The Cleveland Browns and John Dorsey have made a splash this offseason, but it appears they are not done yet. Eric Berry and Tre Boston have emerged as targets for the team.

Berry and Boston would be fantastic complements to a team on a major rise heading into the 2019 season. Eric Berry has an established relationship with Dorsey, the Browns’ general manager, after many seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs. Tre Boston has played for Browns defensive coordinator Steve Wilks on both the Carolina Panthers and the Arizona Cardinals.
Berry and Boston both offer a hard-hitting, playmaking style. Either would be a great addition to a Browns defense that will likely thrive in the league next season. After trading for defensive end Olivier Vernon and signing defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, the Browns are making it known they plan on doing more than just competing in the AFC North Division next season. Cleveland has made moves to suggest it is going for it all. John Dorsey is the man behind these movements.
Eric Berry was shockingly released by the Chiefs just a little over a week ago. Boston has yet to find a team willing to give him a shot. Both safeties are highly talented and bring different skill sets to the table. Unfortunately for Berry, he has had quite a tough time staying healthy the last two seasons, so it’s possible it could deter teams from taking a risk on him. Boston does not have any problems remaining healthy, but has had difficulties finding a team to stay with for the long haul. In the few seasons Boston has been in the league, he has played for three different teams.
John Dorsey has more plans in store for this offseason.
