    YES! This is great news. I do not know if the Browns will be successful this year and I do not think very highly of Hue Jackson but that roster is loaded with young talent. Once these young guys get a year or two to develop look out. On paper they are not a 0-16 team or even, I think, a 1-3 win team. But that's not important. What's important is Baker Mayfield. With his attitude and competitiveness this will be must-see-TV.

    Tyrod Taylor, and I know I might be beating a dead horse here, is an underrated QB. He's at least an average starter and I think slightly above average. He has his limitations but you can win with Tyrod Taylor. So many people focus on what he can't do or that he is not a top 10 QB that they miss what he is. I like to go to a lot of different sources when trying to solidify an opinion on anything football related. PFF, FO, the NDTs/ITPs of the world all think Taylor is, to some degree, a capable starter. It is unusual when most sources are largely in agreement. But when the scouting matches the standard numbers analysis and they both match the advanced stats it makes me feel much more confident in my own opinion. Average to above average QBs can win with the right talent around them. And about that talent...
    The Browns upgraded their interior offensive line, got their QB of the future, signed a solid veteran QB you can win with, have weapons (some young) at TE/WR, and with Chubb should have a good RB committee. On offense aside from needing Chubb and Njoku to develop they are weak at tackle but that's about it. On paper this offense should not be last again, or, I think even in the bottom 10, for points per game.

    On defense their front 7 has the potential to be elite even this year but their secondary is a work in progress. Adding Ward helps but CB is even more difficult than average to play well in year 1.

    I am excited to see how this team comes together. I think in the next 2-3 years they will mature into a playoff contender.
