The Cleveland Browns are looking for weapons to put around quarterback Deshaun Watson for the 2023 season. Currently, they're in need of one or two receivers that can help next year. Without breaking the bank, the Browns have some intriguing options.

We gave you a list of three running backs who could replace Kareem Hunt earlier in the week. At the top of that list was Jerick McKinnon, who while being a fine backup running back, has excellent abilities as a receiver that could be invaluable to Watson's success. Here's another player with that type of ability.

Parris Cambell, Indianapolis Colts

Parris Campbell, formerly of the Indianapolis Colts and former Ohio State Buckeye would be an awesome addition to the Browns receiver's room. Campbell, finally able to be healthy for a season, registered 63 catches for 623 yards and three touchdowns last year. Pretty good numbers playing on such an awful offense — and it happened at the right time as he hits the open market.

But what's really intriguing about Cambell is the big play abilities that he's demonstrated throughout his career as both a Colt and a Buckeye. He has amazing speed and if given the ball in space, Campbell can take it the distance.

Cleveland is in need of players like that. Amari Cooper is a big play threat but really no one else is in that receiver's room. Watson weapons. Plain and simple. That's exactly what Campbell is. Throw him slip screens, line him up in the backfield, and put him in the slot. There are multiple ways that this guy can be used.

And if the Browns don't sign him some contender will. He fits exactly what this offense needs, and he will come at the right price monetarily. It would be very exciting to see what Campbell could do in a Browns uniform with a good quarterback getting him the ball.
