Berry needs to determine what to do with at least a couple of veteran players with big contracts, find at least two starting-caliber wide receivers, fix the defensive tackle position, decide which of the team’s free agents are worthy of a new deal, and build his board for the 2022 NFL Draft.
Shrine Bowl and Senior Bowl
Teams will get another opportunity to take a look at some of this year’s draft class at the Shrine Bowl, which takes place February 3 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, and the Senior Bowl, which takes place February 5 at Hancock Whitney Stadium in Mobile, Alabama.
However, players are not allowed to actually sign a contract with a new team until 4 p.m. on March 16.
Depending on where you look, and based on the NFL office completing a final accounting of the salary cap numbers, the Browns will have around $24.9 million to $27.6 million in available cap space.
Cleveland’s restricted free agents are:
- Stephen Carlson, tight end
- D’Ernest Johnson, running back
- Chase McLaughlin, placekicker
- Ifeadi Odenigbo, defensive end
2022 NFL Draft
The NFL Draft will take place from April 28 to April 30 in Las Vegas.
