Daily Dawg Tags: Richard Sherman probably not in Cleveland Browns plans

The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news, including one story suggesting the Browns will pass on cornerback Richard Sherman

One of the more famous Cleveland Browns fans out there tried to lure Richard Sherman to the roster this offseason. Portland Trailblazers star C.J. McCollum tweeted at Sherman to try and convince him to join the “squad.”

While Sherman didn’t come out and say he was down for that, he didn’t shy away either. He simply said he heard McCollum and would see how everything plays out.

There’s definitely a connection there since Sherman did work under Joe Woods in San Francisco. The current Cleveland defensive coordinator was a defensive backs coach with the 49ers and as far as we all know, the relationship between the two was good.

However, the Browns apparently aren’t interested in reuniting the duo. Recent reports suggest they’re not going to go after the veteran, and our thought it this is most likely due to his age and the fact that he did struggle with injuries this past season.

Browns will reportedly pass on Richard Sherman — Thomas Moore, Dawgs by Nature

“While Cleveland needs help in the secondary, the idea of signing a cornerback who is about to turn 33 does not appear to be in the cards.”

Moore cites an article from Mary Kay Cabot, which is behind a paywall, and says general manager Andrew Berry will likely go younger at the position. It’s too early to completely shut the door on this idea, the Browns probably will prefer to get younger opposite Denzel Ward.

PFF projects the Browns to sign free agent WR Marvin Jones — Jeff Risdon, Browns Wire

“Jones, who will be 31 in March, caught 76 passes for 978 yards and nine TDs in 2020. He has exactly nine TD receptions in three of the last four seasons in Detroit, and Jones led the NFL in yards per reception in 2017 at 18.0.”

Marvin Jones is one of the more underrated receivers in the NFL. He can do just about everything including burning teams deep. His age isn’t ideal but he could be good for a couple of seasons, and the prediction suggests three years will be the number for a deal.
