Cleveland Browns: 4 first-round targets after Sheldon Richardson signing


The excitement of the discovery of Baker Mayfield didn't cloud general manager John Dorsey's vision that he needed to strengthen his front seven.

Earlier today, it was reported that the Browns were signing defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and later this afternoon former Ravens 2015 first round pick Breshad Perriman was put back on the payroll.

A breakdown of the Cleveland Browns' 2019 free-agent signings.

The 28-year old previously played for the Seattle Seahawks, the New York Jets and the Minnesota Vikings.

The Browns will be Richardson's fourth team in four years.

Richardson will line up opposite Larry Ogunjobi in the middle of the defensive line for new coordinator Steve Wilks. Dorsey has a good rapport with Giants GM Dave Gettleman, who has repeatedly said he didn't sign Beckham to a five-year, $90 million extension last August to trade him.

Richardson had 4.5 sacks, six tackles for loss 16 QB hits and 49 tackles last season for the Vikings.

While talented, Richardson has also run into some trouble.
