The fun of NFL free agency tends to keep fans focused directly on the Cleveland Browns, as it should be. GM Andrew Berry has had the Browns as the most active team so far in free agency signing:
What about the rest of the AFC North? The road to the NFL playoffs goes directly through the division with three teams that have been more consistent winners than Cleveland. It doesn’t matter if the Browns “win the offseason” and get good grades but that is the only part of the game that is currently going on.
Last year, the Cincinnati Bengals ruled the division with a 12-4 record a year after losing in the Super Bowl. The Baltimore Ravens, despite not having Lamar Jackson for the end of the season, made the playoffs at 10-7 while the Pittsburgh Steelers missed the postseason but Mike Tomlin continued his streak of non-losing seasons at 9-8.
Now we take a look at how those three teams have done this offseason. Who have they added, lost:
All in all, the Browns added the most starters while the Ravens have made the fewest moves and are the most up in the air. For the Bengals, trading out their starting safeties for a good, not great, left tackle is an interesting move while the Steelers stabilized their roster with a couple of upgrades.
NFL free agency and the NFL offseason are far from over but at the end of the first week, it is interesting to look at where all the teams are. Based on last year’s records, Cleveland had the farthest to go and are trying to get there. Baltimore’s future is up in the air while Cincinnati and Pittsburgh just keep plugging along, in different ways.
