  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.

  Browns | Rashard Higgins staying in Cleveland    Wed Mar 17, 09:28 PM

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.

  Browns | Odell Beckham on track    Wed Mar 3, 05:20 PM

Cleveland Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. (knee) is on track with his recovery, according to general manager Andrew Berry.

Footballguys view: We'll see Beckham limited during OTAs and minicamp with the plan he can be ramped up when training camp gets here. The team says they're excited to get him back, and they should be, but releasing or trading Beckham would free up around $15 million in cap space.

  Browns | David Njoku saying goodbye?    Sat Feb 27, 01:06 PM

Cleveland Browns TE David Njoku is a candidate to be released or traded this offseason as heads into the non-guaranteed fifth option year of his rookie contract, and Saturday, Feb. 27, he tweeted what sounds like a goodbye to Browns fans. 'Whatever happens I appreciate all the love from all my loyal fans,' Njoku wrote. 'I've kept quiet for a while but I wanted to express that at least for now. I love u guys.'

Footballguys view: Njoku has upside but needs a fresh start. We'll see him generate interest when on the open market, and there's even a chance some team would trade for him. He's athletically gifted and flashed with the Browns but his relationship with the team seemed to fall apart. Njoku is a player to monitor in dynasty formats due to his skill set.

  Browns | No offer for Rashard Higgins yet    Fri Feb 26, 07:10 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent WR Rashard Higgins said he would like to return to the Browns, but the team has not made a contract offer at this point. The Browns are interested in re-signing Higgins but only at a certain price, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Higgins hit the open market last year and didn't get much interest. The Browns kept him around for a good price, and Higgins caught 37 passes for a career high 599 yards and four touchdowns. He's got talent and the Browns can trust him as a reserve receiver, so it makes sense for the two sides to work something out.

  Browns | Cleveland unlikely to pursue Christian Kirksey    Sun Feb 21, 02:45 PM

  Browns | Baker Mayfield to have option picked up    Sun Feb 21, 02:16 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield will have his fifth-year option exercised this offseason.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Mayfield was the no.1 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft and he's turned into a leader and led the Browns to the playoffs in 2020. The option is expected to cost the team around $20 million, depending on where the 2022 NFL salary cap lands after the TV deals are signed. If he plays well in 2021, Mayfield and the Browns will work on an extension to make him one of the highest-paid quarterbacks in the league.

Cleveland Browns WR Donovan Peoples-Jones ranked fourth among rookie wide receivers with 1.83 receiving yards per route run in 2020, according to Pro Football Focus.

Footballguys view: The rookie from Michigan just showed us a glimpse of what he could do in 2020. He's got a nice size/speed combination and could continue to emerge as a favorite target of QB Baker Mayfield.
