New Orleans Saints: A look at three potential bidders for Andrus Peat
Number Three: The Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns were a healthy offensive line away from a spot in the playoffs this past season.
The Browns don’t have a ton of cap space ($49.5 million) but rebuilding their offensive line needs to be a priority. All the pieces are there in Cleveland: a franchise quarterback, an elite receiving corps, and a dominant defense.
The Browns really only needed two things; an offensive line and a new head coach. They hired Kevin Stefanski as the new head coach and adding Andrus Peat to their offensive line would be huge.
Peat started 60 of his 65 career games in New Orleans and was always an above-average blocker although he seemingly took a step back at point this season. He has exceptional speed for his size and bringing a veteran presence into the Cleveland locker room could be beneficial.
Peat stays out of trouble and would fit well in the culture in Cleveland. Andrus could opt to take a little less money and compete by joining a team like the Browns.
