The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including two Browns receivers taking different approaches to recovery.
Cleveland Browns wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry both made it known at the end of the 2019 season that they were both playing with injuries. Although they were the two leading receivers for the Browns, Beckham and Landry were being hampered by their injuries.
Beckham suffered through hip and groin injuries during the season, and it was known he had the injuries during training camp. However, instead of repairing the injuries before the season, Beckham dealt with the injuries throughout the entire season.
Landry also dealt with a hip injury throughout the season and revealed at the end of the season he would potentially need surgery. However, despite Landry's injury, the receiver did not want to miss a game because he felt he would let down his teammates.

While Odell Beckham Jr. underwent surgery on Tuesday morning to repair his core muscle injury, his best friend Jarvis Landry won’t need a procedure to repair his hip, a league source told cleveland.com.
It was expected Beckham would undergo surgery for his core injuries because it would be an eight-week recovery. However, Landry avoiding surgery will be great news for the Browns and Landry because he is avoiding a potential eight month recovery that could have caused him to miss part of the 2020 season.
The Cleveland Browns are rumored to be closing in on hiring their general manager, and George Paton appears to be a leading candidate. Frank Teriaca believes a potential Paton hiring would add credibility to a scrutinized Browns front office.
Kitchens and Judge worked together at Mississippi State in 2005, and during his many stops Kitchens worked nearly everywhere on the offensive side of the ball. Judge has yet to hire a tight ends coach and Kitchens coached that position when he and Judge were together in Starkville.
Although Freddie Kitchens proved that he was not suited to be a head coach, and even potentially not suited to be an offensive coordinator, he has proven to be a solid positions coach during his NFL coaching career. His relationship with Joe Judge should help the rookie head coach learn from the difficulties Kitchens dealt with.
Kevin Stefanski's coaching staff is starting to come together, and that will reportedly include Bill Callahan as the offensive line coach. Randy Gurzi thinks that Callahan coaching an offensive line that struggled in 2019 will lead to great results for the Browns.
