The Cleveland Browns begin training camp today to begin what appears to be a season in which the team could take a giant leap forward.

Hop aboard the optimism train because the Cleveland Browns take the field today in Berea in what should be a fun day for all in attendance.

The team is filled with fresh young talent and Browns fans are ready for some football. The team has obviously not done great in the recent past, but everyone in Northeast Ohio still loves their Browns.

The main competition fans will be focusing on is at the quarterback position, go figure, and Cody Kessler enters camp as the number one guy. He is not set in stone as the starter, so it will be interesting to see if DeShone Kizer or Brock Osweiler can win the starting job, even though Kizer is a rookie and Osweiler’s contract likely won’t be picked up in 2018 even if he has a solid season.

There is also a great quarterback class projected to come out in next year’s NFL Draft, but this team is not in tank-mode as it was a year ago. The goal is to win, or at least to do better than the 1-15 debacle seen a year ago.

We take a look at the final pre-camp stories surrounding the Browns and the rest of the NFL in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
