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
The 2018 NFL Free Agency period has slowed down immensely. Most of the big name players are now off the board, so teams are now kicking the tires on the next tier of guys. The Cleveland Browns were a team making a lot of noise at first, but they seem ready to get the 2018 NFL Draft going.
So much so, the whole front office went to go watch USC quarterback Sam Darnold throw in shorts. Apparently that helps some teams decide if he can play or not, but doesn’t it seem like the tape of actual game action would be a better indicator?
Beyond that, the Browns were in the news for different reasons. They were leapfrogged in the draft as the New York Jets moved up from the No. 6 to the No. 3 spot. Previously some had speculated the Browns could try and land a signal caller at the fourth spot, but with the quarterback-needy Jets ahead of them, they may need to make that pick at No. 1.
Let’s look into that news, and much more with today’s edition of the Daily Dawg Tags.

Tom Moore looks at how the team looks on offense now that the front office made several moves which included landing a new quarterback, receiver and running back.
After staying home for the Pro Day workouts held by Josh Rosen of UCLA and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma, general manager John Dorsey and head coach Hue Jackson were front and center for Sam Darnold during his USC Pro Day.
"“I do think the Jets’ trade brings the discussion back to a QB for the Browns at No.1, and I do think they were at least considering Saquon Barkley at No. 1 because of the possibility that they could still get a QB they loved at No. 4, or at No. 3 if they moved up a spot before the Colts traded down from No. 3 to No. 6 with the Jets. Now, it appears the draft could go QB at 1, 2, and 3, giving the Browns their choice of Barkley, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Bradley Chubb at No. 4.”"
"The New England Patriots are acquiring receiver/returner Cordarrelle Patterson from the Oakland Raiders in a trade, with the teams expected to swap late-round draft picks, a league source confirmed to ESPN’s Field Yates.Bartstool Sports first reported that Patterson was expected to be traded to New England."
"Ayers started 20 games over the course of two seasons with the Buccaneers. He played in 24 games and missed four due to injury in both his 2016 and 2017 campaigns. During that time, the defensive end totaled 41 tackles and 8.5 sacks, though only two of those sacks came in 2017. His 2017 struggles were part of a season where the Bucs’ defense recorded just 22 sacks on the year."
