The Cleveland Browns have gone through a myriad of changes so far this offseason and are unlikely to be done. However, with Deshaun Watson introduced to the media and awaiting the next destination for Baker Mayfield, the Browns could be in a little bit of a lull when it comes to big roster moves.
The offseason has already been full of them. It started off with a bang trading for Amari Cooper. Watson was the other major addition with Chase Winovich, Taven Bryan and Jakeem Grant helping areas of need.
The team has also had some subtractions including the releases of Jarvis Landry, J.C. Tretter and Austin Hooper. Case Keenum was traded to Buffalo while M.J. Stewart signed with the Houston Texans.
Jadeveon Clowney is the team’s remaining 2021 starter that is a free agent. The team has reportedly had some interest in returns for both Clowney and Landry. Landry had been in discussions to join Watson in Atlanta had he chosen there so a return could be in the works. Clowney posted on Instagram when Cleveland added the big-name quarterback.
While this is highly unlikely to be the team’s final 53-man roster at the end of training camp, it gives a look at where the roster currently sits. With multiple changes since our initial projection, the roster starts to really take shape.
For this iteration, Baker Mayfield will not be included as part of the roster. While it is possible, it is highly unlikely that he returns. With three other quarterbacks added this offseason, we won’t be including a fourth for this roster.
David Njoku and D’Ernest Johnson are included despite neither having signed their tenders nor a long-term deal.
