Former Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer is receiving strong interest from the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Meyer is one of the many candidates the Browns have to be considering. He could be near the top of that list but we're not expecting a decision anytime soon.

  Browns | Jarvis Landry facing potential lengthy recovery    Mon Dec 30, 12:04 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry (hip) told reporters Monday, Dec. 30, that a timetable for his return from hip surgery would be six to eight months, making surgery a 'last resort.'

Footballguys view: Landry was able to play banged up for most of the 2019 season. Surgery is a last resort, and the veteran will have to determine what's best for him in the near future. Any sort of surgery in January would have him out of action until training camp at the earliest.

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (groin, illness) sat out practice Friday, Dec. 27, with an illness and is listed as questionable for the team's Week 17 game at the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Beckham could sit this week if he's anything less than 100% because of this illness. It has been a disappointing year for him and the whole Browns offense outside of Nick Chubb. It is still uncertain if Beckham will be a Brown come Week 1 of the 2020 season.
