The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know

One of the least vocal members of the Cleveland Browns was taking some time to speak with several members of the media on Thursday. There were discussions about his partnership with Sleep Number, his take on MJ vs. LeBron, and plenty more.

He was also the subject of some interesting statistical news as it was made known that he led the NFL in yards over expectation this past season. This NextGen stat measures how many yards a player was supposed to get based on their blocking ahead of them and the players on the defense in position to tackle them.

Chubb, who is as tough to tackle as they come, had 1.75 yards over the expectation for every carry he had this season. As impressive as this news is, it’s not surprising to Browns fans who watched him shed one tackler after another in 2020.

That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

Cleveland Browns News

Nick Chubb led all RBs in yards over expectation per carry — Jeff Risdon, Browns Wire

"“Chubb topped the list of most RYOE per attempt. He gained 1.75 yards more than expected per carry. Interestingly, Chubb also spent more time behind the line of scrimmage per carry than any other running back, at 3.09 seconds on average.”"

This is definitely a stat that personifies the player Nick Chubb is. He’s impossible to bring down with the first hit which surely led to the extra yardage. That’s the kind of player any team would want leading their ground attack.

Nick Chubb Talks Browns’ Baker Mayfield, LeBron vs. MJ, More in B/R AMA — Adam Wells, Bleacher Report

"“I grew up watching LeBron, I’ve seen the Jordan doc which was amazing. For my generation, you gotta go LeBron.”"

Chubb made the rounds on Thursday and surely was asked a lot of questions that were not football related. This one could be controversial, especially to us 90s kids who grew up watching MJ. Another interesting topic in this one was when Chubb was asked if he could beat Saquon Barkley in a squat challenge, and the Cleveland running back said he could take the man known as ‘Saquads’.

Browns: No. 1 WR is Cleveland’s biggest offensive need this offseason — Nick Dudukovich, Factory of Sadness

"“The expectation of the offseason is that the Browns will bolster a defense littered with holes on the defensive line, linebacker and to some degree corner.The Browns certainly need to address these spots, but the offense also has a glaring need: No. 1 wide receiver.This need stretches beyond 2021–and no, I haven’t forgotten about Odell Beckham Jr.”"

It’s not a crazy take because the Browns were struggling to get deep against the Chiefs in the divisional round. The problem is, they have so much money tied up in their current receivers that it won’t be an easy move to make.

Which Browns player is most likely to break out in 2021? — Scott Patsko,

"“Nominees: Delpit (Patsko, Labbe); Billings (Lesmerises); Peoples-Jones (Cabot); Beckham (Williams).The vote: As the only player with multiple votes, Delpit was named most likely to break out in 2021.”"

It was sad to hear the news when Grant Delpit went down with a torn Achilles because the expectations for him were pretty high. Hopefully he can return to health and make an impact in 2021 and beyond.
