The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, with today’s focusing on recapping the mandatory minicamp
It wasn’t much football, but we’ll take anything at this point. The Cleveland Browns wrapped up their three-day minicamp on Thursday, which gave us a glimpse of the team we will all be cheering on come the fall.
We also got to see a good amount of routes being run by Odell Beckham, Jr. who is already proving to have a good rapport with Baker Mayfield. There was also new defensive players on the field such as rookie Greedy Williams and defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.
With those three days now behind us, we look back at the minicamp and see what we learned about the 2019 version of the Browns.

Cleveland Browns News
"As the Browns wrapped up their three-day mandatory minicamp on Thursday, Freddie Kitchens said it’s still too early to identify the team’s identity.“The identity of the team, I hope, falls in line of what I want to see out of our team,’’ he said. “I want to be the most physical team on the field. I want to play great defense. I want to move the ball. I want to be great on special teams. That kinds of sums it up.’’"
Cleveland worked to become more physical with the addition of Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson. Adding two new starters on defense should help them improve on this side of the ball — which is a must should they want to compete in the AFC North.
"“With much of the attention focused on receivers, running backs and No. 6, the big fellas up front are going overlooked in Cleveland.”"
The Browns are also trying to get more physical on the offensive line, which included them adding more depth to the offensive line. This depth has been overlooked, but those guys are used to doing the thankless work.
Since John Dorsey took over, we keep hearing about how much cap space the Browns have to do whatever they want. However, they still need to be careful not to overspend and hurt their chances of keeping some of their key players. With that in mind, Elliot Kennel asks if they should lock up Damarious Randall and Joe Schobert.
One of the more under the radar moves this offseason for Cleveland was the signing of linebacker Adarius Taylor. So far, he’s proving to be a smart signing as he was getting first-team reps on Thursday according to Dan Justik.
