Cleveland Derrick Kindred Jersey , needing depth on defensive line, could look to the three-time All-Pro for help." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesHorizontal - WhiteDawgs EDTShareTweetShareShareReport: Browns are on Gerald McCoy’s “short list” of teamsKim Klement-USA TODAY SportsThe Cleveland Browns are reportedly on the “short list” of teams that defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is considering.That is according to Mary Kay Cabot at, who cites a league source as saying that the Browns “intrigue” McCoy and that he will be visiting Cleveland in the very near future to talk with general manager John Dorsey.McCoy will reportedly be in Cleveland on Friday to talk with the Browns, according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo: The Browns have reportedly had their eye on McCoy for a while now, but were reluctant to enter into trade talks as it was widely expected across the league that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would have to release the three-time All-Pro defensive tackle due to salary cap issues.The inevitable finally became reality on Tuesday when Tampa Bay “mutually parted ways” with McCoy, who made six Pro Bowl appearances in his nine seasons with the Buccaneers. The veteran is now studying his options, and while almost every team in the league has been linked to him, Cabot reports that McCoy is only considering three or four teams, a group that in addition to the Browns includes the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals - and may make a decision in the next few weeks.The Browns could certainly use McCoy’s help Myles Garrett Color Rush Jersey , even after signing defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson in free agency. A lack of quality depth last season led the team to overwork the starters, most notably defensive end Myles Garrett and defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi:The 31-year-old McCoy might be a bit older than one would like to see in a free agent, but he has continued to be a productive player, as points out:The Browns would seem to be appealing as they are a team on the rise, which would be a refreshing change for McCoy, who played on teams in Tampa that finished in last place in the NFC South Division seven times in his nine seasons.If McCoy is willing to accept a reduced role, creating a defensive tackle rotation of McCoy, Richardson and Ogunjobi would create a nice middle of the defensive line for the Browns. Cleveland Browns cornerback Denzel Ward had an impressive rookie season after being the No. 4 overall selection in the 2018 NFL Draft. Ward was the Browns top cornerback from the moment he walked on the practice field, and finished the season as the second-best rookie cornerback , according to Pro Football Focus:While that is the good news, the bad news is that Ward also missed three games, and parts of two others, after suffering a concussion against the Houston Texans on December 2 and again against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 23. Which makes it seem a bit odd that he is planning to take the field on Sunday in Orlando for the most meaningless game on the NFL schedule - the annual Pro Bowl. But that is exactly what Ward plans to do, as he explained on Friday to the club’s in-house radio show, Cleveland Browns Daily (via Pro Bowl is not an all-out affair, of course, as no one wants to get hurt and the hitting is minimal. But given the concussion issue, we wouldn’t mind seeing Ward enjoy the experience from the sidelines on Sunday afternoon.Ward is the sixth rookie in franchise history to make the Pro Bowl Joe Thomas Jersey , according to ESPN, joining left tackle Joe Thomas (2007), linebacker Chip Banks (1983), running back Greg Pruitt (who made it as a kick returner in 1973), wide receiver Paul Warfield (1965) and running back Jim Brown (1957).Ward is one of four Browns players on the Pro Bowl roster, joining wide receiver Jarvis Landry, left guard Joel Bitonio and defensive end Myles Garrett.The Pro Bowl will be televised by ESPN on Sunday at 3 p.m.
