It is Tuesday, March 22, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns are still working on the 2022 roster.
They are interested in several players and will continue this process up through the 2022 NFL Draft at the end of April.
Here is the Tuesday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. Garrett At Cavs Game
Myles Garrett was not on the court this time.
Instead, he was a spectator at the Los Angeles Lakers and Cleveland Cavaliers game last night and made an appearance on the Jumbotron.
He continues to be a fan-favorite and very supportive of the city and its other sports teams.

It comes as no surprise that he may have gotten the loudest cheer of the night.

2. Clarification On The Parameters Of The Watson Trade
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported yesterday that the terms of the Deshaun Watson trade had been slightly altered.
This now includes an additional 2022 4th-round pick that was not included in the initial trade agreement between the Browns and Texans. https://t.co/pw8LHmRVIL

The change involves the Browns giving the Texans an additional draft pick, a fourth-round pick, No. 107 overall, in the 2022 NFL Draft.
To recap, the Texans are getting the following:
- 2022 NFL Draft, Round 1 selection, No. 13 overall
- 2022 NFL Draft, Round 4 selection, No. 107 overall
- 2023 NFL Draft, Round 1 selection
- 2023 NFL Draft, Round 3 selection
- 2024 NFL Draft, Round 1 selection
- 2024 NFL Draft, Round 4 selection
In addition to Watson, the Browns pick up a sixth-round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft which was previously reported to be a fifth-round pick.
The Browns did not communicate the change; their original social media post announcing the trade on Sunday has the previous arrangement of five picks from the Browns in exchange for Watson and the now incorrect 2024 fifth-round pick.

There has been no explanation as to what prompted this change.
