Cleveland Browns need No. 2: More WR Depth
It may not appear likely as of now, but the Browns should bring in one wide receiver into that position room for some much-needed depth.
Currently, Cleveland has Amari Cooper, Donovan Peoples-Jones, Jakeem Grant Sr., David Bell, Anthony Schwartz, and Ja’Marcus Bradley.
Cleveland would be expected to keep around six wide receivers on their final roster, so signing one more playmaker wouldn’t be the worst idea. Schwartz and Bradley are not guaranteed a spot on the final 53-man roster, and therefore a veteran wide receiver could be very beneficial in that room.
For example, a guy like Will Fuller could be a low-risk, high-reward signing. Fuller has an established connection with Deshaun Watson but has been slowed down by injuries throughout his entire career.
A spot like Cleveland though may give Fuller the opportunity to not be forced to constantly be on the field. Fuller along with the current wide receiver room would be nice depth and would give the Browns some leeway if an injury were to occur.
Another potential wide receiver target could be veteran Julio Jones. Julio is another guy who has proven himself as an elite wideout when he’s healthy. Like Fuller, Cleveland would give him an opportunity to play in certain situations and he would not be overworked.
One other unlikely option is Odell Beckham Jr. OBJ is a free agent and still looking for a home. It seems as if Beckham Jr may elect to go back to Los Angeles, however, it is still something to figure out. We saw last year that OBJ still has something left in the tank, and a return to Cleveland would make for quite the storyline.
If it’s Fuller, Jones, or someone else, the Browns should definitely look to bring in another receiver for depth and competition at the position.
