Rumor: Browns Expected to Compete for A.J Bouye

The Browns have an obvious need in the secondary so going after AJ Bouye makes a lot of sense.

Rumor has it the Cleveland Browns are expected to be "extremely competitive" for Texans CB A.J. Bouye:

Now Wilson quickly hedged his bets, or more accurately tightened up his list:

As I've said on my Locked On Browns podcast, Twitter and here on the OBR, the Browns are going to be rumored to pretty much every team. With their large cap space, see the Niners on the original list, and needs at a variety of positions, again see the Niners on the original list, the Browns are great leverage points for agents.

If the Browns are "extremely competitive" the other teams must come correct.

To be fair, signing Bouye to a big deal is a much better option than trading for Trumaine Johnson and having to sign him to a big deal.

Do you think the Browns want Bouye or just being used as leverage?
