Health of Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah not a concern for Andrew Berry
Cleveland sports radio station 92.3 The Fan earlier on Tuesday and stated the Browns have no concern regarding Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah’s health.
Andrew Berry joined local Cleveland sports radio station 92.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning.
He discussed many things, one of which is a question as to why a certain player fell to them in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
And when asked about this, Berry clearly stated the Cleveland Browns have no concern regarding Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah‘s health.
He also stated that the media would need to speak to Adam Schefter regarding the news he dropped yesterday regarding a heart condition that was at least part of the reason for him dropping.
Clearly, the Browns had no issue because they took the young linebacker from Notre Dame with the 52nd pick in the second round. Not only did they take him, but they also moved up via trade to make sure they got him. As he said above, the Browns feel they got a great young player they expect to have around for a long time.
Berry on Malik McDowell
Berry spent most of the conversation talking about their due diligence before even considering signing Malik McDowell. He pointed out that they spent a lot of time with people that know him the most after a workout back in March.
Berry stated he is happy with the shape he is in and that, more importantly, they feel he has really turned his life around within the past year. But, in the end, there is always a risk with any signing, especially one with McDowell’s history. However, Berry and the rest of the staff feel they have done enough to mitigate that risk as much as possible.
More draft stuff
Berry was asked if Tommy Togiai separated himself during Ohio State’s pro day. Berry’s response might surprise some as he stated that pro days do not have much of an impact on where the Browns might take a player.
He stated that pro days could separate similar talents, but that was the extent of how they matter. The Browns see a pro day as a way to fill out measurables and other such stuff. He stated that Togiai separated himself on tape, which was why they chose to take him.
Berry reiterated that the Browns are still in contact with his representatives, and if the situation is right, they will move forward. While having Richardson back would be great after two solid seasons in Cleveland, the Browns have a clear number, and we will all have to wait and see.
While the work is never done, Berry seems to be happy with where the Browns are at as a whole heading into the 2021 season. Based on where this roster is, he has every right to be.
