List of the Cleveland Browns' Free Agents

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Free agency will officially begin on March 9th at 4:00 PM ET. The players below will have their contracts expire if the Cleveland Browns do not do anything by March 9th:

Unrestricted Free Agent

  • WR Travis Benjamin
  • RT Mitchell Schwartz
  • ILB Craig Robertson
  • ILB Tank Carder
  • FS Tashaun Gipson
  • CB Johnson Bademosi

Restricted Free Agent

These are for players who have at least three years of accrued service in the NFL (i.e. 6 games or more on the roster or IR). The Browns can choose to place a 1st round tender, 2nd round tender, or original round tender on each player. Over the Cap estimated the tenders to be $3.582 million for the 1st round tender, $2.516 million for the 2nd round tender, and $1.647 million for original round tenders. These values will be set in stone once the 2016 salary cap is established. Another team can sign a player you place a tender on, but they would owe that team the corresponding draft pick. If these players are not tendered by the start of free agency, they revert to unrestricted free agents.

  • QB Pat Devlin
  • WR Terrelle Pryor
  • OL Austin Pasztor
  • OLB Scott Solomon
  • S Don Jones

Exclusive-Rights Free Agent

The ERFA label applies to players who have less than three accrued seasons in the NFL (i.e. 6 games or more on the roster or IR). Under the ERFA rules, the Browns could offer these players a one-year tender for $600,000, $525,000, or $450,000 based on tenured years in the league, which is equivalent to the minimum salary for a player with that number of accrued seasons. If the Browns make an offer to an ERFA, no other team would be able to sign the player.

  • RB Raheem Mostert
  • WR Darius Jennings
  • OL Darrian Miller
  • OL Kaleb Johnson
  • NT Jamie Meder
  • K Travis Coons

Over the next several days, we will do a free agent review for each of these players, determining whether we feel they should be retained for the 2016 season. We will also conduct a poll on each player.
