WR additions for Cleveland?
By Tim Kavanagh
The Cleveland Browns have already used their second-round pick in this offseason's draft on Josh Gordon; the good news is that he looks like he could be a legitimate starter at the NFL level, and there are still high hopes for Greg Little as well. However, it looks like this could be a position where the club looks to make another investment in the weeks ahead.
In the opinion of Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns need to add two starting-caliber wideouts to the mix, and she believes they'll spend some of their extensive salary cap space on the position. By now, we're all well aware of the wideouts set to hit free agency if their current team doesn't re-sign or tag them, a list that includes Mike Wallace, Dwayne Bowe, Greg Jennings, Wes Welker and Danny Amendola. One other name to keep in mind: Percy Harvin, who is reportedly on the trading block. The Browns have the need for such a player, and the cap space to afford a lucrative extension.
The Browns have a mixed history when it comes to drafting WRs, but that's another potential avenue of acquisition. Stay tuned.
