The Cleveland Browns could bolster their roster via trade
It’s hard to deny that the Cleveland Browns roster is deeper now than it has been in years. There are very few spots open for grabs and unlike last season, they also have depth at some of the most important positions.
General manager Andrew Berry took over a talented roster from John Dorsey, who added players such as Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham, Denzel Ward, and Jarvis Landry to a team that already had Myles Garrett, Larry Ogunjobi, and David Njoku.
What Dorsey didn’t add was great backups at quarterback, wide receiver, and defensive line. He also didn’t fill out the offensive line, all of which hurt the team in 2019.
Thankfully, Berry was able to fix this as he added two starting offensive tackles in Jack Conklin and Jedrick Wills. He also addressed the depth issues on the defensive line by signing Adrian Clayborn while also drafting Jordan Elliott (he did also sign Andrew Billings, but the big man opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns). There’s also more talent behind Mayfield thanks to the addition of quarterback Case Keenum — one of the best backups in the NFL.
With all that being said, there are still a few areas where the Browns could use some help. While free agency is an option, they could also land someone via trade. And now that training camps are underway, we might start to see which players could be on the bubble, making their respective teams more willing to listen to trade offers.
Here we look at three such players who could potentially be available for the Browns to make an offer on.
