The offseason is a time when coaches, players, agents, and pundits all make prognostications about potential moves in the NFL. It’s our job to decipher which of the things we hear are fact and which are fiction.
The Cleveland Browns are still planning on Tyrod Taylor being their starting QB for Week 1.
Fact or Fiction? Fact: The Browns specifically brought in Tyrod Taylor for this very reason. They knew they were going to draft a rookie QB at #1 and they needed to find someone who could run the team until the rookie (in this case Baker Mayfield) was ready. Expect Taylor to start the first ten games. Mayfield might get his first chance Week 12 after the Browns have their BYE week in Week 11.
The Cleveland Browns are open to trading WR Corey Coleman.
Fact or Fiction? Fact: I was surprised that the Browns didn’t trade Corey Coleman the second they drafted WR Antonio Callaway. With Landry, Gordon, and now Callaway in the fold, Coleman will only see about four or five targets a game. Look for the Browns to move Coleman for a third or fourth round draft pick right before the start of the season. For what it’s worth, Coleman to the Cowboys would be a great fit, and I would love to see that happen.
