The Browns made their splash in the first wave of free agency by bolstering their secondary with the additions of safety John Johnson and corner Troy Hill.

After some other signings to bolster team depth, the Browns reportedly have around $13-$14 million cap space remaining. With the draft quickly approaching though, free-agent hungry Browns fans must keep in mind that the organization has to reserve $8.9 million of cap space for money to be allocated to signing rookies.

Based off their financial status, the Browns and GM Andrew Berry will be bargain hunting, and in all likelihood, they will be sign a few more players before the start of training camp.

“Restructuring” has been a buzz word thrown around by the NFL media this offseason, but Berry hasn’t used the cap tactic, and for good reason. Restrucuring means kicking the can down the road, and Cleveland’s road the next few years will see mega-dollars zooming by to the top players already on the roster.

All of this screams bargain finds and one-year contracts, which is fine. There is no glaring need, perhaps with the exception of linebacker–and the organization won’t pay top dollar for one of those.

Here’s a look at three free agents Berry and the Browns could sign in the second wave of free agency.
