Browns Rumors: Berry, OBJ, Landry, Van Pelt

The Browns dominated last year’s NFL offseason storylines. After their strong finish to the 2018 season, lead executive John Dorsey made a number of aggressive moves, highlighted by the acquisition of Odell Beckham Jr. However, while that momentum led them to be a pundit favorite to win their division and potentially reach the Super Bowl, those predictions never came close to fruition. They finished the season 6-10 and moved on from Dorsey and rookie head coach Freddie Kitchens.

New general manager Andrew Berry though, seemed to suggest he will at least follow Dorsey in his willingness to make bold moves. In her weekly mailbag, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com noted that Berry was clear in his introductory press conference that he was looking to be aggressive and would not shy away from big moves.

Here are more notes from around the Browns organization:

  • Jay Glazer of The Athletic does not expect Cleveland to make any moves to unload either Beckham or Jarvis Landry this offseason. Glazer noted that new head coach Kevin Stefanski would likely want as many offensive weapons as possible given his focus on offense. Glazer did note that both Beckham and Landry have to be invested in Stefanski for that to work. He could still see a trade occurring if they are unwilling to buy-in.
  • Cleveland has yet to announce if there will be a quarterbacks coach on Stefanski’s staff. In a separate part of her mailbag, Mary Kay Cabot suggested there is a pretty good chance that offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt will serve the dual role as coordinator and QB coach considering his lengthy experience at that position.

      • That is factually incorrect. The Browns won 6 games last year and the Dolphins won 5. So… not even close to ‘twice as much’.

    It doesn’t matter how much money or talent you have that organization is horribly run. You can’t keep overhauling you front office, and coaches every 2 years and expect to win on the field. Feels bad man!

    What’s the trade value for either of these guys? I’d imagine if the right deal was offered they’re gone.

    “He could still see a trade occurring if they are unwilling to buy-in.”

    If they don’t buy in, sit their butts on the bench. Don’t reward players who don’t want to contribute by trading them…….unless it’s to Detroit.

      I find it amusing that because Odell dropped some passes he is immediately accused of not “buying in”. Mike Evans and Kenny Golladay had fewer receptions than Beckham with only a marginally better catch percentage but nobody is saying they didn’t buyin with their teams.
