The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including some familiar names landing on the Hall of Fame ballot
Throughout their storied history, the Cleveland Browns have had some good players on their roster. Of course, the majority of them seemed to be during their first tenure in the NFL.
In that span, Clay Matthews, Jr. was one of the bigger stars of the modern era of football. Since their return, Josh Cribbs has been one of the more popular players.
Now, each has a shot at making it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as they headline some of the candidates who will be on the ballot.

Cleveland Browns News
"“Clay Matthews Jr. and Josh Cribbs headline the list of former Browns eligible for the Hall of Fame class of 2020.The Pro Football Hall of Fame announced the 122 modern-era nominees eligible for consideration Thursday afternoon.Matthews, who will become the first non-Hall of Famer to be inducted into the Browns ‘Ring of Honor’ at FirstEnergy Stadium Sept. 22 when his son Clay Matthews III and the LA Rams visit, has been a semifinalist for the Hall on three occasions.”"
There are a few other names eligible which include Eric Metcalf and Earnest Byner. Here’s to hoping some former Browns get called to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
"“Beckham said he got this scoop from players who were on the Browns in 2017, and that the high ankle sprain he suffered led to a cascade of injuries that ‘changed [his] life forever.'”"
If there’s any truth to this, then it’s just a despicable act by Williams — who was front and center in the BountyGate scandal while in New Orleans.
"“My short answer: Yes. My longer answer: The Browns showed just that Sunday against the Titans even if the numbers didn’t necessarily reflect it.When you look at the box score, you’ll see the Titans out-gained the Browns, 123-102, on the ground. That’s slightly worse than the 118 rushing yards per game Cleveland surrendered last season, but it never felt like the Titans had control of the game from that standpoint.”"
The Cleveland defense is much improved this season. That’s hard to believe after they fell apart on Sunday, but they were simply on the field far too long. They should be better on Monday — especially with a depleted Jets team.
The Jets will be without quarterback Sam Darnold and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa. Then C.J. Mosley, Quinnen Williams, and Le’Veon Bell all missed practice on Thursday meaning there could be a very limited Jets team on the opposite side of the field.
