  Browns | David Njoku expected to stay    Fri Apr 3, 10:01 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is expected to remain with the team despite the signing of TE Austin Hooper, according to ESPN's Jake Trotter.

Footballguys view: Hooper is making the big money and should be the starter for the Browns. Njoku has a ton of talent and upside as a player, but he's never put it all together and played up to his full potential in the NFL. He may need a fresh start with another team to do just that.

  Browns | Tackling Nick Chubb no easy task    Tue Mar 31, 11:34 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb was credited with 32 broken tackles in 2019 - tied with Green Bay Packers RB Aaron Jones for the most in the league.

Footballguys view: Chubb is one of the best running backs in the league. His power and determination as a runner are second to none. With a better offense around him, Chubb could be better than ever in 2020.

  Browns | Deflections hurt Baker Mayfield in 2019    Sun Mar 29, 06:46 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield had a league-high 20 passes batted down at or behind the line of scrimmage in 2019.

Footballguys view: Mayfield is short and that means his passes have a better chance of getting batted. He needs to lower that number in 2020 and the team needs to help him by designing plays that give him more wide open passing lanes.

Updating a previous story, the Cleveland Browns will acquire FB Andy Janovich from the Denver Broncos in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft when the new league year opens Wednesday, March 18, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Janovich is a hard-nosed fullback who will help blast open holes for Nick Chubb. He does little as a runner or receiver out of the backfield.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt tendered    Mon Mar 16, 11:03 AM

Cleveland Browns restricted free-agent RB Kareem Hunt received a second-round tender Monday, March 16.

Footballguys view: This gives Hunt a salary of around $2.9 million in 2020, and it also protects the Browns if they don't match an offer from another team. If Hunt were to be signed away, the Browns would receive a second-round pick in return. Hunt will work as a backup to Nick Chubb once again this season should he stay with the Browns.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins expected to hit market    Sun Mar 1, 03:20 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins is expected to test the free-agent market this offseason, but the Browns are open to re-signing him depending on the price, according to a source. The Browns met with Higgins' agent at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Footballguys view: Higgins never really got a great chance with the Browns over the last four years. Perhaps a fresh start will jump-start his career and that natural receiving talent he showed coming out of Colorado State. Higgins could be a steal for a team who picks him up...likely for a cheap price.

  Browns | Case Keenum a target for Cleveland?    Wed Feb 26, 06:03 PM

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Case Keenum is under consideration by the Cleveland Browns, a league source said Wednesday, Feb. 26.

Footballguys view: The Browns are considering Keenum to give them veteran experience and plenty of starting experience behind Baker Mayfield. Other reports indicate the Browns might have interest in Chase Daniel too. Both Keenum and Daniel are shorter quarterbacks like Mayfield, and both have worked in spread concepts at both the college and pro level.

  Browns | Chase Daniel may be option for Browns    Wed Feb 26, 03:11 PM

Chicago Bears impending free-agent QB Chase Daniel is expected to be a target for the Cleveland Browns during free agency.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield shedding weight    Wed Feb 26, 09:48 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield is planning to be slimmer and faster next year after he bulked up before the 2019 season.

  Browns | David Njoku sticking with Cleveland?    Tue Feb 25, 06:25 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is likely to have his fifth-year option picked up, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Footballguys view: This report is contrary to others out there about the young tight end. Njoku has failed to stay healthy and play up to the potential he showed in college. The Browns may try to give him one more try as a weapon for QB Baker Mayfield.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt to receive tender    Tue Feb 25, 03:54 PM

Impending free-agent RB Kareem Hunt will be tendered, according to Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry Tuesday, Feb. 25.

Footballguys view: Berry didn't say which level of tender Hunt would receive. That likely means that Hunt isn't going anywhere in 2020. The Browns have Nick Chubb as their leading running back, and Hunt can serve as a valuable backup and change-of-pace back.

  Browns | Odell Beckham should be healthy soon    Thu Feb 20, 05:09 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (core) should be completely recovered from his core muscle surgery in about a month, according to a source.

Footballguys view: That puts him on track to be ready for offseason workouts. That being said, the Browns are likely to take it easy on the veteran superstar in OTAs and minicamp. We'll see if a fully healthy Beckham, and hopefully an improved Baker Mayfield, can boost the Browns passing attack in 2020.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield to tweak footwork    Wed Feb 19, 11:32 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will work on his footwork with offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt. The veteran coach said he's going to have Mayfield put his left foot up (last year, had his right foot up) in the shotgun. Van Pelt thinks that will help Mayfield be more fluid in three-step drop out of the gun.

Footballguys view: Browns fans are wondering what is wrong with Mayfield, and perhaps this change in footwork will help him play better in 2020. In two seasons, Mayfield has been a low-end QB2 for Fantasy GMs. That's about where he should rank heading into the new season.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt likely to stay with Cleveland    Tue Feb 18, 08:36 PM

Impending free-agent RB Kareem Hunt 'expects to be in the (Cleveland) Browns' plans next year,' according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Footballguys view: Hunt is perhaps going to get a first-round tender as a restricted free agent. That would pay him around $4.6 million for the 2020 season. Hunt is capable of being a featured back and could be quite successful with such a role again. However, with the Browns he's going to be the backup to Nick Chubb and work mostly on third downs.
