The Cleveland Browns' 2012 offseason wish list is long, just as one would expect for a team coming off of a disappointing 4-11 season.
Of the many needs the Browns have, a playmaking wide receiver is near the top, and for a lot of fans, it's the No. 1 must-have for the Browns before they start their 2012 season.
While I acknowledge that this is definitely an area where the Browns desperately need help, I wouldn't call it the top priority need for the team this season. There are other things—solidifying the right side of the offensive line, bringing in a durable, productive running back, finding a linebacker who provides a killer pass rush—that I would see as more important.
However, receivers do make for a more interesting topic of discussion than, say, offensive tackles, and there's no denying the Browns need one who is a marked improvement of what they have in the stable at the moment, so the topic is worth exploring.
Following are options the Browns might consider at WR through both the draft and free agency. Realistically, Cleveland might get one (if that) of these players, but it's always best to pursue all the options before committing to one.
Please share your thoughts on other receivers, be they draftees or free agents, who you think the Browns ought to consider pursuing in the comments below!
