Cleveland Browns News

Jarvis Landry, On schedule in recovery

Landry (hip) is on schedule in his rehabilitation, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: New Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said both Landry and Odell Beckham (abdomen) "are exactly where they need to be" in their offseason recovery. That duo is expected to return as the starting wide receivers, but in an offense that is expected to change with the arrival of Stefanski.

Baker Mayfield, Has backing of new coach

Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed Mayfield is the starting quarterback, Marla Ridnour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: This is probably not surprising news, but the addition of free agent Case Keenum, who has history with Stefanski, caused some minor rumbling following Mayfield's 2019 season in which he threw nearly as many interceptions (21) as touchdowns (22). "I believe in Baker Mayfield, he's our starting quarterback. He's a young player that I think we've all seen glimpses of this kid being a really good player," Stefanski said. The offense in 2019 was dysfunctional under former head coach Freddie Kitchens, but Stefanski has made moves to change the attack in 2020. The addition of a fullback (Andy Janovich) and a second tight end (Austin Hooper) suggests a pivot from the wideout-focused offense of 2019.

David Njoku, No trade imminent

Despite signing Austin Hooper, the Browns aren't expected to trade Njoku this offseason, ESPN.com's Jake Trotter reports.

Analysis: Hooper's presence will make it harder for Njoku to draw targets and establish fantasy value, but the young tight end should nonetheless have an important role under new coach Kevin Stefanski, who frequently utilized multi-TE formations while serving as offensive coordinator in Minnesota last year. It's also worth noting that the Browns don't have an established No. 3 wide receiver, though they did trade for fullback Andy Janovich (elbow) a couple weeks ago. The team has until early May to make a decision on Njoku's fifth-year contract option for 2020, with a report from February suggesting it likely would be picked up. The Hooper signing might change things, and it might also make the Browns more receptive if another team comes calling with a generous trade offer for Njoku.

Cody Kessler, Cut by New England

The Patriots are releasing Kessler on Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The Patriots are left with Jarrett Stidham and Brian Hoyer as the only quarterbacks on their roster, setting the state for an addition via free agency or the draft. Kessler was brutal in his stints with the Browns and Jaguars, and he hasn't appeared in a game since 2018. He served as the No. 3 quarterback in New England for part of last season.

Greg Joseph, Competition on the way

GM Jon Robinson suggested that the Titans plan to bring in some competition for Joseph, who finished the 2019 campaign as the team's kicker, Erik Bacharach of The Tennessean reports.

Analysis: Robinson acknowledged that Joseph did a good job of "steadying the rudder" after he took over kicking duties last December, noting that the team intends to "add some competition there. We're looking at some guys in free agency and the draft." The 25-year-old, who was with the Browns in 2018, ended up seeing action in five games with Tennessee (including the playoffs) last season, making his only field-goal attempt and converting all 18 of his extra point tries in that span.
