Who are six of the best free agents the Cleveland Browns have signed since 1999?
The Cleveland Browns haven’t had much success in signing free agents since they came back to the league in 1999. They’ve had some gems here or there, and some surprises. They’ve also had a lot of busts or guys who just didn’t deliver at the level the team was hoping for.
That doesn’t mean all of the guys they’ve signed were bad, on the contrary. They’ve had some truly magnificent acquisitions during the free agency period. It just may be harder to remember the quality of the player, as the team was likely under .500 for the duration of their time on the team.
So it’s harder to always remember how good said player was during their tenure in Cleveland. That’s partially why we looked through the squads since 1999 and found some of the better acquisitions in team history.
Now, we’re only looking at six players, and they’re in no particular order. There are more than six good free agents, we’re just saying these are the six that first come to mind.
We’d also like to point out that while the likes of Joe Jurevicius and Andrew Hawkins are often considered to be in the Top 25 best free agents in team history, at least according to Browns Nation, they will not be on this list.
Players like them would not make any other franchise’s Top-Whatever list, so they won’t be on ours if and when we do a follow-up for another six signings.
