  Browns | Myles Garrett tough to slow down    Sat Jan 23, 09:25 PM

Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett was double-teamed on 26 percent of his pass rush attempts in 2020 and ranked third in the NFL in pass rush win rate.

Footballguys view: Like Aaron Donald, Garrett was less than 100% for his team's playoff departure, which stings because the game was so close. The Browns were smart to lock him with a second deal before he got close to the open market.

  Browns | Ryan Switzer signed to futures deal    Sat Jan 23, 12:54 PM

Updating a previous report, Cleveland Browns WR Ryan Switzer has been signed to the Reserve/Futures list on a one-year contract.

Footballguys view: Switzer is a slot receiver who can get open underneath with quickness. He can work on special teams as well. Switzer hasn't done much as he's bounced around the league for a few years.

  Browns | John Kelly inks futures deal with Cleveland    Tue Jan 19, 03:36 PM

Free-agent RB John Kelly signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Footballguys view: Kelly followed up Alvin Kamara at the University of Tennessee, and he looked good as a college back for the Volunteers. His pro career has not gone as planned with Kelly having bounced around to a few different rosters in a short amount of time. His all-purpose skill set will keep us watching him but only in super deep dynasty formats.

  Browns | Odell Beckham Jr. unlikely to get traded    Mon Jan 18, 04:34 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) received a strong indication from head coach Kevin Stefanski on Monday, Jan. 18, that he will not be traded as he continues to recover from his torn anterior cruciate ligament.'I texted with him this morning. I know he's working really hard to get better in his rehab. I'm excited to get him back here.,' Stefanski said of Beckham during a virtual interview on Monday.

Footballguys view: Will they or won't they move on from Beckham? He's under contract through the 2023 season, and Beckham is on the books with a $15.7 million cap hit in 2021. There's still $12.7 million remaining in dead money and then two seasons (2022, 2023) with zero dead money. Beckham had knee surgery in early November, so he should be ready to go by the start of the 2021 regular season.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield viewed as long-term QB    Mon Jan 18, 02:19 AM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield could be approached about a contract extension during the offseason, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, who said that the team is now 'all in' and believes that Mayfield is their 'franchise quarterback.' Rapoport also added that there is 'no rush' on the extension with Mayfield under team control for the next two seasons if the club exercises its fifth-year option.

Footballguys view: The Browns have to make a decision on Mayfield's fifth-year option this offseason. That will keep him under contract for the next two seasons if implemented and give them time to find a good price tag for a long-term deal. Mayfield could get a contract that makes him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL.

  Browns | Cleveland's playoff run ends    Sun Jan 17, 06:30 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield went 23-for-37 for 204 yards, one touchdown and one interception against Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round playoff game. RB Nick Chubb rushed for 69 yards on 13 carries, while RB Kareem Hunt rushed for 32 yards and one touchdown on six carries. WR Rashard Higgins caught five passes for 88 yards on seven targets, TE David Njoku caught four passes for 59 yards on five targets and WR Jarvis Landry caught seven passes for 20 yards and one touchdown on 10 targets.

Footballguys view: It was a valiant effort by the Browns. They had a chance to win it at the end but the Chiefs would not give them the ball back with time dwindling. Cleveland made great strides this season under first-year head coach Kevin Stefanski. We're excited to see what their future holds as the team continues to build from being a playoff contender to a Super Bowl contender.
