Projected Landing Spot: Cleveland Browns
How could we forget a group still sitting on over $50 million in top space, per Spotrac, even after accounting for this year’s rookie pool.
I competence not be means to forget about all that cheddar, though a Cleveland cornerbacks are another story altogether. Outside of Joe Haden (who hasn’t been himself in some time) they are imminently forgettable.
Right now, a Browns are a multi-coloured organisation of “who?” solely for Haden, and given all a income a group has left in a fight chest, there’s small reason not to cruise adding some maestro assistance in a secondary.
When a Browns embarked on their initial free-agent spending debauch of 2017, Jason McCourty wasn’t on a menu. The 29-year-old, who played his initial 8 seasons in Tennessee, wasn’t expelled by a Titans until mid-April.
McCourty had 67 tackles and dual interceptions a year ago, though isn’t a good cover corner. He ranked 69th in that courtesy final year, per PFF.
But McCourty offers a Browns a integrate of things that are in brief supply in a defensive backfield in Cleveland.
The initial is toughness. McCourty has never been bashful about removing unwashed in run support, pier adult over 60 tackles 5 times and aggregation an eye-popping 105 stops behind in 2011.
The second is experience. The Browns could use a dilemma conflicting Haden, who has been around a retard once or twice, and McCourty has finished 90 starts in his career.
It’s been a good offseason from a Browns, who have finished an glorious pursuit stuffing holes in both giveaway group and a draft.
McCourty would fill another one, and they have some-more than adequate top space to make it happen.
