Daily Dawg Tags: Browns to meet with Joey Bosa


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Friday, April 1.

Cleveland Browns:

Cleveland Browns reportedly will meet with Joey Bosa

"Bosa would be a popular choice among some Browns fans and entered the off-season as the presumed top defensive player in the draft. He has been surpassed in recent weeks by Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey on some draft boards, but either player would certainly help the Browns ailing defense."

Should the Cleveland Browns select Laremy Tunsil at No. 2?

"The departures of Mitchell Schwartz and Alex Mack from the Cleveland Browns left fans with a sour taste in their mouth. The team had $40 million in cap space and letting go of two of their best overall players, both formidable linemen, solidifies the fact that Cleveland needs to address the offensive line in the draft."

Josh McCown: I want to compete to be the Cleveland Browns QB

"While many expect that his days as a Cleveland Brown are numbered, veteran quarterback Josh McCown still wants the opportunity to compete for the team’s starting quarterback job. And even if it is just in a backup role, McCown is still ready to help out where he can with the Browns."

Cleveland Browns LB Barkevious Mingo finally bulks up (Factory of Sadness)

"Barkevious Mingo gained 20 pounds this winter. He went from 240 pounds, to 260. On behalf of the Dawg Pound, let me shout a collective “FINALLY!” When the Joe Banner/Mike Lombardi regime made Mingo the No. 7 overall pick in what’s turned out to be a disappointing 2013 NFL Draft, Browns fans envisioned an quick, elusive, pass rusher."

Josh McCown on Johnny Manziel: ‘I believe in him’ (Sporting News)

"The Browns released Johnny Manziel on March 11 and the quarterback has not yet drawn any interest from other NFL teams. But one former teammate is rooting for Manziel to succeed in the NFL. Browns quarterback Josh McCown, who started eight games in 2015 before injuries ended his season, believes Manziel can get his career back on track."

NFL News:

30 biggest draft busts in NFL history (FanSided)

"This year’s draft will take place in Chicago from April 28-30. Clubs with high picks like the Tennessee Titans and Cleveland Browns will look to add an impact player to lead them to contention. Others, like the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers, will hope to snag an undervalued prospect near the end of the first round. As exciting as it is to have a high draft pick, however, it does cause some level of apprehension."

"It’s been termed a “groin” injury, but the full truth about the injury that ended reigning defensive player of the year J.J. Watt’s 2015 season a quarter-and-a-half early is much more complicated. By season’s end, Watt had five partially or fully torn muscles in his core area, necessitating surgical repair on both sides of his body. According to a source, Watt had partially torn left and right abdominals and a partially torn right adductor longus."

Report: Denver Broncos ‘love’ Carson Wentz (Predominantly Orange)

"Well, this is at least fun to talk about…According to Broncos insider Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the team has taken a significant liking to North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz. In fact, Klis says he hears that the Broncos ‘love’ Wentz. The question isn’t whether or not the Broncos like or even ‘love’ Wentz."
