NFL Network host says the Cleveland Browns will upset the Pittsburgh Steelers

Woodrum was waived by the Ravens, who are getting Joe Flacco back after Flacco missed the entire preseason with a back injury.

Cleveland is coming off its worst season (1-15) in franchise history.

Jackson's odds of staying dry look more promising. When a team pushes draft picks into future draft picks, when it year after year releases veterans and when it pushes salary-cap room forward, the implication is development takes precedence.

That is everyone's concern but I think the biggest thing for me is not me being concerned about it. You don't want to get beat by Pittsburgh when you're here.

The Steelers re-signed Johnson last season because they liked his in-line blocking ability and his versatility as an H-back. You've got to make sure you wrap up and make sure to try to get the ball out. Eli Rogers, who is really the team's starting slot receiver, is listed as Brown's backup at No. 1 receiver.

Jackson knows what's ahead for a rookie QB, and he's planning to stick with Kizer through thick and thin. "I think we are taking a look-see at a guy". "It doesn't matter about the crowd, you kind of have to block that out and just worry about your assignment and that's going to get Ben and putting down Le'Veon (Bell)". Let that numbing number sink in for a minute, and it's easy to understand the Browns' current state.

Coates had virtually all of his production last season in the first five games.

Kizer, 21, has shown polish on and off the field.

For the first time in a long time, a Browns team enters a season with a legitimate plan in place by the front office to get better.

"I played in this similar scheme twice before", Haden said. The Patriots torched Pittsburgh through the air in the AFC championship game past year. Burns will see a lot of balls thrown his way with Haden matched up on the opponent's number one receiver, but he's capable of holding his own.

On the ground, Matthew Dayes rushed for 31 yards in 10 receptions while Terrence Mgge added 13 yards in 12 carries. Cleveland is counting on second-year receiver Corey Coleman to make a big jump. He's facing a defense that loves to punish quarterbacks, especially rookies.

The Steelers also cut tight end David Johnson.

A jack-of-all trades at MI, rookie Jabrill Peppers will likely wear several hats for the Browns. With everyone else gone, Peppers is the undisputed return specialist. Our offensive line is great and will continue to get better.

Poor Joe Thomas. Well, maybe not poor Joe because he'll make $11.5 million this season. But most of the time someone else has to tell a player his career is over. The fifth-year man out of Georgia Southern isn't exactly known for his coverage skills, but Wilcox is a heavy hitter and could contribute as a "moneybacker" in four wide receiver sets.

Thomas wants to be part of Cleveland's turnaround, but he's running out of time.
