    I'll be sure to get a Dawg in the next draft. I got you. Hopefully Pettis brings his A-game on special teams. He's currently burried at receiver.

    Late off-season signings see Colin Kaepernick return to NFL


    After a turbulent two years full of controversy, Colin Kaepernick is officially back in the NFL as part of the Baltimore Ravens



    With a slew of free agents remaining unsigned, the 32 NFL teams went back to work after the NFL Draft concluded. The biggest signing of the period had to be the Baltimore Ravens signed former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to a one-year contract. Kaepernick, 30, has not suited up for an NFL team since he was released by the 49ers in 2016. His remaning unsigned in the past season led to controversy that he was being blackballed by the NFL after his controversial protest of racial injustice by kneeling during the U.S. National Anthem.

    Kaepernick has 72 passing touchdowns and 13 rushing touchdowns in his career and will battle incumbent starter Joe Flacco for the starting spot. It is largely expected that Kaepernick will be the backup quarterback for the Ravens.

    In other news, the New England Patriots, thought to be trending down with the retirement of legendary quarterback Tom Brady, may be right back into the competition for the AFC by signing quarterback Tyrod Taylor to a one-year contract. Taylor, under the coaching of Bill Belichick and recently returned offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, will be looking to take the next step. Now tooled with an offense that boasts the likes of Brandin Cooks, Rob Gronkowski, and Julian Edelman, Taylor had a vastly improved system ahead of him. The Patriots also signed former Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron to a contract, addressing their future needs at the quarterback position.

    Another quarterback back into the mix of things if controversial former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel. Manziel, who hasn't played in the NFL since 2015 when he was released by the Cleveland Browns. He has since been signed to the Seattle Seahawks, most likely backing up Russell Wilson. Manziel has been working back towards the NFL after a string of arrests. There were previous reports that he was negotiating a deal with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League before being offered a workout with the Seahawks. They signed him soon after.

    Below is a finished list of the signings that has taken place since the conclusion of the 2018 NFL season:

    New England Patriots sign QBs Tyrod Taylor and AJ McCarron
    Minnesota Vikings sign QB Jay Cutler
    Indianapolis Colts sign ROLB Barkevious Mingo
    Cincinnati Bengals sign QB Matt Barkley
    Buffalo Bills sign QB Robert Griffin III and FS Tre Boston
    Denver Broncos sign CB Johnson Bademosi
    Arizona Cardinals sign QB Matt Moore and DT Dontari Poe
    Kansas City Chiefs sign CB Sterling Moore and WR Kendall Wright
    Miami Dolphins sign QB Matt Flynn and WR De’Anthony Thomas
    Atlanta Falcons sign QB Brock Osweiler
    San Francisco 49ers sign FS Reggie Nelson, MLB Demario Davis, CB Bashaud Breeland, and WR Adam Humphries
    New York Giants sign RT Tom Compton
    Jacksonville Jaguars sign MLB Todd Davis
    New York Jets sign HB Dion Lewis
    Carolina Panthers sign QB Geno Smith
    Baltimore Ravens sign QB Colin Kaepernick and DT Haloti Ngata
    Washington Redskins sign LG Andrew Norwell and HB Rex Burkhead
    Seattle Seahawks sign QB Johnny Manziel
    Houston Texans sign QB Blaine Gabbert and SS Jahleel Addae
    Tennessee Titans sign QB Tom Savage
    Cleveland Browns sign DT Dominique Easley, FB John Conner, and QB Mark Sanchez

    2018 Pre-Season: Cleveland Browns


    Will we see former Heisman winner Baker Mayfield emerge as the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns?



    The Cleveland Browns will battle against the Philadelphia Eagles, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Indianapolis Colts in their four pre-season games this season. Here is how the roster is currently broken down and analyzed to unfold.

    Quarterbacks: 4 Safe - Baker Mayfield (R)
    On The Cusp: DeShone Kizer, Mark Sanchez, Cody Kessler

    Notes: The benefit for Baker Mayfield is that he hasn't screwed up in the NFL yet. It's essentially his job to lose this off-season. Signing Mark Sanchez brings in some competition for the two young quarterbacks. Don't be surprised, with the Browns' track record of quarterbacks, that they keep at least three.

    Runningbacks: 6 Safe - Saquon Barkley (R)
    On The Cusp: Benny Cunningham Jr, Duke Johnson Jr, Matthew Dayes, Joshua Rounds, Corey Grant

    Notes: It's shaping up that Saquon Barkley will be the feature back and Benny Cunningham Jr will be a receiving-type back. Duke Johnson Jr is coming off a season to forget. Don't look now, but the likes of Matthew Dayes or Joshua Rounds could very well steal a spot from the other two with a solid pre-season. It's a very uphill battle for the likes of Corey Grant.

    Fullbacks: 1 Safe - John Conner

    Wide Receivers: 9 Safe - Josh Gordon, Corey Coleman, Marquise Lee, Christian Kirk (R)
    On The Cusp: Philly Brown, Sammie Coats, Ricardo Louis, Dante Pettis (R), Rashard Higgins

    Notes: Dante Pettis is probably going to be safe due to his rookie status and seemingly amazing return abilities. Sammie Coats and Philly Brown have a lot to prove to steal playing time from the likes of new signing Marquise Lee and already impressive Christian Kirk.

    Tight Ends: 3 Safe - David Njoku
    On The Cusp: Seth DeValve, Randall Telfer

    Notes: The backup job (which interestingly, in twin tight packages that we've seen run a lot in this Bob Stoops-led training camp) is up for grabs and is a battle between Seth DeValve and Randal Telfer. Don't be surprised that, if the roster allows for it, all three are kept on.

    Left Tackles: 3 Safe - Joe Thomas, Matthew McCants, Zach Sterup

    Left Guards: 2 Safe - Kevin Zeitler, Spencer Drango

    Centers: 3 Safe - J.C. Tretter
    On The Cusp: Marcus Martin, Anthony Fabiano

    Notes: Classic battle for the backup position. With the woes of the Browns' offensive line, a position change could be in the horizon.

    Right Guards: 3 Safe - Joel Bitonio, Austin Reiter, Chris Barker (Note: could see a position change)

    Right Tackles: 3 Safe - Adam Bisnowaty, Roderick Johnson
    On The Cusp: Shon Coleman

    Notes: Could be the victim of the classic "odd man out" scenario depending on how the Browns want to play things.

    Defensive Ends: 4 Safe - Chad Thomas (R), Emmanuel Ogbah
    On The Cusp: Xavier Cooper, Nate Orchard

    Notes: Emmanuel Ogbah is the Browns' best defensive end in their new 3-4 system, and Chad Thomas has the best upside, which saves their position. Xavier Cooper and Nate Orchard are battling for necessity.

    Defensive Tackles: 4 Safe - Danny Shelton
    On The Cusp: Caleb Brantley, Larry Ogunjobi, Dominique Easley

    Notes: Chances are all four of these guys make it to 53. They are all playing for playing time, essentially.

    Outside Linebackers: 5 Safe - Jamie Collins Sr, Myles Garrett
    On The Cusp: Carl Nassib, Tyrone Holmes, Joe Schobert

    Notes: Chances are one of these guys are getting cut, and it's damn-sure not going to be a former first overall pick or the gift from the New England Patriots.

    Middle Linebackers: 4 Safe - NaVorro Bowman, Christian Kirksey
    On The Cusp: Dominique Alexander, James Burgess

    Notes: A previously weak point of the Browns, seriously got a face-lift when they brought in NaVorro Bowman. These players are more than likely all making the final roster unless replaced.

    Cornerbacks: 6 Safe - Jason McCourty, Denzel Ward (R)
    On The Cusp: Jamar Taylor, Howard Wilson, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Channing Stribling

    Notes: At least one of these guys are going to be cut, if not two. Denzel Ward is getting his rookie card to save him a spot as well as actually impressing so far in training camp. Jamar Taylor essentially has a spot lined up for him unless he seriously disappoints. All these guys are going to have to really show their stuff.

    Safeties: 6 Safe - Damon Webb (R), Jabrill Peppers
    On The Cusp: Ed Reynolds II, Tyvis Powell, Ibraheim Campbell, Derrick Kindred

    Notes: Damon Webb has brought his A-game thus far in training camp and almost has the starting position locked up. Jabrill Peppers continues to impress so he's a mainstay. Ed Reynolds II just got a new contract so he might stick around. The other guys are more than likely going to have to fight for that last spot or maybe two.

    Kickers: 1 Safe - Chris Boswell

    Punters: 1 Safe - Britton Colquitt

    DeShone Kizer throws perfect game as Browns stop Eagles



    • Baker Mayfield started the game off for the Cleveland Browns and immediately felt the pressure from the Philadelphia Eagles' defensive front. He completed three out of five passes for a total of 17 passing yards. He took a sack and missed his two passes while getting hit by Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox. Mayfield looked immediatedly out of touch, but considering he was only on the field for the first two drives and handed the ball off to running back Saquon Barkley, it's a little too early to judge.

    • Speaking of 1st overall pick, running back Saquon Barkley, he was largely proven ineffective by rushing three times for four yards. He had trouble finding the holes in the offensive line. The Philadelphia Eagles' defensive line brought the pressure and both Barkley and Mayfield crumbled.

    • The star of the game on the offensive side of things was easily wide receiver Christian Kirk. He made the easy catches and the tough catches, reeling in eight catches for 85 yards, including an amazing grab in the end zone. He was gaining seperation all night long and outplayed the top brass of receivers. He's playing himself into the starting lineup. Sammie Coats also had a big night with 7 catches, 62 receiving yards and a touchdown.

    • Chad Thomas, another newly acquired draft pick out of the U, recorded two tackles for loss, getting right after Eagles' running back Corey Clement. With the poor play of Xavier Cooper, who is ahead of Thomas currently on the depth chart, we could see a whole lot of Thomas going forward.

    • DeShone Kizer went perfect for 134 passing yards, going 13 for 13 and scoring a touchdown. Kizer looked polished and handled the Eagles' defense with grace. He played himself right up the depth chart.

    • Lastly, Cody Kessler got into the game before Kizer, throwing for 135 passing yards and two touchdowns while completing 71% of his passes in an impressive outing. Mark Sanchez did not get into the game.

    Browns' defense annihilate Broncos, Kessler continues to shine



    • Well, this was the first opportunity the Cleveland Browns got to experience a Ryan Tannehill-led Denver Broncos. He went a perfect 4 for 4, picking up 46 passing yards before stalling against a fairly decent Browns' pass rush led by the likes of NaVorro Bowman and Myles Garrett. It's interesting to see how well the linebackers' corps are pairing up. The secondary, admittedly struggled against the Broncos' pair of star receivers, Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. In a regular season game, at that rate, the likes of Jason McCourty and Jamar Taylor are getting torched all night.

    • Quarterback DeShone Kizer got the tap to start against the Broncos' defense after an ultra impressive outing against the Eagles in week one. Though he did go 8 for 12, he threw a costly interception to Bradley Roby before the first quarter wrapped up, which really affected his rating for this game. Despite this, Kizer guided the Browns' passing game effectively against a stout Broncos' front seven, obviously featuring All-Pro linebacker Von Miller.

    • Up next was Cody Kessler, who also impressed in his outing against the Philadelphia Eagles. Though he would not get on the board, he diced the Broncos' secondary, going 6 for 8 with 160 passing yards, getting him to a 116.6 passer rating. With two strong outings, previously expected to be a late round cut by the Browns, he is currently in first place for the starting gig if someone doesn't make a late push.

    • Rookie Baker Mayfield made a rookie mistake when the Broncos read a screen pass and picked him off, but he also hooked up with Christian Kirk for a touchdown to go along with his 120 passing yards. He went 12 for 16 and easily looked a lot more comfortable than he did against the Eagles. His next test towards getting the starting spot has to be playing against starters, which should be coming sooner rather than later. Mark Sanchez finally got into some action, impressing by going 3 for 3 and scoring a touchdown on a throw to wide receiver Sammie Coats.

    • Duke Johnson Jr improved on a dastardly bad first game against the Eagles, albeit posting a mediocre 26 yards on nine carries. Though he did get into the end zone and outperformed Saquon Barkley and his 22 yards on six carries. The Browns need to fix their running game and quick. Christian Kirk and Sammie Coats are playing themselves into the starting lineup. Kirk caught seven catches for 90 yards while Coates had the big game with five catches for 109 yards and two scores.

    • Linebacker Joe Schobert picked off Broncos' quarterback Paxton Lynch twice, and cornerback Howard Wilson, with a team-high 10 tackles, got an interception of his own. Chad Thomas picked up half of a sack while continuing to get pressure on the quarterback.
