The Texans may already have sign Larry Warford before this article is done. Warford has been released by the Saints and quickly moves into a top-five free agent. The Browns need to make a call right away also. Warford would give the Browns arguably the best right side in all of football on the offensive line. Making the call should be a no brainer for a lot of teams, and The Browns are one of them.
Warford has been a starter in the NFL for seven seasons, his four with the Lions. He has been a pro bowler for the last three seasons with the Saints. Warford is only 29 years old and could easily beat out Wyatt Teller, Drew Forbes, or any other options at right guard. He has started 44 of a possible 48 games over the last three seasons so durability is not a concern. Why the Saints seem to favor a player like Andrus Peat by giving him a massive deal this offseason and cut a pro bowler for seven million dollars is beyond comprehension.
Last season per Pro Football Focus, Warford had an overall grade of 73.1 and was steady as both a pass blocker and run-blocker. Warford gave up two sacks in 970 sacks, along with six penalties. This move would give the Browns a chance to have one of the top five offensive lines in the NFL. Andrew Berry should be on the phone, finding out how much it will take to get Warford in Cleveland.
