With Joe Banner stating the Browns are done making big moves in free agency Browns fans will most likely have to get used to sitting back in the recliner and watching potential free agents fly off the board (Not that this is anything new). In the last 24 hours three names the Browns have been linked to have signed their names to the dotted line elsewhere. Former Green Bay wide receiver Greg Jennings followed the path of another Packers’ legend, Brett Favre, migrating 300 miles west, agreeing to a deal with Minnesota.
With Jennings now out of the picture, the list of free agent wide receivers is starting to look awfully thin. Scout.com top remaining free agents at the wide receiver position are Victor Cruz (RFA), Domenik Hixon, Danario Alexander, Emmanuel Sanders, and Julien Edelman. Not much farther down that list is Mohammed Massaquoi, which gives a good idea of the kind of talent available after those four.
The brother of Browns’ offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz, Geoff Schwartz agreed to terms with the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. The former Vikings and Panthers guard was Scout.com’s sixth best free agent guard this off season. Top names remaining in the guard market are Brandon Moore, previously of the Jets, and Kevin Boothe, previously of the Giantts.
Add another cornerback to the list of names that will not be suiting up in orange and brown next year. Antoine Cason has agreed to terms with Arizona. Cason is far from a top end corner, but the Browns are starved for help in the secondary and the free agent cupboard for corners is starting to run bare. The top corner unsigned is Packer Sam Shields who received a second round tender from Green Bay on Friday. Captain Munnerlyn of the Panthers is another name the Browns are linked to as well as Mike Jenkins of Dallas. Jenkins is ranked below Browns’ free agent Sheldon Brown on Scout.com’s list of free agent corners.
