NFL: Cleveland Browns-OTA Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Cleveland Browns:

  • Baker Mayfield: Beware of Nick Chubb ( - Those who doubt the Browns’ No. 1 back can become a star on the order of a certain former Steeler might take note that Nick Chubb’s rookie year was better than Le’Veon Bell’s.
  • Browns may not use more than two linebackers very often (Browns Wire) - If you are expecting new Browns defensive coordinator Steve Wilks to deploy three, or perhaps even four, linebackers with Cleveland’s defense, you will be disappointed. Wilks used more than two LBs less than any other coach during his 2018 one-year stint as the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals.
  • Jhavonte Dean aims to make most of latest uphill battle ( - On a chilly, overcast day in Berea, Jhavonte Dean was again living life on the edge. Lined up at the familiar position of cornerback, Dean dropped back in coverage and was faced with a choice: break up a pass or go for the interception. He chose the riskier approach and ended up in the end zone, bringing the football along for the ride. The pick-six was one of two for Dean on his first day as a tryout player at Browns rookie minicamp in early May. Now, he’s a member of the 90-man roster, the latest development on his improbable path from Homestead, Florida, to the NFL.
