Browns have interest in multiple receivers

The Cleveland Browns are looking to remake their receiver room, showing interest in multiple players.

If there is one area on the Cleveland Browns roster that was due for a makeover it was the receiving group. The good news is that the team is reportedly interest in multiple players to add to their roster. An article in The Athletic (subscription required) specifically names pending free agents Chris Godwin, Mike Williams, and Allen Robinson. This is in addition to keeping close tabs on the Amari Cooper situation in Dallas.

This group of receivers will consider the quarterback situation of every team they speak with. Cleveland has stated that they intend to have Baker Mayfield be their starter next season. Mayfield has proven to be an inconsistent quarterback with other teams that are also in the receiver market fielding better options at the most important position in the game. When comparing their potential landing spots this will be a factor that comes into play. It is not a stretch to think that a receiver would rather catch passes from a quarterback with a longer record of success than two half season stretches which look like outliers.

The midseason dumping of Odell Beckham Jr. created a void last season and did not magically fix their broken passing attack. Jarvis Landry is due a large salary next season and barring an unforeseen contract restructure, he is out as well. This leaves Cleveland with Donovan Peoples-Jones and Anthony Schwartz as their top two receivers at the moment and they have yet to show they are able to take on a prominent role. At the end of the day Cleveland needs receiver help in the worst way. Whether anyone significant wants to come to the Browns with Mayfield as the starting quarterback will be the question that needs to be answered.
