The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including the Browns having a major roadblock with Jadeveon Clowney.
Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry has had a crazy start in his new role, as he has been super aggressive when it comes to adding talent to the roster. He has added some big names to the roster, and may not be done, as the Browns have been connected to Jadeveon Clowney.
Clowney was one of the top free agents available when free agency opened in mid-March. However, he still remains unsigned, and there has been little momentum for Clowney to get a new contract in the near future.
The Browns were reportedly in negotiations with Clowney and may have been the closest to signing the free agent defensive end. Cleveland could decide to circle back and restart negotiations with Clowney, but it seems like there is a holding pattern with Clowney at this time.

"In reality, the roadblock to the Browns — or any other suitor for that matter during the coronavirus pandemic — signing Clowney is the inability to bring him for a visit with team doctors. Clowney has had to undergo surgery on both knees since entering the league."
Clowney has dealt with a fair share of injuries during his career, including a sports hernia issue in 2019. Without the Browns or any other team getting a physical completed on Clowney before signing a deal, it could cause Clowney to be without a deal until teams can get him in for a medical check.
The Browns have several quarterback needy teams in front of them during the 2020 NFL Draft, and it could help them land their top player on their draft board. Greg Newland wonders if Jordan Love could help the Browns out even more on draft night.
"I mean, how does Berry not take one of the four hot-prospect tackles right here? “I agree,” one Browns-watcher on another team said Saturday. “But they love that Boise tackle, and maybe they think they can get him in the second round.” What an apt pick: With the 41st overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Browns select Ezra Cleveland, tackle, Boise State."
The Cleveland Browns are widely expected to take an offensive tackle with the No. 10 pick in the draft. However, if King is the correct and they do love Ezra Cleveland, the team could decide to take the best player available. The biggest concern with that line of thinking is if Cleveland is selected prior to Cleveland’s second-round pick, leaving the team scrambling for an offensive tackle.
With people stuck at home while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, people have been left trying to find ways to take time out of their day. Elliot Kennel tries to help by putting together the best Browns game from the 1970s to watch.
