Way too early 2020 Cleveland Browns bold predictions
The Cleveland Browns are still in the midst of their roster construction for the 2020 NFL season. With free agency kicking off this past week and over one month until the NFL draft, it felt like the right time for some way too early bold predictions.
The Cleveland Browns started off free agency with a bang. Newly crowned general manager Andrew Berry wasted little to no time in showing Browns fans what he was about. Berry acquired two high-end talents by bringing tight end Austin Hooper and right tackle Jack Conklin into the fold on the first day of free agency. These are the kinds of moves that make the Browns a better football team the moment the contracts were signed.
In addition to the day-one starters that were added to the offense, Berry quickly upgraded the backup quarterback position by bringing in Case Keenum. The veteran quarterback has previously worked with head coach Kevin Stefanski during his time as the starting quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings. This will prove to be invaluable during the installation process of training camp for incumbent starter Baker Mayfield.
In the subsequent days that followed, Berry began the reconstruction of the safety and linebacker positions. Berry acquired safeties Karl Joseph and Andrew Sendejo, as well as inside linebacker B.J. Goodson. The defensive additions didn’t stop there as two cornerbacks, Kevin Johnson and Donovan Olumba were added to the mix. Berry also added stout defensive tackle Andrew Billings to help bolster the run defense.

With the majority of the Browns’ perceived holes plugged in the first few days of free agency, fans were able to get a clearer picture of the vision Berry has for this year’s team.
While it is still early in the offseason process, the results have been impressive thus far. Berry has been able to build up some goodwill with the fans and that can go a long way in the upcoming months.
With the draft just over a month away there will still be major additions, as well as some possible subtractions to make room for incoming players.
But now that the new league year is upon us, perhaps it’s time to take a stab at some way too early bold predictions for 2020. Here we go Brownies, here we go!
