  • Joshua Dobbs Joins Browns

    The Cleveland Browns have agreed on a contract with free-agent quarterback Joshua Dobbs. It's a one-year deal, but the salary has not been announced yet. The 28-year-old was given his first chance to start last season. He threw for 411 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in two starts with the Titans in 2022. The expectation is that he'll compete with Kellen Mond to earn the backup role to Deshaun Watson.

  • Browns To Sign TE Jordan Akins

    Jordan Akins visited the Browns on Friday, and the veteran tight end will not leave Cleveland without a contract. The Browns are signing Deshaun Watson‘s former Texans teammate, according to his agency (on Twitter). The five-year veteran played with Watson for three seasons and has spent his entire regular-season career in Houston. The Texans reacquired […]

  • Jordan Akins Visiting The Browns

    Free-agent tight end Jordan Akins is visiting the Cleveland Browns, according to a source. It was impossible to trust any pass-catcher from the Houston Texans last year, but Akins had 37 catches (54 targets), a career-high 495 receiving yards and a career-high five touchdowns in 15 games (three starts) in Houston in 2022 in his fifth year in the league. The Browns already have tight ends David Njoku and Harrison Bryant, though, so he'll be even further from the fantasy radar if he signs in Cleveland. Akins has accumulated 151 catches for 1,755 yards and eight touchdowns on 216 targets in 73 games (26 starts) in his five seasons with the Texas to this point in his career.

  • Browns Signing DT Trysten Hill

    The Browns continue to reshape their defensive line, signing former Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

  • Browns Sign Defensive Tackle Maurice Hurst

    The Cleveland Browns signed free-agent defensive tackle Maurice Hurst to an undisclosed deal on Wednesday, according to a source. Hurst played in only two games in his lone season for the San Francisco 49ers in 2021 due to a torn biceps and didn't play at all in the NFL last year. The 27-year-old was originally a fifth-round selection by the Las Vegas Raiders back in 2018. In his four seasons in the NFL, Hurst has totaled just 78 tackles (53 solo), eight sacks, nine tackles for loss, 17 QB hits, one interception, seven passes defensed, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 42 games (17 starts). He will be hoping to stay healthy in a depth role for the Browns in 2023.

  • Browns Release Jadeveon Clowney

    The Cleveland Browns have released defensive end Jadeveon Clowney on Wednesday. The organization will eat $1.5 million in dead cap by releasing Clowney with a post-June 1 designation. The former No. 1 overall pick put together a lackluster season for the Browns in 2022. He finished with 28 tackles, four tackles for loss, and two sacks in 12 games. He'll be entering his age-30 season, but still should have something left in the tank. There should be multiple suitors for Clowney in free agency, but his inconsistent play is going to hurt his chances of a long term deal.

  • Juan Thornhill Joins Browns

    The Cleveland Browns have signed free-agent safety Juan Thornhill on Wednesday. The two sides have agreed to a three-year, $21 million contract. The 27-year-old leaves the Kansas City Chiefs after being a reliable contributor for the past four seasons. Thornhill is a proven playmaker and a useful option against the run. This isn't the most flashy signing in free agency, but certainly a smart move by the Browns. Thornhill will be an upgrade to this Browns secondary heading into 2023.

  • Browns Agree With Sione Takitaki On One-Year Deal

    The Cleveland Browns and linebacker Sione Takitaki agreed to terms on a one-year deal for just under $2.6 million on Tuesday, according to a source. It's a good deal for a player that tore his ACL in December as he returns to the Browns. Takitaki is planning to be back close to the start of the 2023 regular season. The 27-year-old played in 12 games (eight starts) in his fourth year with Cleveland, finishing with a career-high 71 tackles (36 solo), one sack, four tackles for loss and a forced fumble. There's a good chance that Takitaki won't be 100 percent ready for Week 1.

  • Browns Re-Sign Center Ethan Pocic

    The Cleveland Browns re-signed center Ethan Pocic to an undisclosed three-year deal on Monday, according to a source. Pocic was originally a second-round selection by the Seattle Seahawks in 2017. He spent the first five years of his NFL career in Seattle before joining the Browns in 2022, where he started 13 games for the team. The 27-year-old became Cleveland's starter when Nick Harris suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason. With Harris coming back from injury in 2023, Pocic will have to battle to keep the starting gig in training camp this summer.

  • Texans Give Chase Winovich A One-Year Deal

    The Houston Texans agreed with free-agent defensive end Chase Winovich on a one-year, $2 million deal on Monday. After three years with the New England Patriots to begin his NFL career, Winovich spent last season with the Cleveland Browns, where he recorded 20 tackles (14 solo), one sack and a pass defensed in only eight games (two starts). The 27-year-old former third-round pick by the Patriots in 2019 has 105 tackles (70 solo), 11 tackles for loss, 26 QB hits, one interception, three passes defensed, one forced fumble and 12 sacks in four NFL seasons and 53 games (11 starts). Fantasy managers can ignore him in IDP leagues.

  • QB Jacoby Brissett Drawing Interest From Bucs, Eagles

    Veteran quarterback Jacoby Brissett was signed to a one-year contract in Cleveland a year ago for the sole purpose of filling in until Deshaun Watson was free from his suspension.

  • Browns Expected To Sign Dalvin Tomlinson

    The Cleveland Browns are expected to sign former Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson, landing a coveted big-time defender on the first day of free agency. Tomlinson will receive a four-year deal worth $57 million, including $27.5 million guaranteed. In his two seasons with the Vikings, Tomlinson had five sacks, 37 solo tackles, five tackles for loss, 17 QB hits, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in 29 regular season starts. The 29-year-old was limited to a career-low 523 defensive snaps in 2022 due to a calf injury that caused him to miss four games. Tomlinson will give the Browns a strong interior presence to pair with All-Pro pass-rusher Myles Garrett on the outside.

  • Browns Signing Ogbonnia Okoronkwo Monday

    The Cleveland Browns are signing Houston Texans free-agent pass-rusher Ogbonnia Okoronkwo to a three-year deal with a maximum value of $22 million on Monday with a base value of $19 million, according to sources. He'll receive $12.5 million guaranteed. In his lone season with the Texans in 2022, Okoronkwo had career-highs in tackles (44 combined) and sacks (five) while also adding 32 solo tackles, nine tackles for loss, 11 QB hits and a forced fumble in 17 games (eight starts) in his fourth NFL season. The 27-year-old pass-rusher was originally a fifth-round selection by the Los Angeles Rams in 2018. Okoronkwo should be expected to fill a rotational role in Cleveland alongside All-Pro pass-rusher Myles Garrett.

  • Browns, OLB Obo Okoronkwo Agree To Deal

  • Browns Restructure Deshaun Watson's Contract

    The Cleveland Browns restructured quarterback Deshaun Watson's contract on Monday, creating almost $36 million in salary cap space for the 2023 season, according to a source. The cap conversion gives Cleveland plenty of room to work in free agency, which kicks off on Wednesday. Watson made his return in 2022 and started six games for the Browns after serving his suspension. He didn't really impress anything, throwing for 1,102 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions with a career-low 58.2% completion percentage. Nobody should have been expecting him to light it up after such a long layoff, but it remains to be seen if he can rebound in his second year in Cleveland in 2023.

  • C Ethan Pocic Likely To Return To Browns?

    In 2022, the Browns planned to have Nick Harris operate as their starting center, and they added veteran Ethan Pocic on a modest one-year pact as Harris insurance. That turned out to be a savvy acquisition, as Harris suffered a season-ending knee injury in August, and Pocic stepped in to start 13 games — he […]

  • D'Ernest Johnson Unlikely To Re-Sign With Browns

    According to Tony Grossi of ESPN, running back D'Ernest Johnson isn't expected to re-sign with the Browns. The 27-year-old, who re-signed with Cleveland on a one-year deal in June 2022, has played his entire career with the Browns. However, he hasn't been a consistent contributor, amassing 738 yards and three touchdowns off 141 attempts (64 total games). Nevertheless, Johnson may land on another team, although he isn't anticipated to do anything to benefit fantasy managers, no matter where he ends up next.
