Home Browns NFL Notes: Free Agency, Browns, Chargers, Giants
- Ian Rapoport‘s understanding is that the Browns are still expected to make a run at acquiring Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo. However, he does not believe New England wants to trade him.
- Mike Klis of 9News would not be surprised to see the NFL look into taking a draft pick away from the Chargers for possibly tampering with OT Russell Okung prior to the start of free agency.
- According to Klis, league sources believe the Chargers may have tampered with Okung, who was not allowed to begin negotiations until 2 p.m. on Thursday.
- According to Jordan Raanan, the Giants and DE Jason Pierre-Paul are “not close” on a contract extension and a deal was not expected prior to the start of free agency.
