The Browns visited with Jonathan Goff of the Super Bowl champion New York Giants on Tuesday. Goff didn’t play the entire season after tearing his ACL on the Monday before the first week of the season.
Goff was looking like an improved player before he went down for the season according to Mike Garafalo of the Star-Ledger.
He was looking fluid in training camp after working on his agility in the offseason. Indications are the Giants would like him back at a reasonable price and with a contract that includes limited guarantees, sort of like the one they gave cornerback Terrell Thomas.
Goff is still young at 26 and is the kind of free agent the Browns would presumably take a flyer on as a value play. Prior to the injury, Goff was entering his second year as full-time starter as the middle linebacker for the Giants.
Seems like a promising prospect considering all the details and the fact that the Giants presumably would take him back.
