Free agency will officially begin on March 13th at 4:00 PM ET. The players below will have their contracts expire if the Cleveland Browns do not do anything by March 13th:

Unrestricted Free Agent

These are players who the Browns have no roster control over, other than exclusive negotiating rights up until a few days before free agency.

  • QB Tyrod Taylor
  • WR Breshad Perriman
  • WR Rod Streater
  • OT Greg Robinson
  • OL Earl Watford
  • DE Carl Davis
  • LB Ray-Ray Armstrong
  • CB E.J. Gaines
  • CB Phillip Gaines

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.

Tender estimates for 2019 are not yet available, but Over the Cap estimates them to be were $4.429 million for the 1st round tender, $3.110 million for the 2nd round tender, and $2.035 million for original round tenders. Another team can sign a player with a tender, but they would owe that team the corresponding draft pick if the team opts not to match the offer. If these players are not tendered by the start of free agency, they revert to unrestricted free agents.

  • WR Rashard Higgins
  • FB Orson Charles
  • DB Briean Boddy-Calhoun
  • CB Juston Burris

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, minimum salary tender for $495,000, $570,000, or $645,000 based on credited seasons (i.e. 3 games or more on the roster, but not including IR) (i.e. in the league. If the Browns make an offer to an ERFA, no other team would be able to sign the player.
