Solid starters

So, who isn’t on the list? Good question. There are three names that, barring any contract extension disagreements, are names you can expect to get a second contract. We’ve seen Andrew Berry be very shrewd in the past with Browns players who want bigger deals, so yes, there remains a chance these three names don’t get a second contract, but it won’t be based on their talent.

Those three players who are safe for the next year are the 10th overall pick in the draft, Jedrick Wills, the 115th pick Harrison Bryant and the 187th pick, Donovan Peoples-Jones.

Wills isn’t a star, and he likely won’t be a huge factor beyond just being a starter, but he’s not a bad player. You certainly wouldn’t move on from him unless he’s asking for a price that he hasn’t earned. The problem with Wills, however, is that with the success of Tristan Wirfs, his pick looks botched in comparison. Both men were right tackles in college, and both men could easily slide in at left, but Wills isn’t nearly as quick as Wirfs and that’s caused him to get beat more than he should.

He isn’t going to get cut, but I doubt he’ll be a franchise legend.

For Peoples-Jones and Bryant, they’re both in the same position. They’re both solid options who can help the offense but neither have really shown to be effective enough to be starters on a team that is looking to compete. Maybe if they were in Detroit or Jacksonville, where they’d have more reps dedicated to them, they could produce more often but they aren’t on a rebuilding team. They’re on a playoff team.

So it’s likely that this is the best they’ll be.
