3 free agent defensive tackles Browns could still pursue ahead of 2022 season
No. 1: Tyeler Davison
Last team: Atlanta Falcons
If you’re looking for a slightly younger player but still well accomplished in the NFL look no further than Tyeler Davison. He most recently played with the Atlanta Falcons but was released this past March.
Originally drafted by the New Orleans Saints back in 2015, Davison joined the Falcons in 2019, and he continued to improve as a player. He started in 38 of 44 games in three seasons with Atlanta and recorded 121 tackles including nine for losses.
If the Browns are looking to add more depth to this group, then Davison might be a good find in free agency. He’s taken about half the defensive snaps on his teams over the last several years.
He wouldn’t be a flashy signing at this point in the preseason but could provide valuable experience on a team such as the Browns who don’t have much veteran experience on the defensive tackle spots. He would likely cost the team much either.
While players like Jordan Elliott and Taven Bryan should be decent this season and a young rookie like Perrion Winfrey should eventually add some strength to the line we still don’t know if a player like Tommy Togiai will be able to step in and produce this year.
Cleveland would be advised to keep looking around the NFL and the few agency market to target a new player or two.
