Cleveland Browns:

NFL:

  • Saints pick Jameis Winston to succeed Drew Brees as starting quarterback (The Times-Picayune) - Fifteen years ago, the New Orleans Saints ushered in an era of unprecedented success and stability for the franchise when they signed quarterback Drew Brees to a free-agent contract. Friday, the Saints tabbed Jameis Winston as Brees’ successor, naming Winston the starting quarterback for their Week 1 game Sept. 12 against the Green Bay Packers.
  • Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray are running out of time to produce fireworks (The Ringer) - The vaunted Air Raid offense turned into the Horizontal Raid last season, and now the supposedly electric duo in Arizona faces a make-or-break season.
  • Six NFL teams headed for ugly 2021 season (CBS Sports) - August has not been particularly kind to some teams, with bad luck, mounting injuries, self-inflicted errors, and bad juju all swirling around. For teams already very much on the margins, and facing a talent imbalance and in many cases with very inexperienced hands overseeing the coaching staff and/or the roster, suffering even one critical injury to a key starter can undermine any gains. Unfortunately for these half dozen teams, they already check far too many of the above boxes, with the potential for overwhelmed coaches and/or facing immediate crisis at key roster spots, with not much going their way heading into the final exhibition contests.
