It's become a sort of tradition now in Cleveland. Every two or three years, the Browns bring in a new head coach who brings in a new coaching staff with him. The new coaching staff also brings in a new coaching philosophy which means that much of the roster is gutted in favor of players who better fit the new regimes system.
This offseason has been no different. The Browns fired head coach Eric Mangini and hired Pat Shurmur to replace him. Coach Shurmur brought in a completely new coaching staff, the west-coast offense, and a switch to the 4-3 defense.
Like clockwork, the Browns have already cut several players from the old regime and it seems likely that they will at some point be cutting even more.
Even though most of these players are past their prime and have burdensome salaries, this has still left many in the fan-base wondering who general manager Tom Heckert will be bringing in to replace them.
While these cuts free up cap space, it is widely thought that because of bad weather and a tradition of futility, Cleveland is not a very attractive free agent destination.
These are five ideas I have to make Cleveland more attractive to some of the top-tier free agents. Enjoy.
