Expectations soar in Cleveland after 2021 playoff appearance


CAMP SITE: Berea, Ohio

LAST YEAR: Finally, the breakthrough. Despite a lack of traditional offseason due to the COVID-19 pandemic, first-year coach Kevin Stefanski helped the Browns end 18-year playoff drought. Then, with Stefanski quarantined after testing positive for the coronavirus, Cleveland beat rival Pittsburgh in the wild-card round for its first postseason win since 1994. The Browns lost to Kansas City in the divisional round. Quarterback Baker Mayfield rebounded from a concerning 2019 season and solidified himself as the franchise's long-term answer by throwing 31 touchdown passes (including playoffs) and displaying needed maturity and leadership. Running back Nick Chubb rushed for 1,067 yards and scored 12 TDs despite missing four games with a knee injury. Cleveland's offense carried the team despite losing star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to a season-ending knee injury in Week 7.
