Jason La Canfora, an NFL insider for CBS Sports, published an article Saturday night discussing where certain free agents could end up landing in a month or so. He lists two high profile names -- in addition to the oft-mentioned wishes for a new quarterback -- who the Cleveland Browns could be targeting: The Browns have about $30 million in space and will be big spenders under new owner Jimmy Haslam and team president Joe Banner. Many in the Steelers organization believe Wallace will end up with their division rivals in Cleveland (Haslam was a former minority owner of the Steelers), and the Browns could make a play for a pass rusher like Kruger, too. Should Vick become available, he too could be in play -- this new regime badly wants to upgrade from former first-round pick Brandon Weeden -- otherwise Alex Smith might make sense, among others. The cap space amounts in La Canfora's piece are denoted as projected amounts, and it would seem to me that they do not factor in the carry-over amount that teams have from last season. Last month, we had the Browns at about $48.9 million.
