3 Moves Cleveland Browns fans could buy into
By Randy Gurzi
3. Re-sign Ricky Seals-Jones
Last season, tight end Ricky Seals-Jones landed with the Cleveland Browns after being released by the Arizona Cardinals. He proved quickly to have a solid rapport with Baker Mayfield, gaining 82 yards and scoring a touchdown in just his second game of the season.
Seals-Jones ended up playing in 12 games for the Browns and while he never got the same usage he had in their Week 4 win over the Baltimore Ravens, he did finish with some respectable numbers. The pass-catching tight end had 14 receptions on 22 targets for 229 yards – which was good for more than 16-yards per catch.
He was also good at finding the end zone, scoring four touchdowns on the season. His ability to attack the middle of the field helped Cleveland’s offense, as did the fact that he scored a touchdown on 28 percent of his touches on the year.
Cleveland will be able to match any offers RSJ receives this offseason, provided they give him a qualifying offer. Should they do that, and be able to keep him, they will have a guy who can continue to grow with Mayfield and should be even better utilized in Kevin Stefanski’s offense.
Stefanski had both Kyle Rudolph and rookie Irv Smith, Jr. last season and was able to keep both happy. That’s impressive considering the offense also featured Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook. He will have a similar number of weapons wanting the ball in Cleveland and has shown he knows how to spread it around.
