The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know. Today’s top story is about Tyrod Taylor and how his teammates approve of him.
We are inching closer to the start of training camp and fans are ready to see the new version of the Cleveland Browns. Those who already have been involved in the practices have been happy with what they have seen.
Of course the biggest reason for hope is that there’s someone under center who inspires confidence, Tyrod Taylor.
The former Buffalo Bills quarterback is arguably the best player they’ve had under center since returning to the NFL in 1999 and he’s already getting the respect from his teammates he’ll need to succeed.

"Wide receiver Jarvis Landry took his turn Thursday on The Rich Eisen Show when asked how Taylor looked during the offseason.“Amazing,” Landry told Eisen. “Amazing, man. His leadership, his arm, his accuracy and he’s ready, man. He’s the starting quarterback, and I’m sure that, obviously, the decision is up to [head coach] Hue [Jackson] and the offensive staff, and stuff like that. But I’m sure they’ve been highly impressed with [what] he’s done through OTAs and minicamp.”"
This is no surprise for anyone who has ever paid attention to Taylor. He’s a smart quarterback who can make some impressive throws. He’s also a strong leader. He’s going to be a really good quarterback this season.
Martin McConnell likes the players the Browns have on their staff, and he thinks head coach Hue Jackson should as well. The problem is, Jackson has no more excuses for extended failures, so he has to get it right or be gone.
Chris Markoch details the five people who have been the biggest villains to hurt the Cleveland Browns over the course of their existence.
"New general manager John Dorsey finally turned in a card for a quarterback — the first time the Browns have drafted one in the first round since selecting Johnny Manziel in 2014 — by taking the Heisman Trophy winner out of Oklahoma No. 1 overall."
The plan is to keep Baker on the bench, but can he show enough to change the team’s mind? Probably not, but until the preseason starts and we see how he plays, that’s a whole lot easier to say.
