Browns: DTs and pass rushers still available in NFL free agency
The Cleveland Browns used two picks in the middle rounds of the 2023 NFL draft to bulk up the front four of their defensive line. First, they selected the big Baylor defensive tackle Siaki Ika with pick no. 98 in the draft, then they went to the edge by selecting Missouri pass rusher Isaiah McGuire in the fourth round.
However, given the nature of the Browns’ putrid run defense from a year ago, could they and defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz still look for added upgrades to the room despite adding six new faces to the roster this offseason?
Here are some interior defensive linemen and edge defenders that are still available on the open market.
