Earlier today, Tim Graham of the Buffalo News reported that free agent wide receiver David Nelson is scheduled to visit the Cleveland Browns on Thursday:

Nelson is a very compelling receiver. He played with Tim Tebow in college before being signed as an undrafted free agent by the Bills in 2010. He caught 31 passes for 353 yards and 3 touchdowns in rookie season, and followed that up with 61 catches for 658 yards and 5 touchdowns in 2011. Unfortunately, he suffered a torn ACL in Week 1 of the 2012 season. He was a restricted free agent this offseason, but the Bills decided not to tender him. At 6'5", 214 pounds, Nelson would give Brandon Weeden a big target at the wide receiver position. That's the same height that Joe Jurevicius was listed at.
In other receiver news, free agent Mohamed Massaquoi visited the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, according to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun:

Lastly, wide receiver Domenik Hixon, who the Browns reportedly had a "mild interest" in, left the Panthers without a contract, according to a Panthers local beat reporter:

With the Browns clearing cap space and the news of free agents coming in for visits, it certainly sounds like Cleveland plans on signing somebody to complement the current group.
