Browns Not In Love With Any Top QB Prospects
The Browns have the first and fourth pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Browns are in search of a quarterback and it has been a foregone conclusion that Cleveland would select a quarterback with one of their top two picks.
According to draft insider Tony Pauline, the Browns are "not enamored" with any of this year's top quarterback prospects. Despite Pauline stating the Browns aren't interested in any of this year's top quarterbacks, he has the Browns selecting USC quarterback Sam Darnold fourth overall.
It's still a mystery what the Browns will do with their first overall pick, but it would be hard for them to pass on a quarterback with their first two picks considering four quarterbacks are expected to go in the Top 10 of the draft.
Redskins Looking For Running Back Upgrade
The Redskins running game struggled last season, juggling multiple running backs trying to find a recipe for success. ESPN's John Keim believes the Redskins will "try to upgrade" at running back.
Expect Chris Thompson to remain the third down back for the team, but the early down role for Washington is still a question mark. Fourth-round rookie Samaje Perine failed to impress on a consistent basis and Rob Kelly is merely a glorified fullback.
Look for the Redskins to either find a player in free agency such as Browns running back Isaiah Crowell or select a running back in the draft. Crowell has been linked to the Redskins this offseason, the 25-year-old in 2017 had 853 rushing yards and two touchdowns.
Ravens Could Cut Danny Woodhead
The Baltimore Ravens cap situation is tight, with only $10.3 million in free cap space. This means Baltimore needs to make some roster cuts. The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec listed running back Danny Woodhead as a potential cap cut.
Woodhead is a logical cap cut considering he only played eight games and even when he was healthy Woodhead wasn't an important role. The Ravens have Alex Collins and Kenneth Dixon in the backfield who are much younger and capable of handling the Baltimore running game.
The 33-year-old if cut would save the Ravens $1.8 million, thus expect Woodhead to be cut by the Ravens. Woodhead is coming off a season in which he managed only eight games and was not a big part of the offense even when on the field.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
