With less than two weeks to go before the regular season begins, it's getting to be crunch time for the Browns as they sort out any remaining roster issues they have going into their final preseason game.
The Browns' front office did an excellent job of filling in small gaps in the roster thus far, but injuries, a few players turning in disappointing performances and most importantly, depth issues, have left a few areas of the team looking remarkably thin and in need of some additional help.
The roster cuts from other teams thus far haven't put much back out on the open market that would be particularly useful to the Browns (or really to anyone, for that matter), but desperate times call for desperate measures, and the Browns could use some extra help at LB, in the secondary and on the offensive line, however minimal it might be.
Obviously the Browns can't bring in too many additional players, as they have some difficult decisions to make themselves regarding their next round of cuts, but they may need to balance out a couple of positions where they're a little overloaded with depth with others where their options are very, very thin.
Following are current free agents by position whom the Browns might benefit from adding to the team at the 11th hour. Please be advised that due to the limited options among players recently released, I have also included free agents who have yet to be signed by any team in 2011 who might fit the bill.
There are many more like these guys out there, so if you're eying someone specific, be sure to leave your own nominees for available players Cleveland should consider signing in the comments below!
