The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at whether or not Takk McKinley and Curtis Weaver are enough ay EDGE opposite Myles Garrett
There’s still a chance the Cleveland Browns sign Jadeveon Clowney as they continue to try and get him in the building.
With that being said, there’s still a chance he won’t sign with the team. That’s why some are wondering about a plan B at defensive end. Sure, there’s the draft but what if a starting-caliber player isn’t available?
That’s what one reader was worried about as they asked Mary Kay Cabot if the Browns would be okay with Takkarist McKinley and Curtis Weaver as the primary options across from Myles Garrett.
Her answer, and more, can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

“I think it would be risky to count on McKinley and Weaver to hold down the fort in place of Olivier Vernon. McKinley, coming off a serious groin injury that cost him most of last season, is trying to get his career back on track after notching only seven sacks in his last 30 games.”
McKinley isn’t alone in coming off an injury as Weaver missed his entire rookie season as well — he was even added to the IR when the Dolphins waived him with an injury designation. Both players have plenty to like about their game, but there’s no way the Browns feel like they’re 100 percent set — as Mary Kay said. So that’s why the Clowney pursuit continues.
“If someone did come and make an offer to the Browns for Odell, I still think that they would listen to it. I don’t think the Browns are 100 percent locked in to having to have OBJ on the team this year”
The above quote is from Mary Kay Cabot and while some will dismiss her, she is really plugged into the team. Of course, listening and acting are two very different things. Most GMs will listen to just about any trade offer. That doesn’t mean they’re willing to deal.
Late Sunday night, word emerged that the Browns were looking to bring Clowney in on another visit. This could be a positive sign that he may be closer to signing this season than he was in 2020.
The NFL may actually relax on a rule and if they do, some players could have some much better-looking numbers. Here are four players on the Browns who should take advantage of the rule change if it happens.
