3. Jedrick Wills

As a 4-2 team hoping to make a playoff push, the Browns are going to be more buyers than sellers at the deadline. They also won't risk breaking up groups with good chemistry when it's not necessary.

Jedrick Wills Jr. won't be traded without a backup plan in place, but with left tackle being an area of need, he could certianly be moved after an addition is made.

The Browns could work to bring in someone like Garrett Boles, and at that point it would make sense to move Wills for whatever we can get. In fact, that might even mean essentially paying another team to take on his contract.

The Browns would take on very little dead money by trading Wills — just a few million. If they wait for the fifth-year option to kick in, however, releasing him becomes almost impossible, facing over $10 million in dead money. Cap space is going to be at a premium in Cleveland next year, and while it's not a sexy move it could make a lot of sense to give up a day-three draft pick just to make Wills' contract someone else's problem.

Like I said above, that would be contingent on landing a new starting left tackle first of course.
