Buffalo Bills free agent offensive guard, Andy Levitre
It is not about getting a flashy name, but more on who will fit best in the Browns' young culture and thrive under their new coaching staff.
In numerous interviews both owner Jimmy Haslam and CEO Joe Banner have stated that they are about building through the draft.
That means free agency is going to be utilized to plug holes, like former GM Tom Heckert did by adding defensive ends Frostee Rucker and Juqua Parker last year.
Andy Levitre (OG)
Ideally an offensive guard gets added in both the draft and through free agency.
Buffalo Bills FA Andy Levitre is a stud OG that will be in high demand.
The 26-year-old told the Associated Press on December 27 that contract talks had not started between him and the Bills.
He also mentioned, ''I don't know if (I'm) going to be here. I don't know if it's going to be somewhere else."
This is great news for the Browns who could use Levitre's reliability (64 consecutive starts) to help solidify the O-line.
The Oregon State alum is versatile too, having spent time at tackle and center during his NFL stay in upstate New York.
Already well known as a strong pass-protector, the 305-pounder successfully executes in-line run blocking. Something running back Trent Richardson would surely be in favor of.
He is coming off of a four-year/$3.56 million deal. The Browns need to pursue him hard and lock No. 67 down long-term.
With Levitre and a well-placed draft pick at guard, this franchise will possess the best offensive line in the AFC North.
Greg Jennings (WR)
The Browns do not need a number one receiver with youngsters Josh Gordon and Greg Little developing.
This offense requires a reliable set of hands, a good attitude to lead by example and a nose for first downs.
Greg Jennings meets all of the above criteria.
Missing half the season with a groin injury left question marks in regard to whether he could return to his former high level of performance.
Scoring twice in the regular-season finale and adding another touchdown in the playoffs gives hope that the seven-year Packer can still make an impact.
At 29, he owns an impressive career average of over 15 yards per catch, and there are no locker room personality issues.
Remember how valuable Joe Jurevicius was in moving the chains on third down back during 2007?
Jennings can be that safe-bet option for whoever the starting quarterback is.
The pride of Kalamazoo, MI earned over $7 million this season. His price should dip somewhat because of age and past ailments.
Cleveland's estimated $48.9 million in salary cap room allows them to ink No. 85 to a multi-season agreement and provides a leader with Super Bowl-winning experience.
Anthony Spencer (LB)
If the Browns want to grab the best pass-rushing linebacker on the market, then open up the wallet to Anthony Spencer.
Since the Dallas Cowboys are moving to a 4-3 defensive scheme and Cleveland is switching to a 3-4 base, Spencer would be an excellent fit.
The Purdue alum set personal bests of 11 sacks and 95 tackles in 2012. He accomplished all that while missing two games.
Spencer took home $8.856 million this past season by accepting the franchise tag. Dallas will need to offer him an extension or allow the 28-year-old to test the open waters.
Being inconsistent over his career raises the risk of overpaying based on one terrific campaign.
That being said, the Browns lack quarterback-attacking monsters at LB. Spencer solves that problem and thrived in a 3-4 setup.
