Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
The news around the New England Patriots has been nothing but positive since they signed quarterback Cam Newton. The move was brilliant by them but the timing was even better.
Newton’s signing made it to where everyone has glossed over the fact that they were given a hefty fine, and stripped of a draft pick, for illegally filming a game between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals last season.
Instead of talking about them illegally filming another team once again, the news is all about how they made themselves contenders once again — even with Tom Brady heading to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Still, the fact that no one is harping on this doesn’t mean the punishment wasn’t severe, because it was. That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns News
"“The NFL fined the New England Patriots $1.1 million and took away a third-round pick in the 2021 draft among the punishments for their television crew’s filming the field and sideline during a Dec. 8 game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns.”"
Let’s be honest, the Bengals were the worst team in the NFL last season and the Browns were also a mess as they each finished with a top-10 pick. That being said, this was a random game to be filming to try and get an edge, but to each their own.
Before signing with the Patriots, Newton reportedly spoke with the Browns. Nothing came to fruition, and they likely had no intention of signing him. Still, flirting with a former MVP who happened to work out with Odell Beckham, Jr. this offseason could be enough to force Baker Mayfield to take the next step in his development.
Casey Kinnamon continues his countdown to the 2020 season with the Browns best player to ever wear No. 76 — and this isn’t a position you normally think of with such a number.
Is it ever too early for a mock draft? Sure. But that doesn’t stop them from coming as we bring you a way-too-early 7-round 2021 NFL Mock Draft.
