The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a potential return to London in 2020.

The NFL is making a more concerted effort to expand their footprint in the world, as they will have the Jacksonville Jaguars playing back-to-back games in London in 2020. There is also a decent possibility that the Cleveland Browns will be one of the teams traveling to London to play the Jaguars.

The Browns are slated to face the Jaguars on the road in 2020 and seem as one of the most likely to have their game moved to London. Jacksonville has already confirmed two of their home games, and they are unlikely to give up a home game against divisional opponents, making the Browns one of three teams to play in London.

The Browns last played in the NFL’s International Series in 2017. Cleveland played the Minnesota Vikings in London, losing to Minnesota 33-16. Cleveland’s known fan clubs around the world make them a solid option for the NFL to take overseas.

Report: Cleveland Browns could play Jacksonville Jaguars in London in 2020 – Matthew Florjancic, WKYC.com

"The Cleveland Browns could be making a return to the NFL’s international stage in the 2020 regular season.The Jacksonville Jaguars announced Tuesday that they will host back-to-back games at famed-Wembley Stadium in London during the 2020 season, and two of their opponents, the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers, have been reserved for the home fans in Florida."

It would not be surprising if the Browns are named one of the teams to travel to London to play against the Jaguars. Cleveland’s large fan base around the world, especially in London, will make it easy for the NFL to draw interest in the game. It will be a concern for the Browns, however, as most of the roster wasn’t on the team in 2017 and traveling to London for a game would be a new experience for several players.

Was Baker Mayfield able to change his national perception?

Baker Mayfield has been known to rub a lot of people the wrong way dating back to his days in college. Casey Kinnamon wonders if Mayfield’s time on radio row at the Super Bowl caused the national perception of him to change.

Browns’ Kevin Stefanski on Chad O’Shea, his new WR coach & passing game coordinator: ‘He has a unique knowledge of a successful program’ – Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com

"“He grinds on the tape, he spends a lot of time with his players on the nuances of the position. He’s kind of like that proverbial gym rat that spends a ton of time with the game,” Stefanski said. “That’s the qualities I saw in him early on in his coaching career.”"

Chad O’Shea will be coaching one of Cleveland’s most talented position groups with Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry leading the way. If O’Shea can get the best out of that group, he could be a big key to the success of the Browns offense in 2020.
