The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including new wide receiver Amari Cooper choosing a new number
Too much news surrounding the Cleveland Browns this past week and a half has been all about the quarterback. First, it was the pursuit of Deshaun Watson, then it was the trade request from Baker Mayfield.
It’s understandable because it’s important, but it’s also overshadowing a huge move Cleveland made as they added wide receiver Amari Cooper before all the Watson news began. And with all the talk going elsewhere, not enough attention was paid to the Cooper deal becoming official.
Here, we remedy that as we take some time to look at the newest member of the Cleveland receiving corps, who also has a new number for the third time in his career.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags (and yes, there is still some quarterback talk).

"“Amari Cooper wore 89 with the Raiders and 19 with the Cowboys, but his time with the Browns will at least start off with a third different number – 2.”"
The NFL recently changed rules to allow wide receivers to wear single-digit numbers and Cooper is taking advantage by wearing No. 2. And if we’re being honest, it looks pretty sick.
"“With a dwindling free agent market, there’s a real possibility that they have to take a quarterback in the draft. In this 2022 NFL Mock Draft, that QB is Matt Corral, giving the Browns a swashbuckling leader who displays a strong arm and the ability to extend plays dangerously with his legs.”"
Matt Corral is an interesting one in that he seemed to go from the top quarterback to a forgotten man. He has a lot of upside but at this point, it seems like a stretch to see him go 13th overall — but stranger things have happened.
Not long after the Browns found out they weren’t getting Deshaun Watson, Baker Mayfield requested a trade. However, the front office is apparently not willing to grant that request just yet. This ride still isn’t over.
Cleveland might not be willing to trade Baker Mayfield just yet, but if they did, Greg Newland has three places he could see the former No. 1 pick land.
