The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Freddie Kitchens being able to manage an extra workload.
Cleveland Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens earned the head coaching gig this offseason because of his creativity and effectiveness calling plays last season.
But now that he is controlling the entire team as well as remaining the team’s offensive play-caller, there is some concern that he may get overwhelmed being a first-time head coach.

"In addition to Monken, Kitchens has strong coordinators in Steve Wilks on defense and Mike Priefer on special teams that will enable him to focus on the offense. He also has an associated head coach in Campen with vast experience and a Super Bowl ring."
One of the biggest reasons Kitchens can manage play-calling duties as the head coach is because he did an excellent job of hiring his staff. There is plenty of experience on the staff that allows Kitchens to bounce around the team and not have to give extra attention to a certain area.
Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson has hired Drew Rosenhaus and Rosenhaus Sports as his new representation, which will make it more difficult for the Browns to get the solution they were hoping for with Johnson’s situation.

The addition of Sheldon Richardson made the starting defensive front better, but also made the team’s depth at defensive tackle much better from last season. But if either Richardson or Larry Ogunjobi suffer an injury, the depth of this position could return to being a major concern.
The Baltimore Ravens may be the defending AFC North champions, but some of their offseason comments give off the sense that they are already worrying about the Browns. With the amount of talent on Cleveland’s roster, it could be difficult for the Ravens to repeat as division champs.
