There are five ideal free agents that the Cleveland Browns absolutely must target.

Before the draft in May, newly appointed general manager Ray Farmer will be tested on what players he can attract out on the open market.

Say what you want about the old Joe Banner/Michael Lombardi regime, but it did put the franchise in excellent shape when it comes to salary-cap space.

The Browns are estimated to have the third-most cap room in the NFL at roughly $45.5 million. 

This should give Cleveland ample room to re-sign its own stars in Alex Mack and T.J. Ward, as well as go after a variety of available athletes.

The following slides are not a list of simply the most talented stars from around the league looking for a new contract. This grouping will explore players that can fill key roles as starters or add to positional depth.
