Hue Jackson Insists Taylor is Still Browns' Starter

Hue Jackson Insists Taylor is Still Browns' Starter

"I am proud and happy about that". They also brought in players through free agency like Bills cornerback E.J. Gaines and cornerback T.J. Carrie.

Now that he's met one of Cleveland's sports icons in Kosar, he's eager to meet another in LeBron James, who at one point took Johnny Manziel under his wing.

The Browns surprised many in the sport when they used their No 1 overall selection on Mayfield, who joined Tyrod Taylor and Drew Stanton as the QBs on the Browns depth chart.

Despite the doubts and skepticism, the Browns are optimistic about the upcoming season, and with all these changes, maybe they should be.

There is still plenty of work to do for the Browns organization that has been the bottom of the barrel in the league for many years. I think about how they deserve a team that's winning, a team they can rally behind, and that's what they'll do no matter what. Dorsey is making moves that he thinks will develop Cleveland into contenders and that could mean getting rid of Jackson and promoting offensive coordinator Todd Haley into the head coach position. Cleveland waived Telfer, a 2015 sixth-round draft pick. They got a free safety, a couple of corners a wideout and a quarterback.

However, Cleveland fans have reasons to be optimistic as they also landed Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward as fourth overall pick, Nevada guard Austin Corbett and Georgia running-back Nick Chubb at number 33 and 35 respectively in the National Football League draft.

For all the official business and minor details that must be handled during a rookie minicamp, practices are brief and generally ugly. Assuming Mayfield drove about 30 hours a week (and even that might be a high estimate), he made $590 a week, or $30,680 per year.

"I can't wait to learn from [Taylor], especially with him and a guy like Drew Stanton", Mayfield said during a ESPN "SportsCenter" interview on Friday. "There's a lot of buzz going around, which is great for the team".

"I'm being very honest", Jackson was quoted as saying by CBS. "I did all my evaluations of the season". And he has another battle ahead of him with Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor. While still trying to prove himself on the field, Mayfield spent some time working as an Uber driver. With Ben Roethlisberger still commanding the Steelers and the Bengals being all in this year, it's still a long shot for the Browns to compete for the AFC North title. But Jackson emphasized the need to keep things in perspective. "For me being as competitive as I am, the bigger the challenge for me, the better for me". You watch everything. And Baker blew me away. "But they're not going to look anything like that 0-16 club". We didn't know who the rookie would be, but we knew the team wanted to start a veteran. "We don't have to talk about it, we know what we have in there, and we'll just handle it from there". They were told about what it's like to play for a fan base longing to see the Browns win again.
