Andrew Berry has made several impressive moves already for the Cleveland Browns but the first-year general manager says he may not be done just yet
If he did nothing else, Andrew Berry would still have put the Cleveland Browns in the best position they have been in for several years. The rookie general manager came into Berea with an aggressive nature and didn’t hold back.
He shot for the big stars in free agency and landed several — the biggest of which were right tackleJack Conklin and tight end Austin Hooper. From there, he landed several future starters in the 2020 NFL Draft, including new left tackle Jedrick Wills and safety Grant Delpit.
However, he might not be done just yet. Berry was a guest on the Ken Carmen show this Wednesday and took the time to say that if there are moves out there that still make sense for them, he will pull the trigger.

"If there is something out there that makes sense in free agent acquistion or a trade acquistion, we’ll do that at any position on the 90-man roster” — Berry said on the Ken Carmen Show according to Chad Porto of Factory of Sadness."
Of course, the biggest name out there that has been tied to the Browns is Jadeveon Clowney. The former South Carolina Gamecocks defensive end was the No. 1 overall pick for the Houston Texans and spent last year with the Seattle Seahawks.
Unable to land a multi-year deal, Clowney is still on the open market and the Browns have been linked to him more than once. Should they land him, it feels like a case of the rich getting richer.
Cleveland already has Myles Garrett, another No. 1 overall pick at defensive end, and Olivier Vernon as the current starters. Adding Clowney would move Vernon to the bench where he would join Adrian Clayborn — which would be an impressive group of edge rushers.
Outside of an impact player such as Clowney, the Browns could be looking to add competition and depth to their 90-man roster. They did just recently re-sign Rashard Higgins after it appeared he wouldn’t be back and they could still bolster their linebacker corps.
While all that’s a guessing game, we do know that Berry isn’t afraid to go out and make the moves he needs to make in order to turn these Browns into contenders in the AFC North.
