The Cleveland Browns have their sights set on a couple of top free agents as they look to continue improving their secondary.
Cleveland, of course, has already started addressing its need in the secondary. Last week, the team agreed to acquire Damarious Randall from the Green Bay Packers, with Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reporting the three-year defensive back will move from cornerback to free safety.
In 2017, Johnson had 65 tackles, 14 passes defended, two interceptions, one forced fumble and one touchdown for the Los Angeles Rams. He was also voted a team captain, and it was just three seasons ago when he had a career-high seven picks and 17 passes defended.
Cleveland shouldn't have to worry about being outbid by anyone if it makes a serious run at Johnson or Breeland; the Browns have $77.8 million in cap space, the second-most in the league, per Spotrac.
Cleveland ranked in the middle of the pack last season at 230.3 passing yards allowed per game but 31st with just seven interceptions. Only five teams allowed more touchdowns through the air than the Browns (28), but part of that can be attributed to Cleveland's offense turning the ball over too frequently.
Trading for Randall looks like it was just the first step in improving the pass defense.
