So far, the Cleveland Browns have signed free agents on the offensive side of the ball.
They made a big splash to open free agency by signing tight end Austin Hooper, Jack Conklin, and Case Keenum.
Now, it’s seems they are turning their focus to the defense.
According to Jake Trotter of ESPN the Browns have shown some interest in 49ers DE Ronald Blair, a fifth-round pick in 2016 from Appalachian State.

The obvious connection between Blair and the Browns, is his old 49ers defensive coach Joe Woods.
Blair has spent his entire 4-year career with the 49ers.
After Blair tore his ACL in mid-November, he missed the 49ers run to the Super Bowl.
However, Blair posted a video of himself running a straight line on his social media account on Saturday.
Even though he is not 100% ready to play, it shows an important step for a return to the football field.
