Daily Dawg Tags: Browns receivers have talent, but a lot of concerns
By Dan Justik
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s stories include Terry Pluto’s concerns with the Browns receivers and more.
The Cleveland Browns had arguably the worst group of wide receivers in the NFL last season. The three leading receivers for the Browns in 2017 was a running back and two tight ends.
New general manager John Dorsey made it a point of emphasis to improve the wide receiver position this offseason.
He traded for one of the best receivers in the NFL in Jarvis Landry and then signed him to a long-term deal. He also drafted a first round talent in the fourth round because of off-field concerns with Antonio Callaway.
Combining those two receivers with Josh Gordon and Corey Coleman gives the Browns a talented group of receivers heading into the 2018 season. But even with all of the talent at the position, The Plain Dealer’s Terry Pluto is worried about having a bunch of players with “personal/injury concerns.”
That story and more can be found in today’s edition of Daily Dawg Tags.
