The Browns are getting better.
That’s how the PFT staff sees it, anyway.
Cleveland checks in at No. 22 in our preseason power rankings, compiled by a vote of PFT’s writers. Overall, that’s a jump of nine spots from a season ago. As far as the AFC goes, the Browns are 10th in our rankings after being 15th entering 2013.
Much of the summer focus on the Browns figures to fall on their quarterback competition, with rookie Johnny Manziel’s progress the biggest storyline of all. However, Manziel wasn’t the only major roster addition the Browns made in the offseason. The club was active in free agency, signing linebacker Karlos Dansby, safety Donte Whitner, tailback Ben Tate, offensive guard/tackle Paul McQuistan and wide receivers Andrew Hawkins, Nate Burleson and Miles Austin.
This leads us to our poll question: which free agent signing will have the biggest impact for the Browns in 2014? Share your comments and vote, vote and vote again. You need something to do in the afterglow of LeBron James returning home, right?
