It seems that the Cleveland Browns are a team that have never been shy about trying to sign players to big contracts.
With the franchise in its third year in town, it seems like they have a few good names to target.
We have been following the team all offseason as they make big moves to add a few players to the roster, which will help them on their path to the Super Bowl.
The Browns have already signed former Raiders and Bengals quarterback Case Keenum, and they also have some high profile free agents who they would like to add.
Now, here is the list of players that the Browns are looking to sign this offseason: Jared Goff – The former University of California quarterback, who has had a lot of success in the NFL, has been the target of a number of teams this offseason.
A lot of teams have shown interest in his services, and he has yet to sign with a team, but the Browns have shown some interest and have made it clear that they want him to be their franchise quarterback.
He has been a solid backup to Jared Goff this year and has done a good job for them, but they have been rumored to be eyeing a quarterback.
Randy Gregory – Gregory was a standout for the New Orleans Saints this year.
He was a solid third-stringer for the team for most of the season and he did have some success, but his performance wasn’t great, so he’s been off the radar for a number in the past.
Gregory has been on the Browns radar for some time, and the team made a big push to get him on their roster this offseason, so there are some teams interested in him.
Kirk Cousins – The Redskins quarterback has had some success in his short career in the league, but he has not been able to stay on the field for long, and there are a lot more teams interested than just the Redskins.
Cousins is an elite quarterback, but that doesn’t mean that he will stay with the Redskins for long.
Marcus Mariota – The Titans have been linked to Mariota in the recent past, and it is rumored that they have made a run at him.
The Titans are reportedly one of the teams that have shown the most interest in Mariota this offseason and have shown an interest in a number players to add to the team.
Derek Carr – Carr is one of those quarterbacks that is a huge name on the football scene, and one that has made a name for himself in the college and NFL ranks.
His talent level and experience have made him one of many top quarterbacks to consider for the Browns, but it is a big leap to try and land him this offseason after he struggled with injuries throughout his career.
Matt Cassel – The 49ers quarterbacks coach has a history with the Browns and he is the offensive coordinator for the 49ers team in 2016.
Cassel has been in charge of the 49er offense since the 2014 season, and his success has seen him get drafted by many NFL teams.
One of the biggest questions that teams have about the Browns is whether or not they will be able to compete with the New York Giants for a Super Bowl title this year, and with Cassel as their offensive coordinator, that will be the case.
Michael Thomas – The veteran linebacker has been out of football since he was traded to the Rams last season, but has been linked with the Cleveland franchise for some years.
Thomas is a free agent and has not signed with any team, and that will make it difficult for the Cleveland organization to find a deal for him.
He is also a big name on Cleveland sports media, so it will be interesting to see if he gets a chance to sign a deal with the team in Cleveland.
Bret Bielema – The head coach of the Wisconsin Badgers has been around the NFL for quite a while, and in the current state of the league he would not be the first head coach to come to the Browns.
After leading the Badgers to a 10-1 season and a trip to the College Football Playoff Championship game in 2013, Bielem was fired in 2015, and while he was not exactly a household name when he left, he still was seen as a successful coach.
Since then, he has been very popular with the fans, and fans have been clamoring for a new head coach in the Cleveland area, so the Browns may finally get the chance to hire him.
