NFL Rumors: Browns Showing ''Significant Interest'' In Free Agent Tight End

As the new league year begins, the Cleveland Browns have been active in bolstering their roster.

Following the NFL's legal tampering period for free agency, the team has strengthened their defensive line and re-signed key players.

Now, the Browns have set their sights on acquiring a new red zone threat in the form of tight end Donald Parham to improve their depth behind David Njoku.

ESPN Cleveland reporter Brad Stainbrook reveals that the Browns are showing significant interest in former Los Angeles Chargers TE Donald Parham.

In his three seasons with the Chargers, Parham has accumulated 479 receiving yards and seven touchdowns. However, his 2022 season was limited due to hamstring issues and a concussion.

The 6-foot-8 Parham would complement Njoku well in the Browns' vertical offense, providing QB Deshaun Watson with another imposing target.

Browns fans on Twitter have expressed positive reactions to the potential addition, citing Parham's size and red zone capabilities. 

Cleveland currently has Harrison Bryant as TE2, but if they were to sign Parham, they could either save money by parting ways with Bryant or maintain a formidable three tight end set.

The Browns found success in 2022 with a three tight end set that bolstered their running game behind star RB Nick Chubb.

The potential combination of Njoku, Bryant, and Parham could create a formidable offensive unit for the upcoming season. 

The New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos are also rumored to be interested in Parham.
