The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including a look at one player who could be a surprise cut in 2022
Every year, in the NFL there are several players who are released by their respective teams despite having something left in the tank. For the Cleveland Browns, there’s one such player who could fit that bill in 2022.
Running back Kareem Hunt is a player set to count for $6.25 million this season but could be released with absolutely no dead money. And with him missing much of the season due to injury and the fact that they can get solid production for less money if they decided to retain D’Ernest Johnson, this is actually more of a possibility than many would want to believe.
A story looking at Hunt and his future in the Dawg Pound kicks things off in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“The Browns clearly have a talented group of running backs, but for one of them, their time may come to an end in Cleveland. It may be hard to believe, but the front office could choose to let go of Kareem Hunt.”"
Hunt has become a fan-favorite and those who support the brown and orange would hate to see such a move. However, Hunt is making a good bit of money for a running back and this analytics-based front office could decide to rill with Nick Chubb and D’Ernest Johnson — especially since there would be no dead money if they were to move on from Hunt.
"“Myles Garrett was going to have a new position coach this season, but now, he’ll still have Chris Kiffin, for whom the defensive linemen love playing.”"
It looked as though Chris Kiffin was joining his brother, Lane Kiffin, at Ole Miss but he ended up having a change of heart as he’s returning to the Browns to coach the defensive line. Given their success in 2021, this is a great move for the organization.
"“The Cleveland Browns are being championed by an organization of league workers and sports professionals—awarded for their commitment to workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion by the Fritz Pollard Alliance in an inaugural recognition.”"
Cleveland has always been an organization recognized for its diversity and this is a well-deserved award for them.
There are rumors that Baker Mayfield could be playing elsewhere in 2022. If that ends up coming to fruition, Greg Newland has three landing spots for the former No. 1 overall pick.
Cleveland needs to add a lot of talent this offseason to keep up with the stacked AFC, but there are some players who simply won’t be coming to Berea. Here are three such big-name targets.
