Analysis: After a season that saw Takkarist McKinley bounce around the league, he now lands on a team desperate for pass-rush help. Cleveland ranked 24th in pressure rate (21.9%) last season, with Myles Garrett as their only threat. The Browns are hoping McKinley can bounce back and show the form that led to 13 total sacks in his first two seasons.
