2. Spencer Drango
Who doesn’t love a good reunion? Spencer Drango last played in an NFL regular-season game with the Cleveland Browns in 2017, and could easily be a candidate to come back in 2020. There aren’t many appealing options available this close to the season. Andrew Berry was a part of the front office that first drafted Drango in the 2016 draft, so Berry is familiar with what Drango can bring to the table.
Drango won’t demand nearly as big of a contract as the previous names on this list and is currently only 27. If you’re looking for a guy who could be a long-term backup, Drango is probably your best bet on this list. He’d be a low-risk signing and is already familiar with the city and some of the guys on the team, like Joel Bitonio.
Drango was played a very tough hand during his tenure in Cleveland, as he was stuck underneath Hue Jackson for his two seasons. He also had to be the guy to try to originally take over for Joe Thomas. Trying to make a fifth-round pick in his second season come in and start in place of a first-ballot hall of famer is just a recipe for failure.
Special times call for special circumstances, and Drango deserves another shot in Cleveland.
