The Daily Dawg tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Joe Thomas still being undecided about his future
All-Pro left tackle Joe Thomas is the best player on the Cleveland Browns roster. He’s also nearing the end of his spectacular career, and has openly discussed the fact that he isn’t sure about returning for the 2018 NFL Season.
The Browns surely want him back, but Thomas ended the 2017 season on IR and also said memory loss is becoming an issue for him. Health is definitely the No. 1 concern here, so it’s good that Thomas is taking that into heavy consideration.
If factors such as the roster around him weigh heavily into his decision, than it could be a good sign that he’s excited about the recent moves the Browns made. On Friday that acquired receiver Jarvis Landry, quarterback Tyrod Taylor and defensive back Damarious Randall.
All three players fill a position of need, and could help lure the 10-time Pro Bowl offensive lineman back for one more season. While Thomas is going to root for the team no matter what, it would seem like he would rather be a part of any turnaround they’re able to have.

Cleveland Browns News
The flurry of trades didn’t end on Friday. Cleveland was back at it again on Saturday, this time to send nose tackle Danny Shelton to the New England Patriots.
Tom Moore digs deeper into the moves made by Cleveland and discusses how the team fared in their moves.
A 7-round mock draft for the Cleveland Browns following their trades this weekend. Their needs may have slightly changed, so how does this affect their selections?
"What Thomas didn’t say is that the moves will lead him to return for another season. Thomas told Pat McManamon of ESPN.com that the conditions for his decision remain the same despite Friday’s moves."
"You never really know what an NFL offseason day will bring, and Friday brought a torrent of Browns-related fun. DeShone Kizer is out after one unfortunate year as the starter. Tyrod Taylor is in as the “bridge” to whichever quarterback they draft in the first round. Jarvis Landry and his 100 catches a year are on the way to help out whoever’s slinging it for the Browns in 2018 and (likely) beyond."
"Sherman was released by the Seattle Seahawks earlier in the week after the team decided it wanted to give the veteran an early start on free agency. The defensive back has been among the league’s best for the last five years, becoming a lockdown defender and face of Seattle’s Legion of Boom secondary. He’s been as excellent as he’s been topical, boisterous on the field (backed up by his play) and outspoken off it."
