Spending

Browns spend a lot on tight ends, not a lot on receivers: Gotta watch the tape

CLEVELAND, Ohio — There’s always a lot of talk about what the Browns need in free agency and the draft, but there’s also the question of which positions they value the most. And that can sometimes tell us how they might go about targeting players in free agency and the draft.

On this week’s episode of Gotta Watch The Tape, Scott Patsko and Doug Lesmerises dive into positional value and how the Browns might view it.

Maybe we should call it Gotta Track The Numbers.

First, Scott and Doug examine how NFL teams value different job groups, using analytics data and salary information. Next, they support how the Browns spend their money versus what the rest of the league does.

It doesn’t take long for Scott and Doug to realize that the Browns are going against the grain more than a few times when it comes to roster build.

It’s all in this week’s edition of Gotta Watch The Tape.
