For whatever reason, some people want there to be a quarterback controversy for the Cleveland Browns, which is the focus of today's Daily Dawg Tags
Instead, there are some Cleveland fans that think the signing of Case Keenum means Mayfield is going to be on a short leash. Today's Dawg Tags features a story where such a question about a battle is asked — and the reason has to do with Keenum's salary and experience with head coach Kevin Stefanski.
However, the real reason Keenum is here is to help teach Baker the new system and be ready to play in a pinch. He's a massive upgrade at the backup position and that's where he will stay.

Cleveland Browns News
"Despite the arrival of Keenum, a 10th-year pro, the Browns do not have a quarterback controversy on their hands. They’re 100% committed to Baker Mayfield and to giving him every opportunity to succeed. Keenum was signed to be a mentor to Mayfield, to help set the tone in the quarterback room and to help implement Kevin Stefanski’s system."
Mary Kay gives the right answer, as she says Cleveland is all-in on Baker Mayfield. The Case Keenum signing was a good thing. Let's keep it that way.
"Beckham to the 49ers seems unlikely, but never say never to an OBJ trade, whether it’s to San Francisco or elsewhere. The Browns have so much money locked up in the wide receiver position and that strategy goes against what Paul DePodesta preaches."
Dudukovich is as right here as Mary Kay was about the quarterback issue. OBJ shouldn't be going anywhere. However, the guy is polarizing so don't think the rumors are ever going to stop. Because they're not.
"There are no more excuses. The offensive line was given top priority, plus there are playmaking weapons everywhere. The Browns staff appears competent, savvy and dedicated to putting Capt. Mayfield in the best position to succeed."
While the team is much better, they do still need to add a left tackle to help Baker Mayfield, but Williams claim is correct. This is the year Baker Mayfield has to prove he's the future of the franchise. There are no excuses now.
