‘BROWN BOMBERS NEWS: Cleveland Brown To Sign Free Agent Wild Receiver From Las Vegas Raiders, Who Has A Rich History With Deshaun Watson. This Could Lead In Elijah Moore Finding A New Home.

The Cleveland Browns’ previous season was supposed to be saved by Elijah Moore.

The wide receiver Elijah Moore of the New York Jets wanted a change of scenery after two difficult seasons in New York, and the Cleveland Browns badly needed to enhance the receiver room. Last season, general manager Andrew Berry of the Browns pulled off an incredible deal for Moore.

Moore was projected to be the team’s second-best receiver going into the season, behind Amari Cooper and possibly Donovan Peoples-Jones. Moore, however, had a lackluster season with just 17 games played, 640 receiving yards, and two touchdowns.

Now that Cleveland has acquired Denver Broncos wide receiver Jerry Jeudy, they will go down the team’s target list with Moore as they begin the 2024 campaign with Cooper.

Many fans believed Moore was upset about the Jeudy trade and contract extension when he skipped the first week of the Browns OTAs, the voluntary offseason exercise program, last week.

As Moore approaches the final year of his contract before becoming a free agent, it’s possible he won’t play a snap for the Browns this year.

There’s a chance Hunter Renfrow will join the Cleveland Browns.

Hunter Renfrow is a free agent wide receiver that the Browns may want to consider acquiring, according to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com. Since both players attended Clemson and were a member of the squad that won the National Championship in 2016–2017, quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver have a long and wonderful history together.

Since joining the NFL in 2019, Renfrow has amassed over 1,000 yards in 2021, along with nine touchdowns and a Pro Bowl selection. But the young athlete has had a really difficult two seasons, which is one of the reasons he remains a free agent.

Renfrow’s prior relationship with Watson was the only reason the Browns decided to sign him. Given that they both operate out of the slot, signing him might compel Moore to leave Cleveland; yet, Moore has shown a desire to go.

If Cleveland adds Renfrow to the offense, which already has Cooper, Jeudy, and tight end David Njoku taking targets away, Moore may not have a chance to play well this year if he wants a new contract next season.
