Daily Dawg Tags: McCarron’s hat choice is apparently news


The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the news you need to know in order to keep up to date with the Cleveland Browns and the rest of the NFL

We are surely in a slow news cycle as there are multiple reports coming out that soon-to-be free agent A.J. McCarron has been spotted wearing a Cleveland Browns hat. It’s newsworthy because he plays quarterback and the team needs one, but more than one person reporting it shows how little is going on.

On top of that, he was of course traded to the Browns by the Cincinnati Bengals. That trade fell through, and now many hope the two find one another again.

Even during this slow tim, there’s still plenty of news to keep up with. So find out about McCarron’s choice of head covering and much more in today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.
