It has been a rough few years for the Cleveland Browns, to say the least, with the franchise going through some drastic changes, especially at the quarterback position by parting ways with Baker Mayfield and bringing in Deshaun Watson.
Last season was forgettable as the team adjusted from Mayfield to Watson as the franchise finished with a record of 7-10, but next season Cleveland has a chance to turn things around.
There’s no doubting the talent in Cleveland as they have game-changing players on both sides of the football, from Watson to Amari Cooper to Nick Chubb on offense to Myles Garrett and Denzel Ward on defense.
Although the Browns haven’t gotten a lot of buzz during the NFL offseason, strong safety Rodney McLeod believes Cleveland will be a team to fear next season, as he made clear on NFL Network via Cleveland Browns Twitter account.
"Man, I'm telling you. Watch out."

One of the best parts of the NFL is the fact that any team can contend from year to year with subtle to drastic changes to its roster.
The Browns made a bold move to acquire Watson and take on all the off-the-field baggage he brought with him.
Although Watson didn’t look good in his short time under center last season, the 2023 campaign could be completely different, with the team starting fresh and their superstar quarterback having more time to get back to form in order to lead this franchise moving forward.
Only time will tell if Cleveland can turn things around in 2023 and live up to McLeod’s hype.NEXT: The Browns Are Asking Fans For Help In Logo Selection
