These 3 Cleveland Browns players are set to bounce-back
The Cleveland Browns were one of the most highly toted teams on paper going into the 2019-2020 season and were even predicted to go as far as the Super Bowl, however, after a vastly disappointing year filled with underperformance from many of the teams most key players it is important this year more than ever that the team has a bounceback year.
With the AFC North shaping up to be one of the toughest divisions in the league. The Baltimore Ravens drafted well, have the reigning MVP of the league, and won the AFC North last season. The Pittsburgh Steelers have one of the best defenses in the entire NFL and had a very respectable record even with their franchise quarterback Ben Roethlisberger being sidelined with an injury for most of the season.
Finally, the Cincinnati Bengals despite coming off of having the worst record in the NFL, drafted Joe Burrow with their first overall pick, has A.J. Green returning from injury, as well with Joe Mixon emerging as one of the higher quality running backs in the league. With this much competition being just in the AFC North, all of the Browns will have to be on their A-game every game for the team to win the division or take a wildcard spot.
As a result of this, some of Cleveland’s star players must have bounce-back seasons for the team to live up to the hype that they receiver last season as well as complete the team’s goal of turning the franchise around. With the Browns hiring Kevin Stefanski in the offseason and him incorporating a new offense that should yield much more success than last season, there are some key Browns players who should and will have to have a bounce-back season in 2020-2021.
