You've surely seen and read plenty about the Browns through this busy off-season, training camp, and pre-season. So who's gonna make the team? Go on the record with your 53-man roster prediction and you could win a signed copy of Brown for the Count: A Compendium of Cleveland Browns Lists by yours truly, mailed straight to you.
Just use this form to name the 53 players you think will be Browns on opening day. Whoever gets the most right wins. It's that simple.
Start here for an updated glimpse of the Browns current roster. But keep in mind that the final 53 (the 46 players active for the Eagles game plus seven game-day inactives) often includes new players added after the league-wide final cutdown date.
Here's the only catch: you'd best enter right now, because this contest will be locked upon the kickoff of the third exhibition game, this Friday at Tampa Bay. The…
Raw impressions from last night's losing pre-season effort against the Falcons:
Among a crowded roster of seven tight ends, camp phenom Connor Hamlett missed an opportunity last night. He held on the opening kickoff, dropped an easy touchdown flip from Josh McCown, and then covered up another tight end for illegal formation in the red zone.

Tonight the Browns bring a revamping product onto the field under revamped leadership. Their hosts are one of the league's great organizations, historically and currently: the Green Bay Packers. That franchise knows what it is, how it wants to function, and who its leaders are, because they've been there. They've imbued their community with the look and feel of winners in the league's smallest market, unironically branded as Titletown, U. S. A. Meanwhile the Browns are looking for answers and feeling their way toward a much-needed turnaround.
