Browns' Matt McCants: Signing with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McCants will sign with the Browns on Monday, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

McCants spent a couple weeks with the Browns last season before being cut and finishing the campaign off by appearing in two games for the Bears. The fifth-year pro will now return to Cleveland in hopes of securing a depth lineman role this season.

Browns' Brock Osweiler: Could stay with Browns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Browns head coach Hue Jackson said he is preparing for the upcoming season as if Osweiler will be on the roster, reports.

A previous report suggested the Browns don't plan to keep Osweiler, who was acquired along with a second-round draft pick in a trade designed to free up cap space for the Texans. The 26-year-old didn't look like starting material in his one-year stint in Houston, but he would at least provide some veteran competition for second-year players Cody Kessler and Kevin Hogan, the other two quarterbacks currently on Cleveland's roster. The Browns might still acquire another veteran or use a draft pick on a quarterback, but if not, it would make sense to at least give Osweiler a brief look during offseason workouts before making a final decision.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Expected to be traded or released if reinstated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Browns likely will trade or release Gordon (suspension) if he is reinstated by the NFL, The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Gordon applied for reinstatement in early March and expects to get an answer around the time of the NFL Draft. He's been suspended for 43 of the last 48 regular-season games, with his only appearances since 2013 occurring late in the 2014 season. He'll still only be 26 years old for the upcoming season, and he did look good in his two appearances last preseason, but then entered an inpatient rehab facility instead of rejoining the Browns after Week 4. While his willingness to take responsibility for his actions should help his case, Gordon's lengthy track record of substance-abuse issues means that any reinstatement likely would have a slew of conditions attached. Given his age and modest contract, Gordon might still fetch a middle-round pick in a trade. It's also possible, though not likely, that the Browns might reconsider their stance and give Gordon another shot.

Browns' Josh Gordon: Expects to hear about reinstatement by early May
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gordon (suspension) expects to hear about the status of his reinstatement application by late April or early May, ESPN's Dan Graziano reports.

Gordon applied for reinstatement in early March, eyeing a return to regular-season action for the first time since December 2014. He was conditionally reinstated last summer from an indefinite ban, needing to serve another four-game suspension before playing in a game. Gordon ultimately entered an inpatient rehab facility instead of returning after four weeks, thereby failing to meet the terms for reinstatement. The league may outline a similar condition this time around, but regardless, the Browns are expected to part ways with Gordon. Set to turn 26 in April, the talented wideout shouldn't have a hard time finding another team willing to give him a shot.

Browns' Brett Maher: Moves from Canada to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Maher signed with the Browns on Monday.

Maher has spent the last three years kicking in the CFL, most recently with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, for whom he converted 41 of 50 field goal attempts en route to 161 total points this past season. After that success, he'll compete with Cody Parkey for Cleveland's kicking gig this season.
