No. 3: Dre'Mont Jones, Denver Broncos

Now we are getting into the portion of the list that the Browns might want to avoid, but time will ultimately tell. Dre'Mont Jones had a good 2022 season and has turned to be a quality four-year veteran for the Broncos.

Denver has a decision to make on whether to tag Jones, get a new deal worked out, or let him walk in free ageny. The tag would be roughly $19 million, so a new deal would be the better option in this scenario.

That is where the Browns might look at his asking price and decide to back off, but should Berry work some cap magic, it would be highly beneficial to see if he can land Jones in Cleveland.

In 13 games in 2022, Jones had 47 tackles (24 solo, nine for a loss), 16 pressures, and 6.5 sacks, which tied a career-best. In his first four professional seasons, Jones has a whopping 16 pressures and 22 sacks. That would be a dream come true for the Browns at the defensive tackle position.

This could be a sound investment should Berry and the Browns go this route as Jones is only 26-years old and is ascending in the NFL.
