Is Beckham Just the Beginning for the Browns? Rumors Say Safety Earl Thomas is Cleveland Bound

The Browns have already landed a major piece to their offensive puzzle this offseason with grabbing wide out Odell Beckham Jr., and now it sounds like the team might be after a playmaker on defense.

There’s a couple tweets out there from sources that say the team is chatting and close to possibly landing Seahawks free agent safety Earl Thomas, a big name playmaker that could help out the teams’ defensive backfield.

Thomas won’t come cheap, as NFL Network reported on Monday that Thomas wants to be the highest-paid safety in the NFL, asking for a salary of at least $14 million per year.

The safety was the 14th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the Seattle Seahawks, and was a part of the teams’ famed defense that took home Super Bowl XLVIII.

Dallas has long been rumored to be the landing spot for Thomas, and reports say that the 49’ers are in the mix.

In 129 career games with the Seahawks, Thomas has 28 interceptions with two touchdowns and has made the Pro Bowl six times.

    We had an All-Star team in Clev in 1995, looks like JDs building another in 2019!

    OBJ was a diva in NY, but w loads of talent & bst friend Landry around him, a QB that can heave the rock a mile, plus WINNING, he´ll be happier.

    Last summer I said Browns would have more talent than ½ NFL on opening day. But for a few blown calls, they WOULD´VE been over .500- I also said the rebuild would look like early ’90s Dallas. The Boys went fr 1-15 to 7-9, then 11-5 & SBs. 1st got Aikman, then RB Smith & WR Irvin, & loaded up w 2yrs multple drft pix & FAs.
    The Browns´ path looks EERILY SIMILAR to the 90s DBoys.
