Cleveland Browns:

  • Extensions, OBJ and defense: Burning questions facing the Browns’ offseason (ESPN) - Cleveland has never been to a Super Bowl. But the Browns now boast a talented young core that just might be capable of putting Cleveland over the top. In the meantime, the Browns have more roster building ahead. Here are the burning questions to be addressed this offseason.
  • Browns rookies responded when their numbers have been called ( - The Browns’ 2020 NFL draft class likely will be making an impact with the franchise for years to come.vThat’s not a bold statement after seeing what kind of production the group had in its first NFL season. The round number and pick selection didn’t matter for this class — players across the draft spectrum found ways to contribute, and it’s an understatement to say they didn’t fulfill expectations in 2020.
  • Joe Woods must grow in the land of defensive coordinators with worlds of experience (Beacon Journal) - One reason the Cleveland Browns slid to 6-10 in 2019 was a defense that never found itself under a new coordinator, Steve Wilks. The 2020 Browns made a quantum leap to 12-6, but the defense took a statistical step backward under Wilks’ replacement, Joe Woods.
  • The Browns Have Ample Cap Space To Work With (Forbes) - The Cleveland Browns have some clear needs to address this offseason, most notably on defense. Some of the needs will ideally be filled internally via players like corner Greedy Williams and safety Grant Delpit — neither of whom played this year — back. The Browns also have their own draft picks, giving them a cost-effective way to build the roster if they can be successful in the draft. Cleveland, though, will also have money to spend in free agency.
