The Browns are considering signing free agent CB Benny Sapp.
Sapp was a decent nickel back at one time in Kansas City, but doesn't offer starting potential. He'd be best staying in sub-packages for his next team.

I thought he was allright.

Cleveland Browns' free agent activity slowing

There doesn't appear to be another free-agent signing in the Browns' immediate future.
Both linebacker Clark Haggans and cornerback Bennie Sapp concluded their visits with the team without a contract agreement.
It is believed that the Browns did make an offer to Sapp, but the veteran of four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs has elected to make at least one more visit.
"He had an excellent visit," said Alonzo Shavers, Sapp's agent. "We'll see how things play out. It is an excellent opportunity. We're just trying to weigh some options.
"This is kind of his window (of opportunity in free agency). We've had some things on the plate, but the Browns are on the top."
Sapp would come in as a backup cornerback and special teams player.
Haggans is the most productive pass rusher in a 3-4 defense available in free agency. He had 25 sacks starting the past four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers. But the Browns' interest appears lukewarm.
Jeff Sperbeck, Haggans' agent, indicated to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, that Haggans hasn't ruled out returning to the Steelers.
Sperbeck did not immediately return two messages for an update on Haggans' visit with the Browns.

updatier?? you're cracking me up, man
Bennie is a heck of a special teams player. Not sure if I sure I would like him to leave.
