No. 2: Dalvin Tomlinson, Minnesota Vikings

On March 15, the contact of Dalvin Tomlinson will likely be voided, therefore making him a free agent and a guy that should be near the top of the Browns' wishlist of free agents.

Tomlinson was drafted in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft out of Alabama by the New York Giants, where he would spend the first four years of his career. He then signed with the Vikings on a two-year, $21 million deal.

The Vikings raced out to one of the NFL's best records, but it did not matter as the Vikings bowed out of the playoffs early. Regardless, Tomlinson had a good season for Minnesota compiling 42 tackles (20 solo, three for a loss) 14 pressures, 2.5 sacks, a forced and recovered fumble.

Stop me if you've heard this before, but Tomlinson could help on the field and in the locker room with his veteran presence. He knows what it takes to win in the regular season, something the Browns need to focus more on in 2023.

A former Minnesota Viking becoming a Cleveland Brown. Hmm. Wouldn't that be something? That couldn't possibly work out, could it?

Dalvin Tomlinson would be such a huge get for Andrew Berry to help fix the defensive line.
