The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at whether or not they will sign Greg Newsome before camp
Training camp is just over a week away as the Cleveland Browns will be meeting up in Berea beginning on July 27. Fans are eagerly awaiting the start of the season and once teams report to camp, it begins to feel as though football is finally back.
For the Browns, there are some lofty expectations this year after a successful offseason which included several big signings and some great draft picks. However, one of those picks has yet to sign.
Greg Newsome, the No. 26 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, is still without a contract. Today’s Daily Dawg Tags kicks off with an article addressing that and answering whether or not we should be concerned.

"“I do think Newsome, the No. 26 pick, will be signed by the start of camp July 28. Part of the holdup is the fact that he switched agents last month, from CAA to Drew Rosenhaus. With rookie contracts slotted, overall money won’t be an issue, but payment of the signing bonus and offset language can sometimes be sticking points.”"
As Mary Kay said, the money isn’t going to be an issue but still, first-round picks usually take the longest to sign and the change in representation is also surely an issue here. Still, there’s time to get the deal done and there doesn’t seem to be any concern on either side about making it work.
"“Here is how the Browns offensive line fared last season in PBWR:Green Bay Packers, 74%Cleveland Browns, 71%Arizona Cardinals, 67%”"
The Browns offensive line is nasty and talented. And all five starters are returning for the 2021 season which means they can also wind up being incredibly consistent.
"“Commissioner Roger Goodell eventually took Quinn and his family out of the green room and away from the cameras.”"
To this day, the fall in the draft of Brady Quinn is remembered by many. A possible No. 1 overall pick, he fell to Cleveland at 22 and was ready to prove teams wrong. Unfortunately, that’s not how things went as Quinn wound up being just another bust that Cleveland tried under center.
Greg Newland looks at four players on the Browns who have yet to make the All-Pro team, but might do so this coming season.
DPD’s Dylan Coscia is a fan of the Browns move to add Troy Hill and believes it might be vastly underrated due to all the other signings they made. Even with it not receiving a ton of attention, Hill should be a huge part of this defense finally improving in 2021.
