2. Slyvester Williams

Speaking of experienced lineman, Sylvester Williams is another name to keep in mind.

Williams is a 2013 first-round pick who has bounced around the past couple of seasons. He’s really a true nose tackle, but would easily fit in as a tackle in the Browns 4-3 base.

Williams had some nice moments while in a Chargers uniform a season ago, and that’s what you want from your back-up defensive tackle.

When Sheldon Richardson and Larry Ogunjobi need a break, Williams is a experienced veteran capable of excelling in flashes.

As mentioned with Pako, that might be the best you can hope for when excavating through the remaining free agents. He had five tackles in five games, but he’s someone capable of generating pressure up the middle.

Williams spent the first four years of his career in Denver, before landing in Tennessee for a season. From there he landed in Detroit and Miami for the 2018 season, before catching on with the Chargers last season.
