Cleveland Browns: 5 players who could lose their job in 2019
The Cleveland Browns suddenly have a very competitive roster which means it will be hard to win jobs in 2019, especially for these five players
In years past, the Cleveland Browns have been scouring over their roster trying to find players capable of starting at every position. They haven’t always had the best candidates and oftentimes, there were players who shouldn’t be starting winning jobs pretty much by default.
When general manager John Dorsey came on board in December of 2017, that started to change. He understood the problem this team had with talent and proclaimed he was there to get ‘real players.’ This wasn’t just lip service as he’s completely overhauled the roster since his arrival.
There’s been so much turnover that Christian Kirksey and Joel Bitonio are now the most tenured players on the team and they’ve only been in Cleveland since the 2014 NFL Draft.
While that may seem shocking, the turnover had to be done. Year after year, the Browns were finishing in the AFC North cellar and Dorsey knew the only way to fix this was to tear this thing down to the studs — which is sadly something Browns fans are all too familiar with.
Unlike others who blew it up in The Land, Dorsey is making good on his promise to deliver a remodel that everyone will like. He’s landed a franchise quarterback, cornerstone defenders, and some electric wideouts.
With all these moves being made, the Browns are now in uncharted waters. They suddenly have enough talent that certain jobs could be in jeopardy due to a surplus of talent. Here, we will look at the top five players who could be playing for their job — whether that be their role as a starter, or on the team in general.
