Browns' Week 1 depth chart shows where the 53-man roster stands

New, comments

The depth chart is always labeled as unofficial, though.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at New York Giants Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Browns released their first depth chart of the regular season on Tuesday, leading up to their Week 1 match-up against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The team refers to it as an "unofficial" depth chart, so nothing should be taken as being locked in. Head coach Hue Jackson will speak with the media during the week to perhaps clarify a few things. Here are the things of note from the depth chart:

  • The left side of the offensive line remains the same, with Joel Bitonio at left tackle and Austin Corbett at left guard. Hopefully, Jackson keeps it that way during the week.
  • Antonio Callaway is listed ahead of Josh Gordon, as promised. But in terms of gameday reps, I could see all three of the team’s top receivers sharing relatively equal reps. They are the biggest weapons, so they’ll be out there.
  • Rather than having a fullback spot, the team has a second tight end spot for the blockers — Darren Fells and Orson Charles.
  • On defense, Briean Boddy-Calhoun is listed at free safety (backup) instead of cornerback. Two players are “injured” right now — James Burgess and E.J. Gaines. Burgess will still be where he is listed, but Gaines would likely pass Rice up.
  • I’m still not convinced that Jabrill Peppers will be the kick and punt returner...we shall see.
