Ten moves the Cleveland Browns must make this offseason to begin their climb back to being a respectable, competitive professional football team.
There’s only one place to go for the Cleveland Browns following an 0-16 season, right? Eh, perhaps you shouldn’t agree so quickly. Cleveland could get stuck in the mud and not win a game next season, either.
Hey, it’s unlikely, but it would be “So Browns.”
Now that the Browns have wrapped the worst two year run in NFL history, new general manager John Dorsey is tasked with turning this thing around.
Think about this…the NFL has been around for 98 years. No other franchise in the history of the league has endured a 1-31 mark. Interestingly enough, the 2008-2009 Detroit Lions (2-30) and the 2009-2009St. Louis Rams (3-29) are next in line.
So yeah, Browns fans. Remember when we were making fun of Cincinnati for being The Shield’s Doormat. Well, that’s us now.
Dorsey’s bar is not high though, although the new GM has stated that his goal is to win the AFC North.
It’s a good goal to have, because if your’e not trying to win, what are you doing on the field. Dorsey’s players need a reason to believe and he’s given them a goal for 2018.
Realistically, you’d like to see the Browns be in contention for the playoffs at least through November. So often since 1999, the team is usually eliminated from postseason contention by September.
With that in mind, the Browns can begin the massive turnaround by following these 10 steps.
