CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Browns begin Thursday's free agency with more than $100 million in salary cap space, according to ESPN's Pat McManamon.
The Browns reportedly have between $104 to $106 million to spend, making them the only NFL team with more than $100 million. San Francisco follows with $98.6 million.
Last year, the Browns opted for compensatory draft picks instead of spending on free agents, but several reports suggest they're more willing to spend this year.
That spending started Thursday morning when ESPN reported the Browns are expected to sign wide receiver Kenny Britt to a four-year, $32.5 million deal. That could mean wide receiver Terrelle Pyror could walk in free agency if he and the Browns can't reach an agreement.
The O-Line is suddenly looking pretty solid, amid an Adam Schefter report that Kevin Zeitler will sign. Zeitler spent five seasons with Cincinnati and will sign a five-year, $60 million deal with Cleveland, according to Schefter.
The Browns also signed Joel Bitonio to a six-year, $51.2 million extension, NFL.com reports. That includes $23.7 million guaranteed.
The team also addressed its needs at starting center on reports that it'll sign J.C. Tretter, a signing that could shift Cam Erving to a different position. Tretter has spent the past two seasons as the Green Bay Packers' center.
That rounds up the O-Line with Bitonio, Tretter, Zeitler, Joe Thomas, Erving/and or Corey Coleman and John Greco.
