The Cleveland Browns will play against the New York Giants on Sunday and these three players are demanding we pay them attention
After practicing with the Giants this week at CrossCountry Mortgage Campus in Berea, the Cleveland Browns will be facing off against the G-Men from New York on Sunday.
It will be nice to see the team in action, but it will probably feel even better for the Browns to say goodbye to the Giants. As is often the case with these joint practices, the two teams saw a fight happen as Troy Hill and Sterling Shephard got into it at the end of Friday’s practice.
Sure, it’s nice to hit another team in these practices but it seems as though the fights have become incredibly commonplace.
Moving beyond that, we look ahead to this weekend’s game and identify three players who are commanding attention.
3. Cleveland Browns LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah
With one linebacker after another being hurt, the charade of Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah being third-string had to come to an early end. The rookie linebacker was on the field with the first-team defense after Jacob Phillips was hurt — and subsequently lost for the year — and he didn’t disappoint.
Even head coach Kevin Stefanski said as much, saying JOK looked comfortable with the first team and had no problem keeping up with the playing speed.
The Browns likely wanted to ease Owusu-Koramoah into action this season but after losing Phillips, he’s likely going to be a starter at WILL with Anthony Walker at the MIKE and, when they do go three linebackers, Sione Takitaki at SAM.
In the end, it could be a great thing to get JOK on the field, but it would have been better to have him out there with Phillips. Still, he’s been turning heads and making it impossible not to notice him.
