Buried in a recent piece by CBS Sports’ Jason LaCanfora is a few lines which Cleveland Browns fans would likely find intriguing. With a boat load of cap space (roughly $30 million), Joe Banner’s Browns are already rumored to be in the mix for Baltimore Ravens quarterback — and reigning Super Bowl MVP — Joe Flacco. If this was not enough for those in search of play-making skill players, La Canfora has you covered. “The Browns have about $30 million in space and will be big spenders under new owner Jimmy Haslam and team president Joe Banner” writes LaCanfora. ”Many in the Steelers organization believe [wide receiver Mike] Wallace will end up with their division rivals in Cleveland (Haslam was a former minority owner of the Steelers).” The Steelers are not expected to retain their high-impact receiver on the heels of last year’s holdout. Two weeks prior to the regular season, the 26-year old opted to play under the one-year, $2.7 million tender. He caught a career-high 72 passes for 1,193 yards and eight touchdowns in 2011 and followed that up with 64 receptions for 836 yards and eight touchdowns through 15 games in 2012. The Browns are not expected to re-sign wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi or tight end Ben Watson, so an addition to the receiving corps is not out of the question. Wallace was a third-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft out of Ole Miss. [Related: How the Browns could win a Joe Flacco negotiation]
