Browns Had Contacted WR Jacoby Ford Before He Signed With the Jets

Kelley L Cox-US PRESSWIRE

Free agency hasn't ended, and the Browns are putting out feelers for wide receivers.

On Tuesday, the New York Jets signed former Oakland Raiders wide receiver Jacoby Ford to a contract. What does that have to do with the Cleveland Browns? Not much...until you hear what Ford said about the Browns:

This adds to the speculation that the Browns are not done with the receiver position after signing Andrew Hawkins away from the Cincinnati Bengals a couple of weeks ago. It also has to make you wonder if the Browns were indeed interested in DeSean Jackson...although the difference in the type of contract Jackson received versus what Ford received doesn't even compare.

The Browns might have also been interested in Ford for his return abilities; at one point in his career, he was one of the better kickoff returners in the NFL.
