NFL Free Agency: Cleveland Browns Have Several Free Agents

Most people focus on what players their teams will bring in when NFL Free Agency starts.  At the same time, teams need to try and keep their own players that are now free, thanks to the new CBA agreed to between players and owners earlier today.  As expected, players with at least 4 years of accrued service are now free agents.  How does this affect the Cleveland Browns?
