Cleveland Browns rookies Myles Garrett, Jabrill Peppers and David Njoku got a taste of what it is like in town during Sunday night’s Cavaliers game.
The Cleveland Browns get back to work on Tuesday with the first of 10 OTAs, which will lead up to the three-day mandatory minicamp starting on June 13.
The Browns still have to work out contracts with rookies Jabrill Peppers, DeShone Kizer and David Njoku, but otherwise everything is moving along smoothly for the club, which is a nice change from previous offseasons.
The new guys have kept busy taking in some of the action around town, as Peppers and Njoku wre joined by fellow first-round pick Myles Garrett for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
It is good to see the new players out and about town, and the excitement level for the game (at least until the fourth quarter) gives them a nice taste of what it will be like for them once the Browns start winning.
The less said about the rest of Sunday night’s game the better, so let’s just move on to today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns news:
The Cleveland Browns may be considering moving Nate Orchard to defensive end, but even a position switch may not be enough for him to earn a roster spot.
The Cleveland Browns continue to be applauded for the work they have done in the offseason, which is a nice change from recent years.
The Cleveland Browns continued to work on the bottom of the roster on Friday by claiming offensive lineman Chris Barker off waivers. In a corresponding move, the club released defensive lineman Gabe Wright.
The Cleveland Browns continued their work by signing sixth-round draft pick Caleb Brantley to his rookie contract on Friday.
The Cleveland Browns added another piece to the puzzle on Friday as the club has signed No. 1 overall selection Myles Garrett to his rookie contract.
The Cleveland Browns recently signed defensive back Jason McCourty, adding some experience to the secondary for the 2017 season.
"What comes first: Tom Brady telling Bill Belichick he’s going to retire or Belichick telling Brady to retire or he’s going to release or trade him? There is going to be more pressure on Brady than at any time since he had to play well enough to keep Drew Bledsoe on the bench in 2001."
"By the time his two quarterbacks reported for the offseason program on April 10, new Broncos coach Vance Joseph had watched every NFL game rep Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian had taken. Joseph had seen all their practice reps too. He’d even talked to their college coaches. And that morning, he was there to tell them—and everyone else in the room—that all of it was about to be marginalized."
"A wise NFL executive once said the best trades are often the ones you don’t make. Another truism: It’s better to trade a player one year early rather than one year late. In the strange case of Richard Sherman and the Seahawks, I subscribe to the latter. It’s time for the verbose four-time Pro Bowl corner to move on from Seattle."
"Calvin Johnson and Marshawn Lynch left college a decade ago and went 10 picks apart in the first round of the 2007 NFL draft. But while Lynch reconsidered his retirement and eventually returned to football earlier this spring, Johnson, the Detroit Lions’ all-time leading receiver, said Saturday that he’s never once thought about joining his friend back on the field."
