Cleveland Browns:

  • Steelers-Browns example of hope vs. hype (Trib Live) - With NFL training camps fast approaching, the AFC North’s main rivalry is abundantly clear. It’s hope vs. hype. The Steelers hope rookie inside linebacker Devin Bush fills the hole left by Ryan Shazier when he got hurt 20 months ago. The Steelers hope losing Antonio Brown’s noise helps more than losing Brown’s talent hurts. The Cleveland Browns, meantime, are bolstered by hype worthy of the Backstreet Boys in the ’90s. It is gratuitous. It is loud. It is nonstop, and it is annoying.
  • Where do Browns defensive backs rank in the AFC North? ( - This division has always been built on strong defenses and that has yet to change. Through two sets of rankings, the Steelers remain the standard but things could change in the back half. While there were some clear weaknesses in the box for some in the AFC North, the secondaries are a strength for most in the division and that makes the rankings tight.
  • Browns training camp preview: Analyzing the safeties ( - What we know: The Browns had to part with an every-game starter on the rise when they sent Jabrill Peppers to New York in the well-documented Odell Beckham Jr. trade. That’s the price of doing business when you acquire one of the best wide receivers in the game.
