Cleveland Browns News
"Coach Hue Jackson empowered his players to select their captains for the 2018 regular season, and despite being in only his second NFL season, Garrett was one of five permanent captains chosen, along with quarterback Tyrod Taylor, linebacker Christian Kirksey, offensive lineman Joel Bitonio and punter Britton Colquitt."
Saying Jackson ’empowered’ the team to select captains is a bit of a stretch. Most teams allow captains to be voted, so this is common practice. Still, it’s telling that the team is already looking to Tyrod Taylor as a captain. He should be the starter all year and has his teammates respect.
The Browns overhauled most of their roster, but a few positions could still use some work. Here are the three weakest spots heading into the 2018 NFL Season.
Dan Justik believes the Browns could solve their depth concerns at defensive end by targeting the recently released Anthony Zettel. He started all 16 games for the Lions last season and recorded 6.5 sacks.
Our own Martin McConnell looks at the hype around the Browns. He wants them to be good — just as bad as any of us. He’s just worried we may be expecting too much, too soon.
