Free Agency

2020 Browns free agency: Which offensive linemen could be potential fits in Cleveland?

The new league year is just around the corner, and the Browns' roster could have a bit of a different look to it by this time next month.

Throughout the week, we're going to break down Cleveland's roster situation at each of its position groups and look across the league at the top names likely to hit free agency starting March 18.

We're continuing Tuesday with the offensive line, where the Browns, like most teams in the NFL, could use some more depth at multiple spots.

Who's back?

C JC Tretter - A foundational piece of Cleveland's offensive line, Tretter has started 48 consecutive games.

C Willie Wright - Spent 2019 on the practice squad.

G Joel Bitonio - The longest-tenured Brown and two-time Pro Bowler has been one of the best left guards in the league.

G Drew Forbes - The sixth-round rookie spent the first part of the season on injured reserve and was used sparingly upon return.

G Colby Gossett - Spent most of the season on practice squad before moving up to the active roster for the final game.

G Malcolm Pridgeon - Spent the season on the practice squad.

G Wyatt Teller - Acquired before the season in a trade with the Bills, Teller appeared in 15 games with nine starts at right guard.

T Chris Hubbard - Though he's weathered some ups and downs, Hubbard has been the regular starter at right tackle for the past two seasons.

T Kendall Lamm - Missed most of the season with a knee injury. He appeared in four games with two starts.

Unrestricted free agents

T Greg Robinson - The former No. 2 overall pick had an up-and-down 2019 that saw him briefly benched in favor of Justin McCray. He started 22 games at left tackle over the past two seasons.

Restricted free agents

G Justin McCray - Acquired in a preseason trade, McCray did a little bit of everything for the Browns at a variety of positions. He wound up starting four games and appeared in 15 as both a guard and tackle.
