4. Cleveland Browns TE Austin Hooper

If there’s a player who won’t be back next season, it’s likely to be Hooper. His production just doesn’t warrant his contract.

He salvaged the Steelers game with a 21-yard catch and run near the end of the contest, but he had those two big drops earlier in the game.

More often than not, when he makes a grab, he usually goes straight to the ground.

I’d be more inclined to bring David Njoku back, who has flashed when called upon. The 2017 first-round pick leads the Browns with four touchdowns.  Harrison Bryant, who’s is developing nicely in year two, has three touchdowns, which is tied with Hooper.

Incredibly, the top Browns wide receiving touchdown threat only has three touchdowns, and that’s Donovan Peoples-Jones. Yees, that’s “Same old Browns” stuff. There’s an entire RedZone channel dedicated to quarterbacks airing it out to receivers and the top Brown wideout has three scores.

Get me to training camp, already.
