The Cleveland Browns are saving as much money as possible this offseason, so the fourth week of the XFL will be critical in talent scouting.
The Cleveland Browns made waves this week by not re-signing Joe Schobert and letting him walk in free agency. The reason reported is that the team is saving most of its funds to improve the offensive line, and to do that they need to cut some fat, so to speak. That means that the team will be looking for discounted options to fill spots on the roster.
Two names that continue to impress each and every week in the XFL is the New York Guardians’ Ben Heeney and the Seatle Sea Dragon’s Steven Johnson. Both men have shown up in four straight weeks, and both men lead their teams in tackles. It’s entirely possible that one, if not both are signed by the Browns to fill some depth.
Hopefully, the team brings in a few players to flush out the roster spots, beyond just the linebackers. Other players like Dexter McCoil, Bunmi Rotimi, Cameron Artis-Payne, and Nelson Spruce would also be huge upgrades as backups or even in some instances as starters. The team has a lot of depth issues, and the team would be wise to acquire as many XFL players as possible to find out who can help out the squad.
So let’s take a look at the action from week four of XFL’s return season and see which players have stepped up again to gain the attention of the Cleveland Browns and other NFL teams around the league.
