Biggest question to be answered: Given that McKinley barely played last year, defensive line is still a question mark. The Browns also didn't upgrade their speed or athleticism at linebacker in any way, while allowing 2020 starting corner Terrance Mitchell to walk in free agency. The Browns will have to address those needs in the draft, beginning with the No. 26 overall pick, which is sure to be a defensive selection. With the Johnson signing, the Browns' defense is better, but probably not enough to consider Cleveland a viable Super Bowl contender. -- Jake TrotterAtlanta Falcons for Face Masks

And if they cannot or if they decide not to attempt to do so and stick at 12, they will still be in a position to add a premium talent to the roster and put Garoppolo in the best position possible to lead a second Super Bowl run in three seasons.Pittsburgh Steelers for Face Masks
Establishing the legal and civil innocence of Watson appears to be the top priority with pursuing teams, but there is also pressing concern over what the league office’s approach will be when it comes to the quarterback resolving the lawsuits. The league office and commissioner Roger Goodell continue to have an almost universally undefined standard for placing players on the exempt list, which would continue to pay Watson but not allow him to have contact with his team. The NFL also continues to have wide latitude for its suspensions as well, including the numbers of games and the behavior it believes violates the league’s personal conduct policy.Houston Texans for Face Masks
Clowney played only half the 2020 season before going on injured reserve with a torn meniscus. He recorded four passes defensed, four tackles for loss, and six quarterback hits but no sacks for Tennessee.
Reviews of Smith's performance on the new CBA were mixed. Joe Banner, a former executive with the Eagles and Browns who helped negotiate the 2011 deal, felt Smith had done a good job, raising the split of revenue players received from 47% to 48.5% with the 17th game approved. But Andrew Brandt, a former Packers executive and agent, said Smith should have extracted more for the 17th game, considering the enormous boon to the league and its broadcast partners. Brad Sohn, a plaintiffs attorney on the head-injury lawsuit against the league, said the new deal "puts accountability for numerous health and safety issues on life support."
