Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know
Jadeveon Clowney and the Cleveland Browns have been linked together all offseason. And even as the calendar brings us to the 4th of July weekend, the two are being connected by NFL insiders.
Throughout the offseason, the story hasn’t changed. Clowney wants to cash in and the Browns are the team that’s willing to pay him the most money.
He’s not hot on Cleveland but if he really does want to cash in, there’s really no better place for him to go.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“Still, disputed pay rate or not, it’s hard to ignore the usual suspects. The Cleveland Browns come to mind first. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Browns have offered the most money of any team to Clowney, and as recently as mid-June, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabotreported the team still has an interest.”"
The Browns continue to be mentioned as an option for Jadeveon Clowney and if it’s all about the money, this is where he’s going. However, there are the reports he doesn’t want to be in Cleveland, so it’s hard to predict.
"“Nobody will be roughing up Cleveland Browns punter Jamie Gillannext season, who is living up to his ‘Scottish Hammer’ nickname.The Browns second-year punter has been hitting the weight room this offseason and looks more like a linebacker than a specialist.”"
Even before these recent pictures that surfaced of Jamie Gillan, he looked like a gym rat. He’s no ordinary punter and that has endeared him to the fans in Cleveland.
"“ExtensionsMyles GarrettThe Browns picked up Garrett’s fifth-year option and now it’s time to talk extension. Perhaps in a normal summer, something would be done by now, but Garrett is poised to get big money.”"
Labbe elaborated on what ‘big money’ means, citing DeMarcus Lawrence’s five-year, $105 million contract, which might just be a starting point for the Browns, especially when you consider Garrett already has as many double-digit sack seasons as Lawrence — and only 8.5 fewer total sacks in four seasons fewer.
From the youth on the roster to a new coaching staff, the Browns are one of the teams that could have used a four-game preseason. The recent drop in games could cause issues for them says Dan Justik.
