We’re looking at seven Cleveland Browns on the verge of losing their jobs after 2022.
The Cleveland Browns are having a bad year. That’s not in dispute. How bad, whose fault is it, and will there ever be sunshine again; all valid questions. “Is it a bad year?” is not. Yes, it is, stop asking. When a season is as bad as this one is, with huge expectations and even worse, evidence that a 3-6 record was avoidable, usually heads roll for this.
The Browns, rightfully, should only be 2-7, as the Panthers got screwed in that Week 1 outing. The rest of the season the team has looked lost, unprepared, or worse; fantastic but poorly coached.
It’s very likely Kevin Stefanski and company get the benefit of the doubt and get brought back for next year. After all, injuries, suspensions, and poor moves by the higher-ups were the issues for this team. Still, someone has to go after a season like this and that may mean that a lot of talent gets turned over.
After all, this team surprisingly got old very fast. Not only that, but when the embattled Deshaun Watson returns this year, that will trigger his contract to go up by $45 million next year. That means that high-priced contracts that belong to older, struggling players, will likely be the first to go to make room for Watson.
So that’s what we’re looking at, the players who are a bit older, a bit slower, and a bit more likely to either get cut or not re-signed in 2023.
Before anyone asks, this list will not include Anthony Schwartz, Demetric Felton, Tommy Togiai, or Jordan Elliot. Why?
Because they’re awful and should be cut.
