Cleveland Brown

To enhance the Cleveland Browns’ roster, a single trade, cut, and signing are recommended.

The Browns demonstrated their roster’s completeness by making the playoffs in 2023 with four different starting quarterbacks. The potential for another Super Bowl contention hinges on quarterback Deshaun Watson’s progress in the upcoming season.

Given the lack of a first- and fourth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft and a salary cap exceeding $19.5 million with 24 impending free agents, the Browns should prioritize quantity over quality. While still considering a talented prospect at pick No. 54, trading down to accumulate more draft capital makes strategic sense.

On the roster adjustment front:

TRADE: Moving back in the 2024 NFL Draft to amass additional draft picks would address the voids in Cleveland’s roster.

CUT: Considering the underwhelming performance of wide receiver Elijah Moore, who recorded 59 catches for 640 yards and two touchdowns after a second-round trade with the Jets, releasing him would save nearly $2 million. This move could aid in financial recovery while providing opportunities for other receivers like Cedric Tillman and David Bell.

SIGNING: Addressing the need for a reliable No. 2 wide receiver, the Browns should explore tier two free-agent options, given their financial constraints. Players like Marquise Brown or Calvin Ridley, proven 1,000-yard receivers, could complement Amari Cooper and David Njoku without straining the budget. This move would eliminate excuses for Watson in 2024.
