This comes shortly after the news that the Browns are “aggressively” trying to trade veteran CB Joe Haden (NFLTR), so it’s clear that Cleveland is open for business right now regarding a number of players.
Erving hasn’t lived up to his draft status and has bounced around between a number of positions on the Browns’ offensive line the past few years.
Erving, 25, is a former first-round pick of the Browns last year. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $9.429 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $1,292,188 and $1,720,782 over the next two years of the agreement.
Erving’s contract includes a fifth-year option for the Browns to decide on next year.
According to OverTheCap.com, trading Erving would free up $12,812 of available cap space while creating $2,558,752 in dead money.
In 2016, Ervin appeared in 13 games for the Browns and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 38 center out of 39 qualifying players.
We’ll have more regarding a potential trade involving Erving as the news is available.
