Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman

A fullback? Really? Well Kevin Stefanski utilized a fullback in his offense with the Minnesota Vikings and has already stated that he plans on utilizing the position once again with the Browns. Cleveland has already signed a fullback, Johnny Stanton, to a reserve/future contract.

However, if Stefanski and the Browns want an established fullback who is one of the top players at the undervalued position in today’s NFL, Chiefs fullback Anthony Sherman is set to be a free agent in 2020.

Sherman is a reliable and powerful blocker for the Chiefs offense, but can also make plays as a receiver and rusher. He also provides a presence on special teams, as he has proven to be a top special teams player for the Chiefs. But not only is Sherman impactful on the field, but he is also a leader in the locker room.

In the past three seasons, Sherman has made 16 receptions for 165 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for 51 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries. In his nine-year career, Sherman has also made 59 total tackles and forced five fumbles.

The Browns did not have a true fullback on the roster in 2019. However, the team would use one of their group of tight ends in an H-back role and would sometimes line them up in the backfield as a blocker.

Next. Mayfield puts pressure on himself for 2020. dark

It is hard to imagine the Chiefs letting Sherman walk in free agency considering the impact he makes in multiple areas. But if the Browns want to establish themselves as one of the top rushing offenses in the NFL, snagging Sherman in free agency would make life easier for Nick Chubb and whoever is else is rushing the football.
