5. Mark Barron
The Browns recent moves have shown what they think of the linebacking corps and the value it provides to a roster. They clear priorities are on the edge and in the secondary.
Well, having ignored the position group has caught up with the franchise, as the injury to Mack Wilson looks to be one the Browns might not be able to cover up.
Under John Dorsey, the Browns knew their linebacking corps was in trouble, which is why the team tried to use three safeties and two linebackers.
Well, what if they could deploy a “dime backer,” or basically a linebacker to come in on 3rd downs that would help in passing situations.
Enter Mark Barron. He’s 31, but logged 70 percent of the Steelers’ defensive snaps last season. Plus, he should be affordable.
