The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, like how the team made a quick shift to their ‘last resort’ at left tackle
The Cleveland Browns again made some moves to their roster, but this wasn’t the traditional move. Instead, they slid left guard Joel Bitonio over to left tackle and his position now looks like it will go to his successor at Nevada, Austin Corbett.
The move needed to be made, but highlighted how poorly the front office handled the retirement of Joe Thomas. While he’s not easily replaceable, they didn’t add a true left tackle in the draft or free agency and that could hurt them.
Yes, Bitonio will likely do the job well, but left guard won’t be as good — even though they spent the No. 33 pick on Corbett, he’s just not up to Bitonio’s standard.

Cleveland Browns News
It was hardly a week ago when the Cleveland Browns said they weren’t going to move Joel Bitonio to left tackle unless they had to. Then they saw Shon Coleman play the position and ‘Plan Z’ was thrown into effect immediately.
The Cleveland Browns have had a lot of players stand out so far during the early portions of training camp. Not all are getting the credit they deserve, like these three players we discuss here.
"“To me, I don’t really feel like he’s a rookie,” running back Carlos Hyde said.“Usually, rookies come in and be all kind of lost, just trying to feel their way out. I think Nick understands what’s going on. He understands what being a pro is, and he’s definitely been on top of the playbook, been on top of his game, so he’s been doing a pretty good job.”"
Nick Chubb is an old soul and is earning the respect of his teammates with his approach to the game. He will win even more people over when he starts bowling over linebackers.
This one was already answered, but our own Dan Justik was asking what the Browns were going to do is Shon Coleman started to struggle in the preseason. Apparently, the coaching staff saw enough in roughly a week of practices.
