Cleveland Browns OTA

Cleveland Browns:

  • Can Drew Stanton win games for the Browns? ( - Drew Stanton, who rarely dressed in 2018, is in line to serve as the Browns backup quarterback. Stanton’s presence on the roster has long been about more than what he can do on the field. He’s here to serve as a mentor for Baker Mayfield. It’s why the Browns, who had a capable backup in Tyrod Taylor, kept the now 35-year-old on the roster as a third quarterback. The question here, however, isn’t about roster construction. It’s about Stanton and whether he can win games if necessary.
  • Who will start at right guard for the Browns? ( - Cleveland had two of the NFL’s most effective guards in 2018 in Joel Bitonio and Kevin Zeitler, but sent the latter to New York in the trade that landed the team Odell Beckham Jr. and Olivier Vernon.
