Cleveland Browns fans are focused on the quarterback competition, but whoever lines up under center will need some talented players at receiver.

A Cleveland Browns quarterback competition has become a tradition around these parts. Who wants anything else, besides everyone?

While Hue Jackson decides between three capable quarterbacks, there is the glaring problem that the team is without both its leading receivers from the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Both Gary Barnidge and Terrelle Pryor are no longer with this team, leaving Corey Coleman and Kenny Britt as the main targets this year. That is not a bad thing, but it is a bit alarming that the quarterbacks are left without sure-thing targets.

Britt had similar numbers to Pryor in 2016 while Coleman dealt with injuries, so Browns fans are left hoping someone in this receiving corps steps up and has a big season. That has been the case the past few seasons, but fans are hoping a player can have a big season and repeat that success for years to come.

We take a look at that and more in a Friday edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
