Besides being in on the sweepstakes for Bengals RG Kevin Zeitler, some more offensive line related news broke Thursday morning. Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network is reporting that the team is will sign Packers starting C J.C. Tretter:
Browns working on their OL. They're working to sign G/C JC Tretter, source says. Former Packers starter at center.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 9, 2017
JC Tretter will officially be a Cleveland Brown in about five hours. That deal is getting done. Expected to be their new center.— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 9, 2017
In addition, Adam Schefter of ESPN has been reporting that Cleveland is extending the contract of LG Joel Bitonio, who would be a free agent in 2018. Two big moves would normally make you think the Browns are out when it comes to Zeitler, but Cleveland has the cap space, so you never know.
