2. Not a good look for Cleveland Browns offense
Count me as someone who can’t wait for the OTAS and minicamp to end, especially with the offense staying away from practice in solidarity with center and union president J.C. Tretter, who wants to do away with the workouts.
Many defensive starters showed up to practice, but the key offensive players were missing, instead, practicing with Mayfield on their own in Texas.
As whether Kevin Stefanski gave Mayfield any specific instructions on what to do, the second-year head coach said he has “No jurisdiction” on what happens outside Berea.
Tretter has a point about OTAs and minicamp, especially with the league’s public stance on player safety. The pandemic proved these workouts, some of which are “voluntarily,” aren’t really all that important, however, with the offense flying solo ,and then the players coming to town to play in the softball game, the unit better be ready to roll come September.
For what it’s worth, I expect the offense to be fine, with an entire training camp to get things right. That said, with the Chiefs reporting to practice, the Browns offense isn’t making the team look good in June.
Alas, no one will remember June if the Browns are barreling toward the postseason in December.
