The Cleveland Browns are interested in signing WR Danario Alexander, per the Orange and Brown Report. With the Chargers tendering the low restricted free agent offer on Alexander, there would be nothing stopping the Browns from making an offer. They would not have to give up a draft pick to sign him, so why not make an offer?
Norv Turner is the new offensive coordinator in Cleveland and he knows what Alexander can bring to the offense. I am sure he would love to bring him to Cleveland. I could see Cleveland easily sending an offer out to Alexander. It would then be up to the Chargers to match the offer or let him walk away for nothing. Just another hole for us to fill!
That is the risk we made by not offering a higher tender on Alexander. If we want to keep Alexander around, we will have to pay someone else’s price tag.
