Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield didn’t have much

to say about the possibility of his Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley following him to Cleveland , but he was more forthcoming about the move the Browns made to open up the head coaching position.Mayfield called the firings of head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley his “welcome to the business moment.” He also said “bring it on” when asked about the challenge of steering the team through choppy waters and added that “my leadership, my presence and making sure that guys stay focused is more important now than ever.”“It is one of those things that you can handle it as a distraction or you can use it to come together as a team,” Mayfield said. “This locker room can become a lot tighter. With all the distractions, we will see what kind of men we have in this room 鈥?not what kind of team that we have but what kind of men can handle a distraction the right way — can come together and focus on doing their job and doing it at a high level against a great team coming Sunday.”The Chiefs are going to be a tough opponent regardless of how well the Browns focus their energies on the task at hand, which may be why Mayfield added that the upheaval on the coaching staff can’t be used as an excuse for coming up short.Browns “fluid” situation along the offensive line a problem? The Cleveland Browns have been full of surprises during the preseason , and the one of the biggest may be looming on the horizon.After spending all of training camp and the preseason working to solidify the left side of the offensive line, head coach Hue Jackson said the team is still looking at all its options, according to it is a bit disconcerting that the left side of the line is not established with the regular season just a week away, it is good to know that Jackson will stick to whatever decision he makes. Because Browns fans know that Jackson never changes his mind.Let’s review how the Browns have reached this stage:Starting left tackle Joe Thomas, who missed the final nine games of the 2017 season with an injury Youth Emmanuel Ogbah Jersey , retired in March.The Browns selected Austin Corbett with the first pick of the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Corbett played four years at Nevada as a left tackle.The Browns open training camp with Shon Coleman as the starting left tackle, but that plan quickly goes south.At the end of July, offensive line coach Bob Wylie says the idea of moving starting left guard Joel Bitonio to left tackle is “Plan Z.”A few days later, Jackson moves Bitonio to left tackle, a position he has not played since college Youth Larry Ogunjobi Jersey , and installs Corbett at left guard, a position he never played.Corbett played the entire preseason at guard.While Bitonio worked with the first team, the Browns also worked in other players at left tackle, including undrafted free agent Desmond Harrison.On Friday, the Browns traded Coleman to the San Francisco 49ers for a seventh-round draft pick.Which brings us to today Youth Duke Johnson Jr Jersey , with Jackson considering moving Bitonio back to left guard; moving Corbett to center, a position he has not played and is currently manned quite competently by J.C. Tretter; and toying with the idea of naming Harrison the starting left tackle.It is all part of the master plan, as Jackson explained via only thing that is safe to say at the moment is that the Browns are positive they will have five offensive linemen on the field when they open the season against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 9.Just who those five players will be remains a bit of a mystery.
