AFC Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers


  • In addition to Buccaneers LB Lavonte David, the Browns are monitoring Bills LB Matt Milano as a potential free-agent target, per’s Mary Kay Cabot.
  • Cabot writes depending on how free agency goes, the Browns would like to bring back LBs B.J. Goodson and Malcolm Smith as depth in 2021. 
  • The Browns are active in discussing trades with other teams, so Cabot wouldn’t be surprised if GM Andrew Berry has checked with the Saints to see if they want to trade CB Marshon Lattimore in the final year of his deal. But she notes the Browns have CB Denzel Ward eligible for an extension this offseason and will need to budget accordingly.

An anonymous NFL head coach tells Matt Lombardo of FanSided that he believes that Steelers’ LB Bud Dupree could be the steal of free agency this offseason, but it will obviously depend on how he recovers from the torn ACL he suffered.

“Bud Dupree is someone that is a real question mark for me,” the anonymous coach said. “If he was healthy, he’s easily the top pass-rusher hitting the open market, and teams would pay a king’s ransom to sign him. But, with him coming off a torn ACL, what exactly are you committing to? Does he want to go back to Pittsburgh? Who knows, but he’s someone that I think will wind up having to wait a while to sign.”

  • After needing surgery to repair the torn ACL that he suffered in the fifth game of last season, Steelers ILB Devin Bush gave fans a positive update on his recovery: “I’m feeling stronger week by week. I’m just trying to get ready physically for next year, especially for camp.” (Jon Rutter)
