Offseason Keep, Trade or Cut Decisions for Every Cleveland Browns Starter

For non-playoff-bound teams like the Cleveland Browns, the 2011 season is nearing its close.

The Browns have just three more games left before they close out their year. 

It has been a difficult season in which to evaluate talent for the Browns; whether because we don't know what the long-term timetable for improvement is for the group and for individuals or because it's tough to judge one one player or position group independently of the influence of others.

Still, the Browns will have to do just that in only a few short months when the free-agency period begins and they have to start evaluating the talent they already have to see who stays and who goes. 

Following are some preliminary thoughts for the Browns offseason evaluations of players on who should be kept, who should be traded and who should be cut in preparation for the 2012 season. 

Note that this evaluation uses the current starters for the team. Injured players who would be starters (such as Scott Fujita) are not included in order to make room on the list for each position's current incumbent.
