The Cleveland Browns are not afraid to spend money hoping to build a strong squad.
They have signed quarterback Deshaun Watson to a five-year, $ 230 million fully guaranteed deal.
Although his playing status is still in the air, his গ 46 million annual average makes him one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the league.
Meanwhile, they have also given cornerback Denzel Ward a five-year, 100.5 million extension, which gave him the highest-paid cornerback when he signed.
The Browns have re-signed defensive end Jadevan Clooney with a one-year deal worth about 11 million.
Finally, they exploit the rest of Amari Cooper’s five-year, $ 100 million contract with the Dallas Cowboys.
Although his base salary will be a little over $ 1 million in 2022, Cooper’s salary will increase to $ 20 million per year in 2023 and 2024.
Despite the splurge they have made, the team has yet to add talent.
Brown wants to reunite Watson with his former receiver.
Would be interesting to see if # Brown Free agent WR Will stop Will Fuller, who has already chemised with Deshaun Watson – his former teammate between 2017-2020. Just a thought.

Josina Anderson of CBS Sports tweeted, “It will be interesting to see if #Browns Free agent WR Will stop Will Fuller, who has already chemised with Deshaun Watson – his former teammate between 2017-2020. Just a thought. “
Fuller is a six-year veteran who played with the Miami Dolphins last season.
Prior to that, he was Watson’s teammate with the Houston Texans from 2017 to 2020.
His best year was 2020 where he had 879 yards and eight touchdowns.
He could have stayed more than 1,000 yards without a six-match suspension for violating league policy on performance-enhancing drugs.
A scary receiving corps for Cleveland
If Fuller joins the Browns and regains his 2020 form, he could do some damage to the opposition.
There is no need to build a relationship with Watson because they have long been teammates.
Fuller, Cooper and Donovan give the Browns a solid starter on a wide receiver with Peoples-Jones.
But Cleveland hopes he can shake off his frustrating position with the Dolphins where he had just 26 yards in two games.
