It has been a wild beginning to the offseason for the Cleveland Browns.
They recently acquired four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper from the Dallas Cowboys.
However, the Browns weren’t done there as they also traded for quarterback Deshaun Watson.
We have agreed to trade QB Deshaun Watson and a 2024 fifth-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for a 2022 first-round pick, 2023 first-round pick, 2024 first-round pick, 2023 third-round pick and 2024 fourth-round pick.
Statement from GM Nick Caserio:

Now, the Browns need to revamp their receiving group with Watson under center.
They already have Cooper and also signed wideout Jakeem Grant.
However, the Browns are unlikely done there and could bring in one of Watson’s former teammates.
Fuller To Cleveland?
The Browns have a void to fill with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry off the roster.
Bringing in Cooper does help, but there is still more work to be done.
It’s unlikely that the Browns sign or trade for another Pro Bowl talent to pair alongside Cooper.
Instead, they might go a cheaper approach and bring in a player such as Will Fuller.
A name to watch for the #Browns to sign is WR Will Fuller. Deshaun’s best target in Houston after DeAndre Hopkins was traded. Possibly will have to wait until Baker is traded to have more money to spend, but, I definitely see that a possibility. #WillFuller #NFL pic.twitter.com/QLRpOHxvSu

The former first-round pick spent his first five seasons as a member of the Texans.
In 2021, Fuller signed a one-year deal worth over $10 million with the Miami Dolphins.
Sadly, that deal didn’t work out too well as Fuller only played in two games due to injury.
Now, the veteran wideout is likely to sign a short-term “prove it” deal this offseason.
While in Houston, Watson and Fuller had solid chemistry together.
Possibly, the Browns try to light that spark again by reuniting them in Cleveland.
Worth The Risk?
The biggest knock against Fuller during his career has been his health.
The six-year veteran has yet to play a full season during his professional career.
In fact, Fuller has played 11 games or less during each of the last five seasons.
The 27-year-old has plenty of talent and had been a reliable red zone threat for Houston.

Cleveland could certainly use a vertical threat such as Fuller on their offense.
The hope was that Anthony Schwartz would be that player, but he struggled during his rookie campaign.
Possibly, the addition of Fuller would also make Watson feel more comfortable in Cleveland.
As already mentioned, the two of them had plenty of success together during their time in Houston.
The Browns should also be able to sign Fuller to a fairly reasonable deal.
He is coming off an injury riddled season and needs to reset his value.
A move to Cleveland could be a benefit to the Browns roster and Fuller’s career.
