The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news that you need to know, including former Browns linebackers’ career likely being over.

The Cleveland Browns organization received some interesting news on Wednesday when it was announced that their linebacker Mychal Kendricks was being charged with insider trading.

Instead of seeing what punishment these charges may bring for Kendricks, the organization decided to release the linebacker hours after the announcement was made.

Entering the season with one of the best linebacker corps in the league, this news was a big hit to the team’s talented defense.

"On one hand, it’s admirable that Browns linebacker Mychal Kendricks fully admitted to engaging in insider trading. On the other hand, he may have had no choice but to accept guilt in lieu of retaining a hired gun to fire shotgun blasts at the clay pigeon of reasonable doubt."

Although the Browns will be playing very few starters, if any at all, against the Lions on Thursday night, there will be some interesting story lines to follow throughout the game. Especially with Baker Mayfield getting his first start, and maybe only start for a while, in a Browns uniform.
