The Ravens free-agent linebacker already got some run here in the factory, as he’d be an ideal addition to linebacker room.

Bowser is coming off his best season with Baltimore, but he should still be within the Browns budget. In 2020, Bowser compiled 34 tackles, 2.0 sacks and14 quarterback hits, in addition to picking off three passes (Browns fans will remember one of those from that memorable Monday night game).

The big takeaway with Bowser is the three interceptions, as the Browns really need a linebacker who can drop into coverage.

Keep in mind, Bowser wasn’t a regular starter and those quarterback hits are something he might be able to build on with more playing time.

If I’m Andrew Berry and I’m being realistic about my current cap situation and what I’ll need to do with my early-round picks, signing the affordable Bowser would be one of the first things to get done.
