The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know including a look at one writer who talks about ‘gushing’ over Deshaun Watson
In case you didn’t hear, the Cleveland Browns have a new quarterback this season after trading for Deshaun Watson.
Of course, we all know how talented Watson is — but there are serious off-field concerns. Having said that, some are wondering if it’s time to start gushing over the talent he brings to the field.
That story and more can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.

"“Deshaun, in his last year [playing], led the league in passing,’’ said Berry. “He might’ve led the league in completion percentage as well. He could win in the pocket. He could win out of the pocket. He can throw off platforms and was a very good decision maker.”"
Pluto has several quotes from Andrew Berry who has been explaining the football reasons for bringing in Deshaun Watson. And those all make sense. The young man is a stud when he’s on the field and could easily wind up being the best quarterback Cleveland has had since they returned to the league in 1999.
"“The Browns have had talks with the Houston Texans regarding receiver Brandin Cooks at times this offseason, a league source tells TheOBR.The extent of those talks is unknown, but the Browns have called on the former first-round draft pick as they continue to explore possible options.”"
Brandin Cooks has experience with Deshaun Watson as he had 81 receptions for 1,150 yards and six touchdowns in 2020 when Watson put up those insane numbers Andrew Berry was throwing out in the earlier mentioned article. We don’t know how serious these talks are but it would be quite the addition.
"“The Cleveland Browns are “pushing” to re-sign free-agent defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.”"
Cleveland had great production from Jadeveon Clowney in 2021 and would love to have him back for another year, or more. He’s an excellent fit across from Myles Garrett but they would also love to have an answer soon so they know how to proceed going forward.
Sam Penix looks ahead to the upcoming draft and makes his selections for the Browns in this seven-round mock draft.
After a strong rookie campaign, Jedrick Wills struggled at times in 2021. Michael Welsh takes some time to look at what led to the struggles while also saying what has to happen in 2022 for the big man to make sure he holds his spot as the left tackle in Cleveland for years to come.
