NFL Rumors: Will the Cleveland Browns Part Ways With Benjamin Watson?
Unfortunately, 2012 turned out to be another disappointing season for the Cleveland Browns as the team finished with a 5-11 record–three of which came during the final six weeks of the regular season. With the offseason officially under way, there are plenty of decisions the Browns need to focus on–especially when it comes to tight end Benjamin Watson.
One of the top NFL rumors this offseason involves Cleveland most likely parting ways with Watson after three seasons as the tight end enters the 2013 season at 32-years-old. For a team with plenty of issues at quarterback and on offense, Watson’s numbers have been decent to say the least since joining the team in 2010 as he’s coming off a 2012 season in which he caught 49 passes for 501 yards to go along with three touchdowns.
The argument can be made Watson’s numbers would be better if the team didn’t have so many quarterback issues over the last three years, but it may be best for both sides to just part ways at this point in his career. It would be one thing if Cleveland was able to convince him to stick around for the right price, but if he’s going to be asking for a hefty deal–it may just be best for both parties to go their separate ways.
Either way, it should be interesting to see how the next couple of months play out considering all of the changes the Browns will need to make if they’re going to have any shot at turning things around in 2013.
