The Cleveland Browns May Actually Look Like an NFL Team in 2018 with Tyrod Taylor and Jarvis Landry Additions


The Cleveland Browns sent shockwaves throughout the entire NFL yesterday when ESPN’s Adam Schefter broke the news that the Browns traded for both Jarvis Landry and Tyrod Taylor. Both moves are sure to make an immediate impact as Landry will be a great pair with current receiver Josh Gordon, and Taylor gives the Browns an immediate upgrade at the quarterback position.

For years, I’ve been very critical of the Browns organization. I personally believe they are incompetent in terms of how to run a franchise, and have proven that over and over again. However, these moves are a huge step in the right direction — even if it came at the expense of an 0-16 embarrassment of a season last year.

The Browns also have two first round draft picks, both in the top 5. How they utilize these picks is tantamount to the season they are expecting to have in 2018, as well as the franchise they are looking to build moving forward.

Many are predicting and projecting the Browns to select dynamic Penn State running back, Saquon Barkley, who absolutely destroyed the NFL Combine last week, with the No.1 overall pick. With Taylor now projected as the Browns’ starter, they can go a variety of ways with the No. 4 pick. As of now, many are expecting the Browns to still select a quarterback with this pick. However, a player such as Alabama’s Minkah Fitzpatrick has been an intriguing for Browns fans who want to see their secondary amplified as much as possible.

The 2018 season just got interesting for the Browns. With a few more moves and veteran additions, it is quite possible they may be in a position to heavily compete in the AFC North this season.
