2. Tretter continues to be a warrior
On Wednesday, the Cleveland Browns got a little bit of a scarer. Center J.C. Tretter was rolled up on during a play, which was shared on Twitter by 92.3 The Fan. He walked to the sideline and was visibly frustrated. There was a sigh of relief when he was able to get his ankle taped up and then got back on the practice field.

Thankfully, it seems like a non-issue and he was right back at it again on Thursday — which reminds us all just how much of a warrior this guy is. Tretter, who joined the team in 2017 after playing for the Green Bay Packers, is in the third and final year of his $16.75 million contract.
Last season, he showed off some incredible toughness as he continued to play in every game despite being banged up consistently. At one point, he even spent the week in a walking boot but still trotted out on the field and gave his all when Sunday rolled around.
That’s the kind of player who can inspire teammates, and should be kept around. As for Tretter’s opinion, he too would like to stay in The Land, saying he wants to continue playing for the Browns.
"“I love it here. Love the staff here. Love the guys here. It’s been a really good fit going into three years now. It’s been awesome. I would love to continue playing here.” — Tretter said via Nate Ulrich and Marla Ridenour, Beacon Journal/Ohio.com"
So far, Tretter says there have been no talks on a new deal but hopefully, they do come to terms on an extension soon, because his toughness is admirable — and his play is vastly underrated.
