Cleveland Browns want Julian Edelman in free agency

Cleveland Browns are desperate to pick up a wide-receiver to complement their star young receiver Josh Gordon. 

The 22-year-old caught 87 passes last season for 1646 yards in only 14 starts and he is seen as the future of the franchise at the position. 

He will be a marked man in 2014, so the Browns have thought of the perfect recipe to counter this problem, get another quality receiver.

Julian Edelman is the man that the Browns want to create what could be a potent tandem for the AFC North team. 

The 27-year-old has hardly had the most prolific career, with over half of his five year production with the New England Patriots coming in his final season.

He also caught six of his 10 career receiving touchdowns in 2013, proving that last season was certainly a breakout year for Edelman.

The Browns interest is based on the player that Edelman was last season under Tom Brady, rather than the unproductive version of the four seasons previously.

It remains to be seen as to whether or not Cleveland can pull of the coup.

Beat writer Michael Giardi explained, "Browns making strong push to get Julian Edelman in the fold. The effort comes now that Cleveland expects Cincy to match offer for Hawkins."
