The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including their apparent interest in defensive end Jadeveon Clowney
A former No. 1 overall pick, Clowney has been visiting several teams but so far hasn’t gotten anyone to bite on his $20 million per year asking price. Because of that, he’s now asking for less and the Browns are one team that was in the running.
In fact, one report suggests it nearly happened — and that the possibility might not be dead. 3

For Cleveland, that would give them two No. 1 overall picks at defensive end with Clowney and Myles Garrett. It would also bring into question what they do with Olivier Vernon, who is the current starter and is making a lot of money himself.
Of course, that’s not a bridge we need to cross just yet. As for the Clowney news, that story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns News
"“The Cleveland Browns have positioned themselves as a potential suitor for Jadeveon Clowney, who has lowered his asking price from more than $20 million per season to as low as $17 million, ESPN reported.”"
Citing a tweet from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Botte says the Browns are not only potential suitors but that there was nearly a deal in place. It would be pricey but putting Clowney and Myles Garrett together would be fun.
"“I think anything is possible on draft day, including trying to trade for Williams if their top targets at offensive tackle are gone. However, I do believe that one of their top choices will be there at No. 10 and that they’ll stay there and select the heir apparent to Joe Thomas. Again, Andrew Berry will aggressively try to upgrade this roster, and I expect him to wheel and deal on draft day.”"
Mary Kay is right to assume Andrew Berry will be active on draft day. He said he would be aggressive and so far, he has lived up to that promise. There’s no reason to think he will stop once the draft comes around. Even if he doesn’t land Williams or trade the No. 10 pick, expect Berry to make plenty of phone calls.
