Mohamed Sanu has already been linked to the Cleveland Browns, but the Cincinnati Bengals believe he won’t be the last name you’ll hear linked between the two teams. According to Bengals.com’s Geoff Hobson, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther believes Hue Jackson and the revamped Browns front office will be first in line for a good portion of Cincinnati’s impending free agents.
Guenther on his free agents: Hue wants them all up in Cleveland.

According to PFT’s Zac Jackson, Guenther and Jackson were promoted simultaneously in 2013. Some of his players in question include starting safeties Reggie Nelson and George Iloka, linebacker Emmanuel Lamur and defensive end Wallace Gilberry. On Hue’s side of the ball, Sanu and fellow wide receiver Marvin Jones remain as the most discussed names. Given recent news surrounding both Tashaun Gipson and Donte Whitner, the combination of Nelson and Iloka—both highly rated on PFF’s Free Agency Tracker—could make a ton of sense. Gilberry’s work on the edge could fit into the Browns’ scheme, but there are a host of more talented players ahead of him.
While cornerback Leon Hall is also about to hit the market, one name that will likely not be linked to the Browns following recent comments from Jackson: Adam “Pacman” Jones.
