Daily Dawg Tags: Joe Schobert has better chance to re-sign with Cleveland Browns?
By Dan Justik
The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including Joe Schobert having a better chance to re-sign with the Browns.
One of the biggest storylines of the 2020 offseason for the Cleveland Browns is going to be Joe Schobert‘s free agency. Despite being a leader of the Cleveland Browns defense, it looked like Schobert was bound to leave in free agency under John Dorsey.
Now that Dorsey is out as the general manager and Andrew Berry has taken over, it seems like there is a better chance that Schobert returns to Cleveland. The biggest question is how much would the Browns be willing to spend on Schobert?
Money was the biggest hangup between Schobert’s representatives and Dorsey’s regime. Although Schobert is the leader of the defense and is excellent in pass coverage, he has struggled as a tackler and does not make as many impact plays in run defense as some would hope.

Will the Browns try to re-sign LB Joe Schobert now that Andrew Berry is GM? Hey, Mary Kay! – Mary Kay Cabot, Cleveland.com
"But the fact Berry was involved in drafting him in 2016 should help. The two sides will likely touch bases soon, possibly at the NFL Combine beginning Feb. 24 in Indianapolis, where plenty of league business is done."
Berry’s connection with Schobert will likely play a role in the decision of trying to keep Schobert in Cleveland. Berry has said he wants to be aggressive in talent acquisition, so it wouldn’t be surprising if that is the same case in retaining talent. It may not have happened under Dorsey, but Schobert could land the big payday under Berry.

"Wherever Berry has been, going all the way back to his days with the Colts, tight ends — plenty of them, at that — have been a priority. With Stefanski in place alongside him, that will carry over into 2020 with the Browns."
