The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news that you need to know, including Corey Coleman going down as the face of the Sashi Brown era.
Corey Coleman was the first player that former Cleveland Browns Executive Vice President of football operations Sashi Brown drafted. It was a move that excited fans because of what Coleman could bring to the offense.
In his two seasons with the Browns, Coleman was a massive disappointment. Drafted in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, there were expectations that he could become the team’s next play-maker.

But after injuries kept derailing his seasons and some off-field incidents, Coleman was going to be out of Cleveland sooner rather than later.
The man that was responsible for drafting Coleman was fired from his position after two years. In his two seasons of making roster decisions, Brown put together rosters that went 1-31.
No matter what else happens in Coleman’s career, he will always be tied to Brown in the minds of Cleveland Browns fans.
Our featured article reasons why Coleman will go down as the face of the Sashi Brown era in Cleveland.

"That Coleman is perhaps the player most associated with 0-16 isn’t necessarily fair — after all, he only played in 9 games last season — but in many ways, it is fitting. Cleveland’s winless season marked the culmination of an unprecedented roster teardown orchestrated by former general manager Sashi Brown — a teardown that began with the 2016 draft, which Cleveland entered with the No. 2 overall pick."
Being the first draft pick of the Brown-era in Cleveland, it seemed that no matter what Coleman would be heavily associated to it – either for good reasons or for bad reasons. It is an era that will certainly be remembered by Browns fans.
The Cleveland Browns organization have received a lot of criticism for who they have drafted in the first round over the past few years. Randy Gurzi takes a look at the Browns’ picks to see if the criticism is truly earned.
"Landry, who played with Beckham at LSU, has been lobbying for the Browns to trade for him. He said he’ll continue to do so, and the two will meet up in New York on Thursday night in the preseason opener."
Since the two have such a good friendship dating back to their college days, of course Jarvis Landry will mention the possibility of Odell Beckham Jr. coming to Cleveland. Although it is unlikely, the off-season workout videos do raise some eyebrows.
It was obvious that general manager John Dorsey was not Coleman’s biggest fan, making it seem obvious why the Browns traded the wide receiver. But there are some other possibilities as to why the Browns were motivated to move on from the 24-year-old.
