The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including the team adding depth, but then shopping some as well
After making some big moves on Tuesday, the Cleveland Browns got right back to work on Wednesday. They added a couple of players to help fill out their roster with some experienced depth.
First was tight end Demetrius Harris, formerly of the Kansas City Chiefs. John Dorsey reached back to a familiar spot here as he brings in a player he knew from his time with the Chiefs.
Another player with who the staff is familiar is linebacker Adarius Taylor. The Browns added the former Tampa Bay Buccaneer, but he actually started his career with the Carolina Panthers, where he was on the same team as defensive coordinator Steve Wilks — who was a defensive assistant at the time.

After these moves were made, reports came out that they may be shopping defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah — which could eliminate some of their newfound depth.

Cleveland Browns News
"“Following Tuesday night’s trade for Odell Beckham Jr., the Browns are signing ex-Kansas City Chiefstight end Demetrius Harris to a two-year contract, according to multiple local reporters. ESPN first reported the deal.”"
This move is all about replacing Darren Fells who was released not too long ago. Harris gives them a big blocker who also has a lot of experience on special teams.
"“Ogbah, drafted with the first pick of the second round in the 2016 NFL Draft, became somewhat expendable when the Browns acquired Vernon in a deal with the Giants. “"
The idea that Ogbah is expendable isn’t great. Last season, depth was an issue on the defensive line. That will be the case again if they ship off the former second-round pick.
"“The problem with Silver is that he’s so transparently in the tank for Jackson that he is completely divorced from reality. Silver simply cannot accept the fact that Jackson was a big part of the problem in Cleveland, and that firing Jackson was a big part of the solution.”"
Mike Silver should have no credibility. The way he torments Browns fans is ridiculous and it would be nice to see the NFL Network ask him to cool it. That’s all.
Taylor’s best season came in 2018 when he recorded 60 tackles for the Bucs. He was also a team captain and could take over the spot vacated by the release of Jamie Collins.
Like most Browns fans. Martin McConnell is excited about the recent moves and believes things are finally turning around for the franchise.
