Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports that a source has informed him that he expects the Browns to have one of Paul Kruger or Cliff Avril under contract “by Tuesday night.”

King adds that his “money’s on Avril.”

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported Sunday night that the Browns and Colts are expected to engage in a “bidding war” for Kruger.

If that ends up being the case, Cleveland could always shift gears towards Avril, who has been drawing interest from teams that in employ 3-4 defenses.

Either way, the Browns figure to be among the most active teams in the free agent market.
