  Browns | Joe Flacco not ready to retire    Fri Feb 9, 04:13 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco said he wants to play in the NFL next season.

Footballguys view: Flacco proved last year that he could still start and be effective in the NFL. The Browns didn't go as far in the postseason as they'd like, largely because of Flacco's tendency to play "YOLO" ball, but the veteran quarterback might just be brought back as veteran insurance behind Deshaun Watson.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt undergoes surgery    Thu Feb 1, 10:29 AM

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt (hernia) recently underwent sports hernia surgery to repair a ruptured adductor, according to sources.

Footballguys view: Hunt is a free agent this offseason, and last year's production with the Browns should garner him plenty of interest. While teams may not see him as a lead back anymore, Hunt is a proven player who can at least be an important part of a committee. In fact, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Browns keep him around where he could continue to work behind Nick Chubb.

  Browns | Cleveland hires Ken Dorsey as OC    Mon Jan 29, 04:25 PM

The Cleveland Browns are hiring Ken Dorsey (Bills) to fill the vacant offensive coordinator position, sources said Sunday, Jan. 28.

Footballguys view: The Browns acted decisively to secure Dorsey's services, as offensive coordinator spots around the league are being filled quickly. He was the scapegoat for the Bills offensive issues, but statistically, they didn't improve greatly under no longer interim offensive coordinator Joe Brady. We'll see which hire looks wiser next season.

  Browns | Cleveland requests Kellen Moore interview    Thu Jan 25, 11:10 AM

Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore was requested to interview for the Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator vacancy Thursday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Moore was supposed to be a head coach by now, but things fell off in Dallas and he wasn't as successful as he could have been with the Chargers. Now, we'll see if Moore can find a job with the Eagles or the Browns. Anyone taking over the Browns' offense will get the task of getting QB Deshaun Watson back up to the levels we remember him from his days in Houston.

  Browns | Duce Staley to join staff    Wed Jan 24, 04:25 PM

Former Carolina Panthers running backs coach Duce Staley was hired by the Cleveland Browns Wednesday, Jan. 24, as their new running backs coach, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Staley has been a quality assistant coach for years. Now, he'll get to work in a running back room with the best back in the league (Nick Chubb).

  Browns | GM would like Joe Flacco back    Tue Jan 23, 12:18 AM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent QB Joe Flacco is a player the Browns would like to re-sign this offseason, according to general manager Andrew Berry.

Footballguys view: Flacco played some good football for the Browns last year, and perhaps he'd be interested in returning in 2024 as a backup to Deshaun Watson. It seems like Flacco is in DGAF mode, and it seemed like he enjoyed his time in Cleveland.

  Browns | CLE fires Alex Van Pelt    Wed Jan 17, 11:48 AM

Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt was fired Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Footballguys view: Van Pelt may be out of a job for now, but the way QB Joe Flacco thrived under his guidance (until the Wild Card Round) will get him some interest from other teams. The Browns move forward with HC Kevin Stefanski and a new offensive staff. He'll have to find the right coaches to get the best out of QB Deshaun Watson.

Cleveland Browns OG Joel Bitonio (ankle) said Sunday, Jan. 14, that he plans to play in 2024 despite suffering a multitude of injuries during his 2023 Pro Bowl season. 'I want to play, and I want to show I can still play at a very elite level,' Bitonio said. 'I still feel like I played well this year, but I think there's always more. You always want to push yourself to be at the top of your game, and I still feel good. I'm going to use this offseason to get my body right. But, yeah, I plan to be back.'

  Browns | Deshaun Watson making progress    Sun Jan 14, 03:39 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Deshaun Watson (shoulder) is making good progress in his recovery and will be the Browns starting quarterback moving forward, according to head coach Kevin Stefanski.

Footballguys view: The team also left open the possibility of Joe Flacco returning. The downfield pass offense was better with Flacco, but perhaps Watson will be better next season since he'll be more familiar with his offense and teammates.

  Browns | Kareem Hunt open to returning    Sun Jan 14, 02:37 PM

Cleveland Browns impending free-agent RB Kareem Hunt said he is willing to re-sign with the Browns this offseason but will also consider other options as well.

Footballguys view: Hunt is clearly on the back nine of his career, but played an important role as a short yardage back who kept Jerome Ford fresh. The Browns also have a decision to make on Nick Chubb, who is due an $11.775 million base salary in the last year of his contract coming off of an ACL tear.
