NFL free agency: Predicting 6 Browns veterans who won’t be in 2024 training camp

The Cleveland Browns had an exceptional season in 2023. They not only made the playoffs with an 11-5-0 record, but they secured the highest Wild Card seed with the #5 slot. Plus, they defeated the Number 1 seeds in both conferences by beating the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.

At one point towards the end of the season, there was a formula devised where they could actually capture the AFC North Division crown. At another juncture, it was revealed that the Browns could get the Number 1 seed but needed quite a bit of help. In any regard, it was a successful season despite getting taken to the woodshed in their 45-14 playoff loss to the Houston Texans who would later get embarrassed themselves in their post-season defeat.

Now, the process of the off-season begins for Cleveland.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl and other college All-Star games are on the agenda to scout. Various players will need to be signed to reserve contracts to retain their rights. Designation of franchise or transition players will occur. The Combine is February 27-March 4.

The free agency period will commence in mid-March with the college draft the following month. Both of these events will become the main focus for every NFL club to fill in problem areas and gain improvement. The league’s annual meetings are March 24-27.

Also, during the off-season, Browns GM Andrew Berry will need to address his team’s own free-agent contracts. Which players will the club offer? Will these be multi-year deals or extensions? Which athletes will they re-sign?

This 2024 list for the Browns has 26 pending free agents. As chief negotiator for the club, Berry has exclusive negotiating rights for extensions with every player on this list until the league year which begins on March 13.

Here at Dawgs By Nature, our writers came up with a list of players we think will not be invited back to training camp this season. That double-digit list was then whittled down. We offer up six veterans we believe won’t be retained for the 2024 season.
