los Angeles Rams, the Cleveland Browns proved they had a lot of issues they need to work through this season. Head coach Freddie Kitchens understands his role in the struggles and has admitted to making several bad calls in that game.
The call that stood out the most was his fourth-and-nine draw play with running back Nick Chubb. Now, Chubb has been nothing short of sensational for the Browns, but that was a lot of yardage Kitchens expected him to pick up. Then later in the game, it was as if he forgot all about No. 24.
When the Cleveland defense got the Browns the ball back one more time, they moved it inside the 10-yard line. Down seven, they had four tries to tie the game and all four calls were passes. Afterward, he said he probably should have tried at least once with Chubb.
All that having been said, the Browns have more issues than just the play calling. Baker Mayfield is in a sophomore slump and they’re without their top tight end as David Njoku is out with a wrist injury. And on top of that, their offensive line is still a mess.
While it’s not fair to put all their offensive woes on the line, the fact that their only way to have success is to throw the ball within two seconds of the snap is an indicator of how poor the protection for Baker Mayfield has been.
Here, we look at three players who could be available via trade if Cleveland wants to try and buy more time for No. 6 to make his reads.
