Browns' top salary-cap numbers
By Jamison Hensley
The Browns are right behind the Bengals in salary-cap room with an estimated $50 million. Like the Bengals, the Browns have relatively low cap numbers, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
Only five players on the entire team are over $5 million. In fact, there are only 10 Cleveland players with cap figures over $2 million.
As free agency approaches, the Browns don't have to worry about getting under the cap. The big question is how they're going to use all of that cap room.
Here are the top 10 salary-cap numbers for the Browns:
1. Joe Thomas, OT, $11.4 million
2. Joe Haden, CB, $9.24 million
3. Ahtyba Rubin, DT, $7.57 million
4. D'Qwell Jackson, LB, $6.4 million
5. Alex Mack, C, $5.03 million
6. Chris Gocong, LB, $4.86 million
7. Trent Richardson, RB, $4.65 million
8. Colt McCoy, QB, $2.51 million
9. Usama Young, S, $2.4 million
10. Phil Taylor, DT, $2.2 million
