The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s stories include Jabrill Peppers and Denzel Ward teaming up and more.

The Cleveland Browns drafted a player from The Ohio State University for the first time since 2009 when they drafted Denzel Ward in the most recent NFL Draft.

Most of the talk when the Browns drafted Ward was how he would feel playing with Baker Mayfield. Mayfield stirred up Ohio State players and fans after he planted an Oklahoma University flag on Ohio State’s 50 yard-line logo after Oklahoma beat Ohio State 31-16 this past year.

But Ward will be playing directly with an even bigger rival from college in former Michigan Wolverine Jabrill Peppers. That is our featured story of the day, but there was other news surrounding the Browns.

Damarious Randall has made some headlines regarding his opinion about the NBA Finals and what he will do if one certain team wins the championship.

The Browns made a lot of moves this offseason, so what does their group of safeties look like heading into the 2018 season?

Those stories and more can be found in today’s edition of Daily Dawg Tags.
