"Thursday, when the Browns introduced their trio of new coordinators, it sounded like they got the message.“To me, it is pretty simple,” offensive coordinator Todd Monken said. “I have always chosen places based on the people and the opportunity to win.”"
The Browns new coaches are singing a different tune than most of the previous Browns coaches. The new coaching staff is setup with a team that is prepared to make the playoffs, not to start a rebuild. With the roster the Browns have, the new coaches have a great opportunity to make a bigger name for themselves.
One of the sentiments that Browns offensive coordinator echoed the most in his press conference was the presence of the RPO. Randy Gurzi believes that the RPO will be more prevalent in 2019 than it was in 2018 for the Browns.
"Wilks said he would have liked more time, but that the NFL is “a production-based league and we didn’t win enough games.” His chances of winning more games would have been helped by better quarterback play, which makes it unsurprising to hear that the presence of Baker Mayfield helped make the Cleveland job an attractive one to Wilks."
It is interesting to hear a defensive coordinator say that his team’s quarterback was a main reason to join that staff. But Wilks believes that with Mayfield, he and the rest of the Browns have a much better chance to win games.
There are some Cleveland Browns fans that see wide receiver as a need this off-season. There are others that think the Browns already have the wide receiver corps needed to win games. But Cleveland could look at these late-round wide receivers that could pay off for the Browns.
