2. Jason Peters could make Cleveland Browns OL better
It seems less likely now, but the addition of Jason Peters could give the Browns five viable Pro Bowl candidates on the offensive line.
I don’t think this will happen after hearing Bill Callahan gush over 10th overall pick Jedrick Wills, but it’s something that shouldn’t be overlooked in fairness to the rookie.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left Wills without a true offseason plan, meaning there was no rookie camp, mini camp and there won’t likely be any OTAs, either.
He’s been working with the Browns virtually, but who knows what that really means? We all think he can make the switch from right tackle to left tackle, but if there’s a hiccup in Training Camp, it’s going to be “Uh-Oh” heard around greater Cleveland.
Signing the 38-year old veteran would afford Wills the luxury of breaking into the league at right guard. As previously mentioned, the Browns have given out a fair share of one-year deals this offseason.
If they could get Peters on a deal like this, why not make the move?
Next year, Wills can move to the blind side with a year under his belt, while Peters, who may not be elite, but it still pretty good, holds down the job for 2020.
