Daily Dawg Tags: Training camp begins this week
Cleveland Browns fans can start getting excited as the team begins training camp later this week to commence what should be an interesting season.
Yesterday wasn’t the last Sunday without a Cleveland Browns football game, but it was indeed the last Sunday before training camp.
Strap in for a wild ride, as the Browns open training camp this Thursday. The team is coming off a 1-15 season and there are three quarterbacks all competing for one job. It should be a fun time.
While there will always be drama surrounding this team, 2017 has actually been a tame year for this franchise. The offseason went by without any horrible news, and the front office selected some elite talent in the draft. No one knows if the moves will pay off, but it’s better than the team’s biggest move being the signing of a washed up quarterback.
The Browns play their first preseason game August 10, which will give fans a great look at all three quarterbacks. The second game isn’t until August 21, so there should be plenty of storylines emerging about the position during that break.
Browns fans can have fun this fall by entering the season with low expectations, because if things turn out great it’s a wonderful surprise and if things go bad there’s always next year.
With camp just a few days away, we take a look at the news surrounding the Browns and the rest of the NFL in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
