Cleveland Browns Free Agent Review: TE Greg Estandia

We are currently in process of doing brief reviews of all of the free agents on the Cleveland Browns. Today, we take a look at an injured tight end from a year ago.

WR Greg Estandia

How and When He Joined the Browns: You might not realize it, but Estandia actually joined the Browns during the 2009 campaign and caught 4 passes for 45 yards. That came at a time when the Browns were shuffling through guys at the tight end position due to injuries; remember they did not have Ben Watson then. Prior to that, he had been with the Jacksonville Jaguars for three years.

Productivity Level Last Season:  There wasn't any because Estandia was placed on the injured reserve in July before the start of the season. I'm still not clear what injury he had as the specifics were not reported at the time.

Why Keeping Him Could Make Sense: You could say the Browns are in need of one blocking tight end after releasing Robert Royal. Watson, Evan More, and Jordan Cameron are your receiving tight ends. Estandia has great size at 6-8, 265 pounds and is considered more of a blocking tight end, so he would seem to fit that role.

What the Browns Should Do: Once again, this is a situation where there is not a ton of allegiance toward Estandia. Before the locking, the team already re-signed tight end Alex Smith to a one-year deal, so he can fill the role of the blocking tight end. This seems like a position the Browns are already set at, and with Estandia missing all of last year, I'm not sure there is anything special he can really offer to the team next season.

Now it's your turn -- vote in the poll below on whether or not the team should try to re-sign Greg Estandia!
