Daily Dawg Tags: Being careful with Coleman and Gordon


Spanning the virtual globe to bring you the latest news about the Cleveland Browns and the NFL – these are your Daily Dawg Tags for Thursday, Aug. 25.

The Cleveland Browns are set to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tomorrow night for the third preseason game of the summer.

Wide receivers Corey Coleman and Josh Gordon are expected to play in the game, which draws the question of how long they should be on the field. Neither is coming off a serious injury, but it would be terrible if either tweaked something that led to them missing any more time.

Gordon has some leeway given his four-game suspension he still has to serve, but Coleman is expected to be the team’s top receiver when the season begins September 11.

Let’s take a look at the news surrounding those two and more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.

Cleveland Browns must be careful with Coleman and Gordon

Cleveland Browns: 3 players to avoid in fantasy football

"As fantasy football drafts begin, team managers around the world are in full preparation mode, seeking the hidden treasures that can contribute to their team’s success.

Why the Browns would be foolish to trade Josh Gordon (NFL Spin Zone)

"Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was officially reinstated into the NFL earlier this month.

NFL news:

Colin Kaepernick throws shade at GM Trent Baalke (FanSided)

"Colin Kaepernick isn’t doing himself any favors this preseason in trying to win the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback job. Dealing with a sore arm (at times called a dead arm), Kaepernick has missed both preseason games. In addition, Kaepernick hasn’t shown desire to compete with last season’s starter Blaine Gabbert, who too has dual-threat capabilities to run Chip Kelly’s high-octane offense."

Joey Bosa takes next step towards 2017 NFL Draft (NFL Mocks)

"It’s become clear that the two sides are not going to budge in their respective stances. Still, the Chargers decided to make one last push in hopes of bringing a player they thought could become a key to their defense on board. Word is they upped their offer in hopes it would be enough to convince Bosa to finally end his holdout. Suffice to say the attempt fell on deaf ears. This latest setback not only continues to rob the team of a key contributor for 2016, but may end up costing them entirely."
