3 Players the Cleveland Browns could use as trade bait
In Andrew Berry’s short time as the general manager for the Cleveland Browns, he has already made a lot of solid moves. Like his predecessor, John Dorsey, Berry was active in player acquisition as he landed Jack Conklin, Austin Hooper, Karl Joseph, and more in free agency.
He was also active in the draft, trading down to acquire more picks while still landing premium talent such as Grant Delpit from LSU, who happens to be one of the better safeties in this class.
Unlike Dorsey, Berry has yet to start trading players away — Dorsey did a lot of this as he was overhauling the roster he inherited. For Berry, he’s released cornerback T.J. Carrie and linebacker Christian Kirksey, but we haven’t seen him flip players on the bottom of the depth chart for more picks.
This could change soon, perhaps when training camps start. And if it does, these are the names to watch for as the team looks for trade bait.
Honorable mention: Terrance Mitchell
Terrance Mitchell was with John Dorsey back when both were part of the Kansas City Chiefs. In 2018, Mitchell joined the Browns as he followed his former GM.
A physical corner, Mitchell harasses opposing wide receivers and makes every catch difficult. He’s been an underrated player throughout his career but once again finds himself deep down the depth chart.
For that reason, the Browns might be willing to listen to offers for the veteran. As long as they like their options behind Denzel Ward, Greedy Williams, and Kevin Johnson, it might be worth seeing what value Mitchell has.
