As everyone knows, Cleveland was the laughing stock in the sports world since 1999 when they returned after moving to Baltimore in 1996, but this city has become a growing sports capital that no one expected.
The Cleveland Browns have made a huge splash in the sports world, recently we have acquired star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr who is arguably a top 5 receiver at the moment with his outstanding years on the New York Giants. Beckham, who is 26 years old, was traded in a package with Kevin Zeitler, a first and third round pick and Jabrill peppers for Olivier Vernon and Odell. The Giants were in desperate need of a right guard and Kevin Zeitler was the man to fill it, in 2018 he allowed 1.7% of rushes on his side making him the 3rd best right guard that year, also for the giants, the release of Landon Collins made a gap in their backfield. Peppers could fill that spot very well, in his 2 years in Cleveland he managed 137 tackles along with 1 sack and 2 interceptions.
Odell provides more depth in the browns more the impressive offense, former Heisman winner Baker Mayfield has put on a show his rookie season throwing for 3,725 and a record-tying 27 touchdowns which meet with Russell Wilson and Peyton Manning’s rookie touchdown record. Along with Baker and Odell they have Odell’s former college teammate Jarvis Landry, also they have Antonio Callaway who did have some troubles during training camp but those issues were resolved, other wide receivers include Rashard Higgins, Ricardo Louis, Jaelen Strong (who was given to us by the Houston Texans) Blake Jackson, and Damion Ratley. Combined all the wide receivers had 4,261 yards, 1,000 by Jarvis Landry, this leaves us 109 yards shy of our opponents.
This season for sure will be one to watch out for, in the NFL power rankings the Browns were ranked 11th in the league from their previous 17th last season. Cleveland will hope to regain a championship that we so desperately have hoped for and greatly deserve.
