Cleveland Browns cornerback target: Charvarius Ward
Charvarius Ward currently plays cornerback for the Kansas City Chiefs, so you might keep an eye on him this Sunday in the AFC Championship Game as he’s been a regular starter for the Chiefs.
This target by the Browns could be a stretch but it would be worth looking into for a Cleveland team looking to continue to contend and get back to the playoffs. Ward was paid $3.3 this past season so he’ll be expecting more on his next deal.
He did go undrafted out of Middle Tennessee State in 2018 but then signed with the Dallas Cowboys. From there, he was traded to the Chiefs before that season started. Ward has now started for Kansas City the last three seasons. Would he even want to leave a team like the Chiefs, who are constantly challenging for a Super Bowl?
That’s hard to determine at the moment, but his career has been a good one by the numbers. He’s collected 222 tackles, including 67 this past season, to go along with four career interceptions and he’s only 25 years old. If Denzel Ward were to not get a new deal done with the Browns, then a player like Charvarius Ward would be a suitable starter in his place.
Cleveland Browns cornerback target: Sidney Jones
Sidney Jones has moved around the league a bit to this point. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2017 NFL draft. The former Washington Husky, who’s only 25 years old moved over to the Seattle Seahawks this past offseason, signing a $1.75 million contract. He again is a free agent. He had a good season in Seattle, recording a career-best 66 tackles. He was a starter with the Seahawks this past year.
The news out of Seattle suggests that the Seahawks would be interested in keeping Jones there especially with his next contract not expected to break the bank and his production was pretty decent this last season.
