Browns Interested In Eric Decker?

The Browns appear to have some level of interest in wide receiver Eric Decker, as the club has “done some work” on the free agent pass-catcher, according to Albert Breer of Decker (Vertical)

Cleveland already made one addition to its receiving corps this offseason, inking former Rams wideout Kenny Britt to a four-year deal, but as Mary Kay Cabot of recently noted, the Browns have made inquiries on nearly every free agent receiver that has hit the market in the past several months. The club’s interest in now-Raven Jeremy Maclin is indicative of that strategy, although Cleveland never set up a visit with Maclin before he signed with Baltimore.

At present, Britt and 2016 first-round pick Corey Coleman are the Browns’ starting wideouts, and while the team has a number of intriguing options further down its depth chart, Cleveland’s pass-catching group is short on experience. Like Coleman, Ricardo Louis, Rashard Higgins, and Jordan Payton all entered the league in 2016, while Mario Alford, James Wright and Rannell Hall all have limited NFL exposure.

Decker, then, would offer the Browns another veteran receiver to play alongside Britt. The 30-year-old Decker has been linked to a number of clubs this offseason, including the Titans, with whom he met yesterday. The Broncos, however, areĀ notĀ interested in a reunion with Decker, while the Ravens are unlikely to sign another wideout after landing Maclin.

      The Browns needs some experience at the position. I hope they sign him. Hue is stubborn though. He rarely sees a QB or a WR that he doesn’t think he can coach up, so the stable of young receivers may be what he wants to go with. If that’s the case, i hope he has assurances that he will be around for the ’18 season.

    He goes to the Browns it’s because he has no choice. No QB would destroy his value.

    With the first pick in the 2018 NFL draft the Cleveland browns take …..? & I thought the Bulls coaching and leadership was terrible:)

      Gonna be more like the Bears or 49ers picking first. And everyone knows the Jets are now the worst-run organization.
