These four players for the Cleveland Browns may be good at their jobs on Sunday, but they could likely perform in an event in the Olympics as well.

I don’t know about you, but my second thing to watch on television after the Cleveland Browns is the Olympics. Sports that I would never care about or pay the least bit of attention to seem to just pull me into the TV.

As Browns fans await a highly anticipated season, the Tokyo Olympics provide us two weeks of entertainment that will bring us that much closer to the regular season beginning.

These Olympic athletes are very similar to NFL players. Their level of skill at one thing is absolutely off the chart.  Even the off-the-wall sports like table tennis and badminton that you would never catch me watching other than the Olympics require a talent that not many have.

What’s even more frustrating?

Some of these NFL players are so athletic, if they set their mind to it, they could probably perform at the Olympics in some type of competition. Their level of competitiveness, focus, and raw athleticism allows them to do almost anything.

Below are four Cleveland Browns players that could compete in the Olympics if they wanted.

No. 4 – Anthony Schwartz

This is an easy one as rookie, Anthony Schwartz, is already known to have “Olympic” type speed.  Not sure if he would be ready for a medal, but he certainly could compete.

Remember, DK Metcalf took a shot at the 100-meter tryouts for the 2021 Olympics and quickly found out that football speed and track speed can be completely different. He is also carrying around a few extra pounds that some of these guys aren’t.

Schwartz may not be the 100-meter guy, but certainly the 200 or 400-meter dash.
