The “Hard Knocks” staff must be giving themselves fist bumps right about now.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Cleveland Browns will be giving free agent cornerback Adam Jones a tryout this Friday:

Cleveland is also scheduled to host cornerback Bashaud Breeland for a visit on Friday if the Colts don’t sign him before then.
Jones is getting up there in age at 34-years-old. He started nine games in 2017 after being suspended for Week 1 and then ending the season on IR with a groin injury. He has a history with head coach Hue Jackson, but most fans will want the team to stay far, far away from Jones’ on- and off-the-field distractions that get him into trouble.
Jones has played 11 seasons in the NFL with 139 games played (102 starts), 16 interceptions (2 for touchdowns), 7 forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries, 3 sacks and 426 tackles. He played eight years with the Bengals who failed to pick up his contract option this offseason, thus sending him into free agency. This is the first reported workout for Jones this offseason since he parted ways with Cincinnati.
