It seems like the Linebacker position has been a position of need since the Browns took the field with Tim Couch at QB. This year is no different. The need was intensified by the trade of former first rounder Kamerion Wimbley to the Raiders in the off season. The Browns added Scott Fujita through free agency, and Chris Gocong from Philadelphia through the trade that brought in Sheldon Brown and saw Alex Hall go to the Eagles. Gocong played outside in the 4-3, but is more likely to be an inside backer in the 3-4 system. The Browns still need an outside backer that could possibly play a little DE as well.
