The Cleveland Browns have loads of talent on their roster. Over the course of multiple general managers and coaching staffs, the Browns have accumulated players that many teams would love to have.

With that comes the need to sign contract extensions, if possible, with those talented players. Gone are the days when only a few players (Joe Thomas, Joe Haden, Joel Bitonio) get second and third contracts from the team. Instead, the Browns have multiple guys coming up on free agency.

The biggest is quarterback Baker Mayfield. His 2020 season locked him in as the team’s quarterback of the future and, likely, a very large contract.

After Mayfield, the Browns still have a number of players that could get extended sooner than later. Nick Chubb has been the engine of the offense in his three seasons and his contract ends this year. Wyatt Teller and Ronnie Harrison both had good seasons in 2020 for the Browns and are set to be free agents while Denzel Ward, like Mayfield, has two years left on his rookie deal.

Of those four, which one is the most important extension for the Browns to get done?

All four players have value in their own right but positional value, depth on the roster, age, experience and cost could all play a role in how you voted. In the end, the Browns hope to retain as much talent as they can. Finally, a good problem for the Cleveland football team.
