The Browns need to pick up a corner back and a line backer in free agency to help them make an impact while switching their defense over to a 3-4. The Browns have plenty of dry powder in their bank account. Now it is time to make some moves that will help the team get the players they need to win in the NFL.
The very first move should be to get a shut down corner to play opposite if Joe Haden. We know the Browns secondary is a problem and teams have exploited the problems very well last season. Now the Browns have a list full of Corner-Backs, knowing which one to choose it the problem.
Free Agency is loaded with some good corners and one that sticks out to me is Sean Smith, he is big, he is durable and he can cover. The guy only missed one game in the 4 seasons he has played in the NFL. He is a big guy that can cover well and he can make you pay for catching the ball.
At 6'3" and 218 pound he would give the Browns something they lack at the corner position. Height, the guy could be a great addition to the team, but the Browns would have to act fast. Other teams that are reportedly looking at Smith include the Chiefs and the Raiders.
If the Browns could pick up Smith on the free agent market, they would certainly be making a move that would help solidify their defensive secondary coming into the 2013 season. Now the question is, will they make a move?
