Long-time Baker Mayfield critic and Cleveland Browns belittler Colin Cowherd believes the AFC North squad is primed for a Super Bowl run.
On top of that, he thinks the Browns should be favorites if they sign former No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney.
The Browns are firmly in the mix for Clowney, having pursued him last year and hosting him last week for a visit. He’d play a key role for the team at the defensive end spot opposite of Myles Garrett and would have a chance to rejuvenate his career. Cowherd claims he has been “more right” on Cleveland than any other team in the league and sees Clowney making the Browns one of the most talented squads in the league.
“Jadeveon Clowney is close to signing with Cleveland,” Cowherd said on his show this week. “Jadeveon Clowney is one of those guys who has never quite lived up to the hype, but now he’s undervalued. He can play and he’s a good player. He’s not worth big money and he’s not as good as his hype, but the idea that Jadeveon Clowney isn’t good is ridiculous.
