Cleveland Browns GM Andrew Berry has been busy this offseason making moves to bring in new players while also retaining a number of key players from last year’s team as well. Keeping some continuity between seasons, even if last year didn’t have the record anyone wanted, can help things start off well.
For the defense, Berry has done a little bit of both with a whole set of new defensive linemen and retaining and adding to both the linebackers and secondary group.
One free agent from 2022 was a big uncertainty. LB Anthony Walker Jr. was hurt most of last year after a seemingly dirty hit from a Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman. Walker recently took a visit to the Washington Commanders and could have rejoined QB Jacoby Brissett, his teammate in Cleveland and Indianapolis.
