Daily Dawg Tags: Cleveland Browns culture is changing
By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the news you need to keep up with your Cleveland Browns. Today’s stories center around a culture change taking place.
Things are starting to feel different for the Cleveland Browns, and many are noticing this. The changes could be attributed to the recent 2018 NFL Draft, but that’s not the case. That just solidified what was already a strong offseason.
Cleveland added talent all over their roster. There’s a new star receiver in Jarvis Landry, a legitimate starting quarterback in Tyrod Taylor and a strong running back in Carlos Hyde. They also have a new potential starting safety in Damarious Randall as well as some corner depth thanks to adding E.J. Gaines, T.J. Carrie and Terrance Mitchell.
Add a strong draft class to that group and suddenly things feel different for the Browns. Hope sell eternal, but this time the hope feels warranted as they added a franchise quarterback in Baker Mayfield, a potential shut down corner in Denzel Ward and a bruising back in Nick Chubb this past weekend.
That change in their culture, and other stories are highlighted in today’s Dawg Tags. Enjoy.
