2012 NFL Free Agents: Cleveland Browns'  5 Biggest Targets

After the departure of the once dominate Peyton Hillis, the Browns have some serious holes to fill before they have a playoff ready offense

It comes as no surprise to any Browns faithful or loyal follower of the sport, that the Browns were pretty awful offensively last season. The once-proud work horse that was Peyton Hillis was out with just about every ache or pain, the right side of the offensive line couldn't block Betty White and, as result, QB Colt McCoy hit the turf often.

When McCoy had the time to throw, he didn't have a receiver to throw to. Big names like WR/PR Josh Cribbs and WR Mohammad Massaquoi were horribly underwhelming with their ability to drop passes that would be caught by your average Pee-Wee walk on.

On defense, the Browns were more stable, posting the No. 2 pass defense in the AFC with big time defensive contributors like NFL Comeback Player of the Year D'Qwell Jackson and shutdown corner Joe Haden. On the flip side, the Cleveland Browns had the worse run defense in the AFC despite a beefy, defensive line.

If the Browns wish to do anything more than what they "accomplished" this past season, the Browns must address these crucial weak points in what could be a good up-and-coming team.
