Ready, Set, Go
The legal tampering period for the NFL starts Monday, March 13 at noon EST and it appears social media is loaded with experts. First, it was the Browns were interested in Bengals safety Jessie Bates. Then Cleveland is going to trade for wide receiver Brandin Cooks. Let’s add bringing back OBJ. Now it’s being reported that the team is interested in defensive tackle Dre’Mont Jones. Wow, that’s a lot of salary to add to a roster that’s already pretty expensive. Getting back to reality, yes Browns GM Andrew Berry is going to sign free agents and trade for players. But he can’t sign and trade for everyone. Here are some names to keep an eye on prior to the new league year starting on March 15. I’ll only concentrate on the four positions of most concern, DT, DE, S and WR and a yearly salary figure.
