The Cleveland Browns have a few holes to resolve
The Cleveland Browns are coming into the season as expected playoff contenders and maybe even a top team to consider for the Super Bowl. There are a lot of factors to consider before leaping to “Super Bowl contention”, like if the starting quarterback you gave up a king’s ransom for is going to be suspended for his heinous behavior.
Assuming Deshaun Watson isn’t suspended for the year, the team has a shot. Now, don’t buy the hype. Everyone reporting on what Sue Robinson is doing or going to do when it comes to the ruling of his case is full of it. No one knows what she’s going to do so there’s no reason to speculate.
It could be zero games, it could be several years. No one knows, and anyone who thinks they do is selling you something. Or living in denial.
So while we wait for that ruling, it’s important to note that this team is not “loaded with talent” as many claim and this team does in fact have a lot of holes. Not many with the starting 22, granted, but there are some starting spots up for competition. Most of the spots, however, are with the non-starter but non-backup roles.
Your third receiver, your third corner, your third linebacker, etc.
So that’s what we’re looking at today, every position, the players that are up for it, and who we think is going to take home the position’s top spot on the depth chart. So without any further ado, let’s get started.
