  Browns | Kareem Hunt facing long suspension?    Tue Feb 12, 06:18 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt could be suspended up to 10 or 12 games as a result of the domestiv violence incident he was involved in last year, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: With video evidence of Hunt's domestic violence incident, the chances of him getting a large suspension are great. The Browns signed him to a one-year deal earlier this week and they'll use Nick Chubb as their lead back while Hunt is serving his suspension.

  Browns | Duke Johnson not done in Cleveland    Mon Feb 11, 06:06 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Duke Johnson is not expendable 'yet,' according to general manager John Dorsey.

Footballguys view: The Browns added Kareem Hunt and crowded the backfield with Nick Chubb. That means Johnson is the odd man out. The team has Johnson under contract through the 2021 season. Hunt is likely to face league discipline, so the Browns may have to wait for his debut. They're unlikely to move Johnson before that time.

  Browns | Cleveland lands Kareem Hunt on one-year deal    Mon Feb 11, 02:00 PM

Free-agent RB Kareem Hunt signed a one-year contract that is for more than the league minimum and could be worth more than $1 million with the Cleveland Browns on Monday, Feb. 11.

Footballguys view: Hunt and Browns GM John Dorsey go back (Dorsey was part of the Chiefs when Hunt was drafted in 2017) and that's why the Browns felt they could take a chance on the young runner. There will be league discipline handed down for Hunt in the future, but for now he remains on the commissioner's exempt list. Hunt's addition means Nick Chubb's fantasy stock takes a hit.

  Browns | Cleveland a potential landing spot for Tyrell Williams    Fri Feb 8, 02:38 AM

The Cleveland Browns could be interested in Los Angeles Chargers WR Tyrell Williams in free agency, in the opinion of Forbes' Jim Ingraham.

Footballguys view: The Chargers don't think it's realistic to keep Williams on the roster. He is in line to get paid, and they've got Mike Williams coming off a breakout season. Tyrell Williams has recorded over 40 catches each of the last two seasons. With a new team, he could hit the numbers he had in 2016 (69 catches, 1,059 yards, 7 touchdowns).

  Browns | Second-place finish motivating Baker Mayfield    Thu Feb 7, 12:20 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said he will use his narrow, second-place finish in the NF Offensive Rookie of the Year voting as motivation this offseason. Mayfield finished five votes behind winner Saquon Barkley. 'Yeah, I'll use it as motivation,'' Mayfield said Wednesday, Feb. 6, via Cleveland.com. 'But the more important thing is winning football games. Yeah, it's more frustrating than anything because Saquon, that's my guy and he'll hold it over my head forever. But you know what, I'll use that as motivation and I'll be better in the long run.'

Footballguys view: Mayfield has constantly been doubted throughout his football career. He was the no.1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft and showed signs of a franchise quarterback. Mayfield plays with a chip on his shoulder and this 'slight' will only add to that chip.

  Browns | Dontrell Hilliard could have role    Fri Feb 1, 09:21 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Dontrell Hilliard could be a part of head coach Freddie Kitchens' three-back sets next season, according to Andrew Gribble of ClevelandBrowns.com.

Footballguys view: Hilliard has some receiving skills and should make the team again but this is an offense that can't find enough snaps for Duke Johnson. We should still keep Hilliard on our deep dynasty radar.

  Browns | Derrick Willies on the mend    Fri Feb 1, 09:17 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Derrick Willies (shoulder) is expected to be ready for the start of OTAs.

Footballguys view: Willies will have a hard road to make the roster if the team brings back Rashard Higgins and Breshad Perriman. He did end up on the 53 as an undrafted free agent and made a big play in an overtime win over Baltimore. He might make another team if he can't make the Browns roster.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins wants to return    Fri Feb 1, 06:35 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins said he wants to re-sign with the Browns this offseason and hopes to agree to a long-term deal before the start of free agency.

Footballguys view: Breshad Perriman also could return before free agency. The Browns would probably get a discount if they sign before free agency. The good vibes created around Freddie Kitchens and Baker Mayfield are making players want to stay. Higgins won't have stand alone fantasy value but could make it harder for other Browns targets to hit their ceilings.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield happy with hire    Thu Jan 31, 09:39 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield said he believes in head coach Freddie Kitchens and is excited to have offensive continuity. 'We had something special and I want to build on it,' Mayfield said.

Footballguys view: Good for the Browns for giving this duo a chance to continue what they started last year. Mayfield should at worst be a streamer's delight next season and he's being selected as a low QB1/high QB2 in early drafts.

  Browns | Denzel Ward could be limited in Pro Bowl    Sat Jan 26, 10:15 AM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns CB Denzel Ward (concussion) will see some playing time in the Pro Bowl Sunday, Jan. 27, but it could be limited due to a pair of late-season concussions. He was a participant in the skills competition Thursday, Jan. 24, and has also been taking part in practice throughout the week.

  Browns | Denzel Ward to play in Pro Bowl    Fri Jan 25, 01:49 PM

Cleveland Browns CB Denzel Ward (concussion) has been cleared after a week of practice to play in the Pro Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 27.

Footballguys view: Ward ended up being an outstanding pick even though some thought Bradley Chubb was the better overall talent when the Browns were on the clock. His best days are still ahead.

  Browns | Jarvis Landry still a popular target    Sun Jan 20, 08:53 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry had a career-low 81 receptions in 2018, but his 149 target were tied for ninth in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Landry didn't have double-digit targets in a game past Week 8 in 2018. As the Browns offense continues to evolve they might rely on Landry just a bit less. Projecting him for similar stats in 2019 isn't outlandish given QB Baker Mayfield's ability to spread the ball around to multiple targets.

  Browns | Nick Chubb showed explosiveness    Sat Jan 19, 11:07 PM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb's four runs of 40-plus yards and 11 runs of 20-plus yards in 2018 both ranked second in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Chubb gained a first down on 24.5 percent of his carries in 2018, good for 14th best in the league at the running back position. He didn't really get going for the Browns until Week 7 and ended up just four yards short of 1,000 rushing yards as a rookie.

  Browns | Cleveland hiring Todd Monken as OC    Mon Jan 14, 12:08 AM

The Cleveland Browns are hiring Todd Monken (Buccaneers) as their offensive coordinator, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Footballguys view: Monken did a good job of calling plays for the Buccaneers for most of last season. He teams up with new head coach Freddie Kitchens to give the Browns some offensive punch in 2019. We'll see if Monken gets to call plays for Baker Mayfield and company on offense or if Kitchens wants to do that this season.

  Browns | Gregg Williams done with Browns    Wed Jan 9, 01:23 PM

Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was fired Wednesday, Jan. 9, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Williams was the interim coach for the Browns after Hue Jackson was fired and he led the team to a 5-3 record. We'll see if he can latch on with another team as the Browns hired Freddie Kitchens as their new head coach and let Williams go.

  Browns | Freddie Kitchens takes over in Cleveland    Wed Jan 9, 01:16 PM

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens was named the Browns' new head coach Wednesday, Jan. 9, according to sources. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Kitchens has had a meteoric rise to this position...largely due to his work with QB Baker Mayfield. He took over playcalling duties for the Browns around midseason (Week 9) and the offense took off under his guidance. Kitchens clearly has a strong relationship with Mayfield, one which the Browns hope continues. Armed with multiple young playmakers, the Browns could be making a playoff run in 2019.

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens will interview for the head coaching vacancy Monday, Jan. 7, or Tuesday, Jan. 8.

Footballguys view: Mays is the player we'll watch here in super deep dynasty leagues. He was a seventh-round pick for the Packers when he came out of Utah State in 2017. Mays is a power back, measuring in at 5'11" 237 pounds.

  Browns | Matt Eberflus sought for CLE interview    Mon Dec 31, 11:06 AM

Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus has been sought for an interview by the Cleveland Browns for their head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Eberflus has done a fantastic job turning around the Colts defense. He's seen as a rising star in the coaching ranks based on what he's done in 2018 and his coaching background which comes from the Rod Marinelli and Monte Kiffin coaching tree.

Neither seem to be serious candidates as the Browns may have their pick of coaches available. The Browns will be a hot landing spot because of the talent on the roster, most importantly led by QB Baker Mayfield.

  Browns | Gregg Williams will get shot at HC job    Fri Dec 28, 06:41 PM

Cleveland Browns interim head coach Gregg Williams, who has posted a 5-2 record since taking over for the fired Hue Jackson, will get an interview to become the full-time head coach, general manager John Dorsey has said. 'We'll talk about that after the year,' Williams said Friday, Dec. 28. 'Still on the Ravens and can't lose any focus on this going to be a tough game.'

Footballguys view: Williams has come a long way since bountygate and he seems to riff with the collection of players in Cleveland right now. It sounded absurd two months ago, but he is a legitimate candidate for one of the choice head coaching jobs available in the NFL right now.
