As first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the Cleveland Browns hosted free agent offensive guard Ronald Leary for a visit this week. Scott Petrak of the Chronicle-Telegram confirms that the visit took place on Wednesday.
The #Browns are looking to add offensive line help, bringing in FA G Ronald Leary on a visit with the hope of signing him, source said. The former #Cowboys and #Broncos started could add veteran experience to that unit.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) August 12, 2020
Leary went undrafted in 2012 and signed on with the Dallas Cowboys. In 2013, he became a starter for the team and played under Bill Callahan as his offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Callahan is now the Browns’ offensive line coach.
Leary has been a starter for the Broncos for the past 3 seasons, playing a mix of left and right guard. Not only would he offer much-needed veteran depth at the guard position for Cleveland, but he would also figure to have a decent chance of competing with Wyatt Teller for a starting role. It is worth noting that Leary has been injury prone throughout his career. We should have a good idea on Thursday as to whether or not the Browns will sign him.
