The Cleveland Browns struck quickly in free agency with Desmond Bryant and Paul Kruger before executing some more conservative signings, presumably for depth. Of course as they continue to cut players like Usama Young and Chris Gocong loose, many fans wonder if the Browns were too conservative in their free agency signings with holes all over the field still. If you believe respected NFL journalist Adam Caplan, the Browns have done the right thing. When asked on Twitter what his opinion was of the Browns’ off-season, he stated the following. (The Browns) Signed a few impact guys, as expected. But this year’s free agent class was one of the worst in recent seasons, so the approach was the right one. Build through draft as much as possible. I don’t think a lot of NFL fans think in terms of where an overall free agent class ranks in terms of overall quality as much as front offices do. Either way, it’s one man’s opinion (a well-informed opinion) that the Browns’ approach was right. One thing’s for sure. Assuming Caplan’s assessment is correct, this really puts the pressure on the Browns to get some things done in the NFL draft.
