Here are a few names who could be up next for their extensions with the Cleveland Browns.
Andrew Berry and the Cleveland Browns front office have been very active recently. With the extension of Myles Garrett and the restructuring of Olivier Vernon, all of their top goals left this offseason have been accomplished. It is now time to turn their attention towards next offseason and hopefully be able to retain some of their free agents.
None of the guys on this list would be considered the main core of the roster. Guys who are pretty much considered cornerpieces of this roster, like Odell Beckham Jr., Myles Garrett, Baker Mayfield, Denzel Ward, and others are locked up for years to come. However, each of these players has a strong role to play on this roster and would be hard to replace.
With how active Andrew Berry has been with contracts recently, it wouldn’t be surprising at all to see these guys get extensions done during the season. Berry will most likely want to leave his mark on the roster and change some things up, but it will be hard for him to deny paying some of the talent on the roster he has inherited.
Along with that, extensions of contracts usually tend to be more team-friendly, so it will be easier to extend players rather than find replacements in free agency.
Number five on this list is a guy who could easily find himself as a cap casualty, but will likely get an extension done in Cleveland instead.
