8. Sign Josh Lambo

With Josh Lambo hitting the market, the Browns can add a kicker who can be a deep threat from 50-yards out.

The 28-year-old was 4-of-5 from 50 yards this season and he connected on a long of 57 yards. On attempts between 40-49 yards, Lambo was 3-of-4 while booting 19 successful extra-point tries on 20 attempts.

By signing the four-year veteran, the Browns can be really be aggressive in getting themselves a player who can be a weapon, not a safety plug.

Greg Joseph did OK when signed to replace Zane Gonzalez, but there’s still a lot of room for improvement at the position.

Joseph should be given the opportunity to win the job in Training Camp, but that doesn’t mean he should head into the year with job security.

Mike Nugent, 36, will be a free agent. The former Buckeye was 6-of-6 this past season for the Raiders, and 4-of-4 on extra-point attempts. Nugent only appears in three games, as he sat waiting for a call.

You’ve got to wonder what the Browns’ season would’ve been like if he had been around from the start of the season.

Phil Dawson is still around, too. He’s coming off the worst two year stretch in his career and things didn’t end well with his last team, the Arizona Cardinals. The guy who replaced him? Zane Gonzalez.

Dawson, now 43, knows how to kick in FirstEnergy stadium, and at the very least, he could provide competition in camp.
