5 Browns players feeling the pressure
With two NFL Drafts and two free-agency periods under his belt, Farmer has built up the team’s depth and given Pettine and his coaches a solid foundation to work with. In turn, Pettine has shown that he is not afraid to put the best players on the field – regardless of where they were drafted or how much they count against the salary cap. One has to only look as far as undrafted free agent K’Waun Williams receiving considerable playing time last season at the expense of Justin Gilbert, only the eight overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Competition not only makes the team better, but also means that some familiar faces may not take the field this fall wearing the team’s new uniforms.
