Harrison's agent says his client would 'love to play for the Browns'

New, comments

Browns looking to shell out some cash this free agency period, and they've reportedly set their sights on a few players within the AFC North.

A recent report from the Cleveland Plain-Dealer suggests former Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison would "love to play for the Browns," according to his agent, Bill Parise. While it would be on a much lower media scale, it would be tantamount to Brett Favre ending up in Minnesota, or Johnny Damon ending up with the Yankees.

Of course, Parise's client is also a free agent, who was released because he did not want to play for a reduced salary. That strongly suggests his client would "love" to play anywhere.

Yes, even Cleveland.

The Browns appear to be ready and willing to spend a chunk of the truckload of cap space they have, and are reportedly showing interest in Ravens free agent LBs Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe.

Cleveland's in a great position to raise the market value of Ellerbe considerably, noting the Ravens have made re-signing Ellerbe their top priority, despite possibly letting him hit actual free agency - beginning at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, March 12.

Kruger is not expected to re-sign with the Ravens, but considering his impressive playoff run, he'll likely be the target of multiple teams.
