The Browns did not sign any players prior to the start of free agency and have released just one so far this offseason, giving the Browns ample cash to do practically anything they want following the start of the free-agency period.
March 13: LS Christian Yount given exclusive-rights free agent tender. One-year deal; $555,000. The Browns are now around $29-30 million under the salary cap.
March 13: WR Jordan Norwood given exclusive-rights free agent tender. One-year deal; $555,000.
March 13: RB Chris Ogbonnaya re-signed. Two-year deal; financials undisclosed.
March 13: LB Quentin Groves acquired via free agency. Two-year deal worth $2.8 million. Assuming he makes $1.4 million in 2013, the Browns are about $32 million under the salary cap.
March 12: DT Desmond Bryant acquired via free agency. Five-year deal worth $34 million and $15 million guaranteed according to Albert Breer of NFL Network. He should make around $6 to $7 million in 2013 (and likely no less than $3 million).
March 12: LB Paul Kruger acquired via free agency. Five-year deal worth $41 million; CBS Sports' Jason LaCanfora says $20 million of that is guaranteed. At $8 million per year, the Browns' 2013 salary cap figure is now $38 million under the $123 limit.
February 5: DE Frostee Rucker released. 2013 cap hit: $4 million in dead money.
