Browns, Bengals with money to spend

The NFL offseason is upon us and it's time to fantasize about free agent signings.
Only so much is possible though depending on your team's cap space.
The Browns are one of the teams in the best position, according to a numbers breakdown by overthecap.com.
They estimate the Browns have more than $45 million in cap space with which to work.
The Bengals are also in the top 10 with the most space at an estimated value of more than $23 million.
So who are some of the free agents available to target?
Rotoworld lists the 2014 class by position and "loosely" in order of value. Some of the top names, of course, will be franchised and never hit the market.
Michael Vick's best days may be behind him at 33 years old but he's one of the more palatable options at the quarterback position. That says more about the rest of the potential prospects than Vick.
Running back, where the Browns could look to make a signing, features a much more desirable group, with guys like Ben Tate, Knowshon Moreno, Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew set to be free agents.
Wide receiver is also an intriguing group, topped by Eric Decker, who the Broncos will reportedly allow to test the market.
Two of the Browns' six Pro Bowlers, Alex Mack and T.J. Ward, will be free agents so you'd have to imagine it will be a priority to use their space to keep those two key players on each side of the ball.
Defensive end and unrestricted free agent Michael Johnson should cost the Bengals the most to try to bring back to Cincinnati. Johnson's numbers were down in 2013 but he recorded double-digit sacks in 2012.
And just for kicks, also on that list -- Phil Dawson. Think Cleveland wouldn't mind having its beloved former kicker back?
