The Cleveland Browns are looking much improved on paper this coming season but it’s not just new players to get excited about, as Larry Ogunjobi reminds us

Big names have dominated the headlines over the past two seasons for the Cleveland Browns. Last year, it was Odell Beckham, Jr., and Olivier Vernon joining the team and increasing the hype surrounding them. That was even before adding Greedy Williams via the draft.

This offseason, it was Austin Hooper, Jack Conklin, Andrew Billings, and Karl Joseph in free agency. They also hit some big picks in the draft, landing Jedrick Wills and Grant Delpit. All the additions have hopes high, but there are some returning players who shouldn’t be slept on.

One such athlete is Larry Ogunjobi who is looking to continue to build on what has been a solid start to his NFL career. Despite struggling at times in 2019, Ogunjobi posted his second-straight season with 50-plus tackles and 5.5 sacks.

And with the addition of Billings to play more of the one-technique role, Ogunjobi will be freed up to get after the quarterback even more this season. He’s also putting in the work as he was recently seen in an Instagram video posted by Dr. Sharif Tabbah, who is known for working with players such as Von Bell, Alvin Kamara, and Mark Ingram.

What’s most impressive about the workout is the strobe glasses being worn. Dr. Tabbah says these block his vision which intimidates some of the muddiness he’ll be seeing when fighting at the line of scrimmage.

Ogunjobi is entering his fourth season after being taken as a third-round pick out of Charlotte in 2017. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 305-pounds, he has an impressive mix of size, speed, and athleticism which has helped him become a fan-favorite.

Next. Browns are turning into SEC of the North. dark

This season looms large for Ogunjobi as he enters the final season fo his rookie contract and should he again rack up a solid amount of sacks from the interior of the line, he will be getting ready for a big payday.
