Did a Cleveland Browns’ free agent board get exposed before a press conference on Wednesday to discuss some of the team’s moves? It sure looks like it, at least somewhat.
A Browns fan spotted the board as first-year GM Ray Farmer came out of a room before Wednesday’s press conference and posted a screenshot of it on Reddit.
The board lists a handful of teams in each column and a player from each team. It sure looks like a board indicating some of the players the team is targeting, but the team is trying to cover its tracks.
A few Browns reporters say the board is in the web crew’s video room. The names are supposedly of players they would need to compile video highlights for in case they are signed.
Board w/ free agents' names at #Browns' facility is in web crew's video room. It's list of highlights to compile just in case one is signed.

Hmm, that sure sounds to me just like what we thought — the board showed a list of players the Browns were interested in. Let them deny all they want.
