  Browns | Johnnie Dixon trying out    Sun May 16, 01:26 PM

Free-agent WR Johnnie Dixon (Cardinals) is participating in the Cleveland Browns rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.

Footballguys view: Originally an undrafted free agent for the Texans in 2019, the former Ohio State receiver made some plays for them in the preseason (9 catches, 77 yards) but did not make the team. The Cardinals picked him up and stashed him on their practice squad after that and since then. Dixon is a long shot to make the Browns roster and is angling to get on their practice squad.

  Browns | Cleveland signs three rookies    Thu May 13, 07:24 PM

Cleveland Browns fifth-round draft choice LB Tony Fields II, fifth-round draft choice S Richard LeCounte III and sixth-round draft choice RB Demetric Felton signed four-year contracts with the Browns Thursday, May 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Felton is listed as a running back, but he's really built like a slot receiver. He can contribute out of the backfield and is dangerous in space with his ankle-breaking quickness. He can also line up in the slot and catch passes, so it will be interesting to see how Cleveland uses him as a gadget player.

Notre Dame LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah was flagged for a heart issue late in the draft process that 'was a concern for most teams' but was ultimately cleared a few days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Owusu-Koramoah was expected to be a first-round pick but was not selected until the Cleveland Browns did so at No. 52 overall.

  Browns | Demetric Felton chosen by Cleveland    Sat May 1, 05:05 PM

UCLA WR Demetric Felton was selected in the sixth round (211th pick) of the 2021 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns Saturday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Felton is listed as a wide receiver in some circles, while others list him as a running back. At the Senior Bowl earlier this year, Felton worked out with the running backs but looked more like a slot receiver. He's super quick, has lightning quick feet, and can make defenders look silly in small spaces. He's a playermaker we'll monitor in dynasty formats.

  Browns | Cleveland adds Anthony Schwartz    Fri Apr 30, 11:17 PM

Auburn WR Anthony Schwartz was selected by the Cleveland Browns with the 91st overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Schwartz is a track athlete who lines up at wide receiver. He's the fastest receiver in this class and absolutely flies down the field. Schwartz needs to learn the nuance of the position to be the best pro he can be. However, that type of speed is worth taking a flier on.

  Browns | Door open for Sheldon Richardson    Sat Apr 24, 02:46 PM

Free agent DT Sheldon Richardson, released by the team earlier this month, could be re-signed by the team, general manager Andrew Berry said Friday, April 23. 'I think it is certainly possible,' Berry said in a news conference. 'Obviously, it is something that has to work for all parties involved, but we like Sheldon. He was a productive member of our team and a big part of our success last year. If that ends up being the right fit, that alignment is certainly something we would welcome.'

  Browns | No extension talks for Baker Mayfield    Fri Apr 23, 04:57 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield has not started contract extension talks with the Browns at this point, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Browns picked up Mayfield's fifth-year option. That means they have him under team control through the 2022 season. They've got time to get a long-term contract done. The sooner the better if Mayfield continues to play at a high level.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield's option exercised    Fri Apr 23, 08:59 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield had his fifth-year option exercised Friday, April 23. The deal extends him through 2022, and he'll earn $18.86 million that season.

Footballguys view: The deal keeps him on the books through 2022, but the Browns should work diligently to get a long-term contract hammered out. Mayfield should be one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league when he gets a new deal.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins' targets productive    Sat Apr 10, 01:56 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Rashard Higgins averaged 11.5 receiving yards per target in 2020 -- a figure which trailed only Houston Texans WR Will Fuller (11.7) among qualifiers last season.

Footballguys view: Higgins worked well for the Browns last year, so that's why they brought him back on a one-year deal. So long as Odell Beckham Jr doesn't get traded, Higgins returns as the no.3 receiver for the Browns. Unless someone above him on the depth chart is injured, that doesn't leave much for Higgins in terms of production. He'll be ready if called upon.

  Browns | Nick Chubb breaks off chunk runs    Mon Mar 22, 12:01 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Nick Chubb leads the league with 34 runs of at least 20 yards since 2018, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: Chubb is arguably the best back in the game and you could probably cut out the 'arguably' stuff. He's great at finding the right crease and times up his runs to maximize yardage. Chubb is natural and instinctive as a runner, so this type of advanced data should come as no surprise.

Free-agent WR Rashard Higgins (Browns) said he has agreed to a one-year deal to re-sign with the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, March 17.

Footballguys view: Higgins will return as the #3 receiver. He had some marginal fantasy value after Odell Beckham went down last year. Baker Mayfield loves Higgins, so this is good news for a Browns team that has kept their wide receiver intact.
