Which 3 Cleveland Browns veterans should be worried?
The Cleveland Browns are scheduled to begin their training camp on July 28th. Reporting will be staggered with rookies reporting first, then injured veterans, and then followed by the rest of the roster.
Everyone will undergo Covid-19 testing two days before they will be allowed to participate. Surely 2020 will just let everything go forward as planned.
Assuming that everything remains all systems go between now and training camp, the Browns will have some big decisions to make. Some of the positional groups will have rooms that will need to be thinned out. Also, with two less preseason games than they normally have to evaluate a roster, the front office and the coaching staff will be making some of these cuts based on philosophy and prognostication rather than on-field performance.
There is also still a very real possibility that there will no preseason games. If that proves to be the case, then most of the personnel decisions will be based on drills and inner-squad scrimmages. Also, it is going to be an uphill battle for undrafted free agents to make the roster this season. Those young players will still have a chance to be added to the practice squad and continue their NFL dreams.
The veteran players that make this list will not have that luxury. So what positional groups have rooms that are so crowded that these veteran players could find themselves a casualty of the dreaded numbers game? What incoming rookies could be the reason these veterans find themselves on the outside looking in?
