The Browns had the only offense in the NFL that scored fewer points than the Giants in 2017. So, could Ben McAdoo be the one to help them?
McAdoo interviewed for the role of offensive coordinator with the Browns on Tuesday, according to multiple reports. McAdoo did that job successfully for two seasons with the Giants before he was promoted to head coach for the 2016 season. In his two seasons with that title, the Giants’ offense sputtered and never scored 30 or more points in a game.
The Browns have the first overall selection in this spring’s draft — one slot ahead of the Giants — and are expected to take a quarterback. McAdoo’s interview with Browns coach Hue Jackson is also intriguing, because Jackson was a candidate for the Giants job that went to McAdoo two seasons ago. Since then the Browns have won just one game.
McAdoo was fired by the Giants on Dec. 4.
BECKHAM SHARES VIDEO
Odell Beckham Jr. is working out and wants the world to know.
The Giants wide receiver who missed most of the season with a fractured ankle that required surgery posted a video on Twitter on Tuesday in which he lifts weights, does pushups, pushes a sled, and, naturally, dances. It’s one of the first glimpses that Beckham has provided of his preparations for the 2018 season.
Maybe he wants to show his likely future head coach, Pat Shurmur, what he’s up to.
TE Evan Engram and DT Dalvin Tomlinson were named to the All-Rookie team selected by the Pro Football Writers of America. The Giants were one of five teams with multiple players honored. The Saints had four, while the Giants, Steelers, Lions and Chiefs each had two. The Chiefs’ Kareem Hunt, who led the NFL in rushing, was named Rookie of the Year. Jets safety Jamal Adams also was honored.
