The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Giants GM Dave Gettleman taking a subtle shot at Odell Beckham, Jr.
Perhaps he was just trying to deflect blame. That may be the case be exactly what happened when New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman insinuated that new Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. created a ‘culture problem’ in the team’s locker room.
And can we blame him for trying to deflect? Gettleman has been poked fun at since taking over the Giants and making several questionable moves. He sent away some of their best defenders, refused to lock up Landon Collins and has attached himself unapologetically to an aged and declining Eli Manning.
On top of all that, he traded away one of the hardest receivers to cover in all the NFL — just months after signing him to a massive extension and mere weeks after claiming he wasn’t signed to be traded. Gettleman has looked bad all offseason and by trying to blame others, he only looks worse.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns News
"“There’s more to it than just collecting talent. There is a cultural thing to it that’s critical. I have not been on a team that’s gone to a Super Bowl that’s had a culture problem.”Did he have one with the Giants?“Not anymore,” he said with a satisfied smile."
This one should be met with an eye roll. Yes, OBJ was overly emotional at times but outside of fighting a kicking net, there were no reports of him being a problem with the Giants. Gettleman just made a bad trade which was met with scorn and he’s now trying to save face. End of story.
With the 2019 NFL Draft just a few days away, Martin McConnell looks at what Juan Thornhill brings to the table. The Virginia safety is suddenly becoming a name to watch for the Browns, but is he a good fit?
"“The first-round selections of 2014 did not pan out. We can all acknowledge that.But the first pick of the second round was a different story.Cleveland has seen plenty of change within its roster since 2014, which seems like both yesterday and ages ago. One piece it added in that year’s draft is still around, and in a very important way.”"
There have been mixed results for the Browns on this list, but the player who Shook is speaking of in his opening is left guard Joel Bitonio who has done a fantastic job for them.
Another potential target in the 2019 NFL Draft for Cleveland is Rock Ya-Sin. How does he fit their system and can he start alongside Denzel Ward?
