There was a report that the Browns would have tried to acquire Eugene Monroe if they knew he was available via trade.
According to Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union, the Browns knew Monroe was available and actually made an offer, but it wasn’t as good as the Ravens’.
Per Browns saying they didn't know Monroe was available, they called #Jaguars before trade w/ Ravens was done. Offer wasn't as good.
