Oh. My. Goodness.

The Cleveland Browns are going to complete their magical day of free agency on their offensive line with the addition of Bengals RG Kevin Zeitler, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The 5-year, $60 million deal with $31.5 million guaranteed would make him the highest-paid guard in NFL history. He was my top free agent I coveted, and we almost nailed the amount of money he would get.

Now, the Browns’ starting offensive line for 2017 is shaping up to be LT Joe Thomas, LG Joel Bitonio, C J.C. Tretter, RG Kevin Zeitler, and then a competition at right tackle between John Greco, Cameron Erving, and Shon Coleman.
