By Randy Gurzi
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the news you need to know in order to keep up with the Cleveland Browns, including the idea of them getting a new stadium

The latest buzz around the Browns isn’t anything they will be doing on the field, but the field they will be playing on instead. The Browns front office is considering the possibility of building a new stadium.
Now, this isn’t anything that will happen soon, as the Browns have 10-years left on their lease in First Energy Stadium.
