Dez Bryant again after vested vet guarantee expires next week” (Plain Dealer) - “Dez Bryant slipped to the Browns’ back burner after visiting the club last month Womens Customized Cleveland Browns Jerseys , but things could heat up again next week...”“Browns digging in as Steelers come to town” (Browns.com) - “Jackson doesn’t want to make Sunday’s season bigger than it is. It’s one game — albeit a big one against a bitter divisional rival — in a long season full of them.”“Josh Gordon believes Browns’ hope for his return is justified” (ESPN) - “The Cleveland Browns have been down this road before. Several times. But they believe this time it will be different, and this is the time when Josh Gordon will return to the field and stay on the field.”“In his first months as GM, John Dorsey sought — and delivered — real change” (C-T) - “John Dorsey arrived in time to see the final four losses of the 0-16 season. When the carnage was complete, he and coach Hue Jackson sat down to assess the roster...”“10 Expectations for the 2018 Browns” (WFNY) - “Expectations for this year’s Browns team has been all over the place. Actually, it is pretty difficult to predict this season’s turnout under the leadership of Hue Jackson for a third straight year.”“Baker Mayfield’s Cleveland Browns jersey among NFL’s top five sellers” (WKYC) - “Baker Mayfield has yet to throw a pass in a regular-season game, but he continues to be one of the most popular players in the National Football League.”NFL:“Le’Veon Bell unlikely to play Sunday; agent hints at longer absence” (ESPN) - “Barring an unforeseen development, the All-Pro running back is not expected to play Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, according to a source...”“Injury roundup: Dolphins place MarQueis Gray on IR” (NFL.com) - “The Dolphins placed starting tight end MarQueis Gray on injured reserve and signed veteran Gavin Escobar as a corresponding roster move White Kevin Zeitler Jersey , the team announced Thursday.”No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield signs rookie deal with Browns The Cleveland Browns avoided a holdout with No. 1 pick Baker Mayfield, inking the rookie to a four-year, $32.68 million contract, including a $21.85 million signing bonus and fifth-year team option, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.The contract includes offset language, meaning the Browns will not be on the hook for Mayfield’s guaranteed salary should they release him and he signs with another team, per the Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot.Mayfield was promoted to the Browns’ second-team offense during summer organized team activities, but he heads into training camp as a clear backup to recently acquired quarterback Tyrod Taylor.Head coach Hue Jackson has maintained a hard-line stance on Mayfield’s prospects for earning the team’s starting quarterback job.“I’m not going to back off of this White Damarious Randall Jersey ,” coach Hue Jackson said during rookie minicamp. “We can keep writing this narrative. Tyrod Taylor’s the starting quarterback of this football team, and that won’t change.”Jackson is obviously skeptical after trotting out rookies DeShone Kizer and Cody Kessler well before they were ready to lead an NFL offense in each of the last two seasons.With Taylor slotted to begin, and presumably finish the season, there is little pressure on Mayfield to get onto the field and become a leader in his rookie season. But Mayfield is a competitor, and as the team’s primary backup—especially in Cleveland, and especially given Jackson’s propensity to flip-flop on his quarterback choices—he must be ready at all times to take the field and lead the Browns offense.Mayfield is aware of this and is heading into training camp with the mindset that he has to be ready to play if called on.“I wasn’t brought here to just start, I was brought here to help turn this thing around,” Mayfield said during a rookie minicamp press conference. “Whatever my role is that’s what I need to do. “Whether that’s playing scout team http://www.authenticsclevelandbrowns.com/cheap-briean-boddy-calhoun-jersey , or being the best backup possible, or playing. For me, I’m not worried about that, I need to be prepared for when I do get my shot to be ready to play.”Mayfield now has no more hurdles to clear other than reporting to camp and letting it fly. We’ll see what role the Browns have in store for him after the young quarterback has a chance to show his progress in front of his coaches, and eventually to the world in the team’s upcoming preseason games.
