The Daily Dawg Tags bring you all the Cleveland Browns news you need to know, including the announcement of their preseason broadcast team
For the second season in a row, Joe Thomas will be calling the preseason games for the Cleveland Browns. The long-time left tackle was announced as the main analyst once again and will be joined by Chris Rose.
There will also be another big name in the mix as NFL reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala will be the sideline reporter. Kinkhabwala is easily one of the most well-respected reporters in the business and will be a welcome sight during Browns preseason games.
The story on this crew, and more, can be found in today’s Daily Dawg Tags.
Cleveland Browns News
"“Cleveland native Chris Rose will join Thomas in the booth for the first time doing play-by-play. Veteran NFL reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala will provide sideline updates.”"
Thomas has been arguably the most popular player for the Browns since their return to the league in 1999. His no-nonsense approach to the game won him over during his career but his fun-loving attitude in the booth has made him a star off the field.
"“I think paid leave should be back on the table,” Pro Football Talk and NBC Sports’ Mike Florio told 3News’ Jim Donovan on Thursday. “I’ve asked the league twice this week whether Roger Goodell’s comments from late-March about paid leave not being an option still stand — both times, they said no comment. You can take that however you want. But how hard would it be to say his comments still stand?”"
Mike Florio is a former attorney, so it’s often wise to listen to him when it comes to legal advice. Having said that, he seems to have a strong opinion on this case which might sway him here. Florio has attacked the Browns for holding onto Baker Mayfield and hasn’t held back on them for going after Deshaun Watson.
In the end, none of us know what the NFL is going to do. And none of us will know until they decide to make their decision public.
At first glance, it didn’t make a lot of sense for the Browns to re-do D’Ernest Johnson’s tender since his actual dollars stayed the same. However, Elliot Kennel peels the curtain back and says the new deal not only helps Johnson but could help Cleveland trade him — should they get an offer they like.
OTAs are still in the voluntary phase, with mandatory minicamps just around the corner. That makes this a perfect time to look at who has been standing out so far in the early portion of practices.
