Browns Shopping Around 2015 First-Round Pick OL Cam Erving

News broke earlier Tuesday that the Browns are looking to move veteran cornerback Joe Haden. Now less than a few hours after that report, another former first-round pick is on the block according to reports.’s Mary Kay Cabot states the team is shopping around 2015 first-round offensive tackle Cam Erving, a player who has struggled greatly since being drafted.

Erving, the No.19 overall pick in 2015 out of Florida State, was competing for the right tackle job before he suffered a calf injury last week that has him week-to-week.

Now, it’s second-year lineman Shon Coleman’s job.

Erving started 13 games last season, including 12 at center, where he struggled with the demands of the position. This preseason, he said he felt much more comfortable at right tackle, where he didn’t have to be responsible for sliding the protections and all the other responsibilities at center.

Erving is under contract for two more years, with a club option for a fifth year. He’s set to make almost $1.3 million this year, and $1.72 million next year.

Getting any sort of return on Erving is going to be tough based on how badly he’s looked to this point in his pro career, but some team may want to take a shot on him and try and get his career back on track.
