While the Cleveland Browns have had a solid offseason when it comes to adding talent, there are a few key departures from their roster they will miss in 2020

Even with all of the added talent that the Cleveland Browns have acquired through free agency as well as the draft, they have had some departures in areas that they are not necessarily deep in when it comes to depth.

A few spots across the roster that the Browns still need depth in? Linebacker, as well as arguably secondary and defensive line. When it comes to defense for the Browns, I think we can all agree that the defensive performance the Browns put out last season was frustrating, to say the least.

Overall, the Browns defense ranked 20th across the league, per Pro Football Reference. The Browns allowed 6.1 yards per play last season and also allowed 19 rushing touchdowns, tied for fourth-most allowed in the league.

While nothing on the Browns is perfect, the offense is pretty close to having zero holes to fill, especially if rookie tackle Jedrick Wills works out for them. Again, when it comes to key departures for the Browns this offseason, all of them seem to come on defense. 3 guys the Browns are going to miss getting production from in 2020?

No 3. T.J. Carrie, Cornerback

In his two years with the Browns, T.J. Carrie has had a bumpy ride in Cleveland. While the numbers are not necessarily there, he has had some moments where he has provided a much-needed spark for the Browns on defense. Over those two years with the Browns, Carrie only totaled two interceptions. The tackling numbers are decent, as he totaled 74 in 2018 and 52 last season.

When it comes to corners for the Browns, they have a clear number one in Denzel Ward. After that, guys like Greedy Williams and Kevin Johnson will either sink or swim this year.

Carrie has also appeared in at least 13 games every year of his career, making him a reliable option as well. While losing Carrie may not be much in the long run, he provides depth no matter where he goes and is a decent cornerback option in the NFL.
