Browns Look to Sign Nate Solder

"The Browns still don't know of Thomas' plans, and they don't know if they'll hear (Tuesday), sources told cleveland.com". The seven-year veteran is willing to take a little less to keep protecting Tom Brady's blindside, but we'll see if a team makes an outrageous offer that the Patriots aren't willing to match.

This is Solder's first opportunity in unrestricted free agency.

He is widely considered to be the No. 1 tackle available.

Even after that flurry, the Browns still have the second-most cap space in the National Football League at $77.8 million, per Spotrac. And they have plenty of money to play with. He's likely to benefit from an otherwise weak class of free agent tackles.

For the Browns, this deal would be another investment in the offensive line after spending big on Joel Bitino (extension) and Kevin Zeitler/JC Tretter (free agency) past year.

The Browns have been uber-aggressive this offseason, reportedly agreeing to trades for quarterback Tyrod Taylor, wide receiver Jarvis Landry and cornerback Damarious Randall. Netting Solder as a replacement for Thomas and then potentially adding Saquon Barkley in the draft would be quite the overhaul on that side of the ball and make Cleveland's offense pretty intriguing heading into 2018. It was believed he would come back and that's the indication the Browns are giving out.

Therefore, the Browns aren't taking any chances.

There has been some concern regarding Thomas' future after he let it be known that he was considering retirement.
