Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry has been swinging a heavy hammer at the team’s defense during this offseason.
- Jadeveon Clowney and Takkarist McKinley at defensive end
- Sheldon Day, Malik Jackson, Malik McDowell, Damion Square, Tommy Togai and Marvin Wilson at defensive tackle
- Tony Fields II, Anthony Walker and Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah at linebacker
- Troy Hill and Greg Newsome at cornerback
- John Johnson III and Richard LeCounte III at safety
All that work is an effort to give defensive coordinator Joe Woods the types of players he needs to prevent the likes of Baltimore’s Trace McSorley or Kansas City’s Chad Henne, plus a few more notable players, from converting on key third downs to help defeat the Browns.
