Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that the Cleveland Browns are very much interested in signing Carlson during the offseason. The Browns are attempting to drastically rebuild their offense for the 2012 season. They're likely candidates to make a splash on a bevy of offensive prospect in the 2012 NFL Draft, and with the No. 4 overall pick they are perfectly positioned for either a huge name or a boatload of picks and players in exchange for their spot in the draft order.
