Browns targeting free agent WR Julian Edelman

The Cleveland Browns are interested in free agent wide receiver Julian Edelman.

Edelman, 27, is coming off a career best season that saw him catch 105 passes for 1056 yards and six touchdowns for the New England Patriots in 2013.

While Edelman had been expected to leave the Patriots, recent reports had suggested that the team was trying hard to keep him. Either way he will use any report he can to seek additional dollars on the free agent market.

Edelman’s ability to work the slot and his ability in the return game would make him an asset to any team in the league.

The Browns simply need someone to play opposite of Josh Gordon.
