The Daily Dawg Tags brings you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including what the offensive lineup could end up looking like in 2020.
Entering the 2019 season, the Cleveland Browns had many expectations surrounding them mainly based on the fact they had so many weapons on the offensive side of the ball. After the addition of Odell Beckham Jr. in March 2019, the Browns was expected to explode with production.
However, the addition of Beckham to the rest of the offensive talent could not help the Browns overcome a lack of preparation. The Cleveland Browns bought into the expectations of their talent and did not put in the work needed to be a top team in the NFL.
The Browns will have a clean slate in 2020 with a new front office and coaching staff with the hope that the players will always be ready to play on game day. They also still boast the same offensive weapons, as well as some new pieces up front to make life easier for Baker Mayfield.

The Cleveland Browns offense will have hardly any competitions on the offensive side of the ball, so the lineup is widely expected to be the same for everybody. The biggest question is at right guard, which could become a competition between three players by the time training camp rolls around.
Every person and company around the world is faced with extreme difficulties during the COVID-19 pandemic in several ways. As Elliot Kennel discusses, much like the rest of the NFL, the Browns need to prepare for how to handle a difficult economic market in 2020, which could affect the future of the team.
"In legal filings made on Wednesday, according to Sports Business Daily, XFL owner Vince McMahon responded to a lawsuit from Oliver Luck, who is claiming his firing as the league’s commissioner qualified as a breach of his contract. In his rebuttal, McMahon laid out the reasons why he believes Luck’s firing was justified, including that the signing of Callaway violated the league’s policy on employing troubled players."
Following his release from the Cleveland Browns, it was hard to imagine Antonio Callaway finding another job in the NFL after being suspended for violating the substance abuse policy, as well as dealing with a knee injury. He landed in the XFL, however, it appears he was not ready to be on a roster, which has become a part of legal dispute between Vince McMahon and Oliver Luck. Callaway did not do anything wrong signing a deal in the XFL, so it is odd to see his name dragged into the legal dispute following the league’s demise.
