The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including today’s story about a possible Myles Garrett extension on the way

Most of the talk this offseason has been about the newcomers in Berea. Head coach Kevin Stefanski, general manager Andrew Berry, and all the new players for the Cleveland Browns such as Austin Hooper, Jedrick Wills, and Grant Delpit have been int he spotlight.

With all that excitement, it’s easy to overlook the players who have been here for several years making noise — such as Myles Garrett.

The former No. 1 overall pick is anxious to get back on the field after a terrible ending to his third season in the NFL and he just learned recently the team is picking up the fifth-year option on his rookie deal.

That’s not surprising at all, and neither is the fact that Berry plans to extend him soon as well. That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Browns’ Andrew Berry to add more talent, likely to extend Myles Garrett; Odell Beckham in long-term plans & other takeaways — Mary Kay Cabot,

"“Great player, great person. Obviously, he did make a mistake last year that he’s learned from. But our confidence in and faith in Myles has not wavered and we’re looking to seeing what he does this year and certainly for years to come.’’"

Andrew Berry says that Myles Garrett is not only in the long-term plans, but called him a “pillar.” There’s no doubt the team will extend him, the only question is whether that happens this season or next. No. 95 is going nowhere.

There might be a reason why the Browns haven’t signed Jadeveon Clowney yet — Chad Porto, Factory of Sadness

"“Well, some of it has to do with being unable to bring him in for a pre-contract physical. Then there’s the constant string of nagging injuries that have some teams offering more team-friendly contracts or just staying away entirely.”"

Porto’s reasoning for not signing Clowney yet makes perfect sense. While it’s hard to argue that he’s a great presence on the field, it’s even tougher to argue that he’s been durable in his career. Without the ability to run him through a physical, Cleveland might just be thinking it’s best to hold off for now.
