The Browns have expressed in Titans free agent Jared Cook, the top tight end on the market, league sources have said. The Browns are one of at least a half dozen teams eyeing the premier tight end, who caught 44 passes for 523 yards and four TDs last season. The Dolphins and Bears are also reportedly in the mix. Question is, will the Browns be willing to pay the huge salary Cook will command? With the Browns pursuing big-name pass-rushers such as Ravens linebacker Paul Kruger and Lions defensive end Cliff Avril, they might not want to spend upwards of $6 million on a tight end. Reports have Cook (6-5, 246) in line to make anywhere from $6 million to $10 million a year. It's probably actually more likely the Browns will end up with Raiders tight end Brandon Myers, who caught 79 passes for 806 yard and four TDs last season. Teams can begin signing players at 4 p.m. tomorrow. That's also when the trading period opens.
