After our timely “Stay or Go” article earlier today on WR KhaDarel Hodge, the Browns’ wide receiver officially signed his restricted free agent tender Wednesday afternoon. His cap hit will be $2.133 million in 2021, with no guaranteed money.
The news of Hodge signing was reported earlier in the day by The OBR, and confirmed with this post from Hodge on Instagram:
Although Hodge was a valuable contributor at wide receiver last year, he will still have to fight his tail off to earn a roster spot this year. The Browns already have Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, and Donovan Peoples-Jones at the position from last year — but rookie Anthony Schwartz has been added to the mix in 2021.
