We are within hours of other NFL teams being able to play “Lets Make A Deal” with the Cleveland Browns free agents. Players can talk to other teams commencing at noon today, the teams can’t present them a formal offer, until Tuesday of next week.

The Browns are one of the richest teams in the NFL when it comes to cap space. There are only two other NFL teams in the league with more cap space than the Cleveland Browns. Jimmy Haslam isn’t doing his NFL franchise any favors, by holding onto the extra money his Browns aren’t spending.

Since taking over control of the team in 2012, Haslam only has 9 wins to show for it. The Browns come into free agency with,  $49,918,501.00 dollars available, before running out of cap space.

The only teams ahead of them with more cap room are the Oakland Raiders and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If we look at the records of these 3 teams, we can all see they pretty much sucked during the 2013 season. Between these three teams they combined for 12 wins last season. What did all that cap space do for these teams? Absolutely nothing.

Haslam needs to spend money to put a viable team on the field this year. So far this guy has talked about providing the good people of Cleveland a winner, but hasn’t even come close to doing it.

Talk is cheap Jimmy, but then again so is holding on the all that cap space too.

    Right on LG. We’ll just have to see what goes on in the days starting Tuesday.

    I wonder if there will be a rumors as to who the Browns contact until Tuesday?

      Could Be Ronald. The thing is, when Tuesday comes teams can sign our guys (Ward & Mack). The Browns will have 5 days to match an offer to Mack, but who knows if they will.

      You are right, they should spend some money. Maybe he doesn’t have the liquid cash people thought he had, he paid a boat load to lawyers……
