The Cleveland Browns have several free agents coming up this offseason. Here are three of them who need to be re-signed by the front office.
As of late, the Cleveland Browns have been under fire. Following some grand expectations entering the season, they started out 2-2 but then were dealt four consecutive losses.
They finally stopped the bleeding with a come-from-behind win over the Buffalo Bills in Week 10, but at 3-6, there's still a lot of work to be done. Unfortunately, most of that work will be centered on finding an identity for the team heading into the 2020 season.
That's because — barring a miracle — they have fallen too far behind the Baltimore Ravens for the AFC North. Still, this season can be a success if they find something to build on, and a lot of that could mean deciding which players should be a part of the team going forward.
With several free agents this offseason, we look at the three who should be re-signed by general manager John Dorsey, and it wouldn't even be the worst idea to get some of these done sooner rather than later.
Notable Omission: Ricky Seals-Jones, TE
Since being claimed off waivers, Ricky Seals-Jones has proven to be a valuable commodity in Cleveland. The problem is, he hasn't been used enough in recent weeks. Since his Week 6 game that saw him pull in a touchdown on three catches for 47 yards, Seals-Jones has been silent — and a knee injury suffered in Week 9 has kept him out as well.
It would be nice to see him back in Cleveland next season as he was able to stretch the field. However, we need to first see him re-integrated into the offense this season. It looks as though he will miss Week 11, but hopefully, after that, we can see him back out there proving he should be re-signed.
