It is Monday, March 7, 2022, and Cleveland Browns fans continue to wait and wonder what the 2022 roster will look like.
Virtually every possible free agent or draft pick has been reported to be of interest which is typical for this time of year.
We will know soon enough.
In the meantime, here is the Monday edition of the Browns Nation news and notes.
1. NFL TV Commentator Shuffle
For all of the talk surrounding the changes to the NFL teams, this offseason could also produce an unprecedented switch to the commentating partnerships and lineups on each station that covers the NFL.
With Amazon taking over Thursday Night Football in 2022, speculation has been at a fever pitch for weeks wondering who the announcing team will be.
This morning, we are learning who we believe will be the lynchpin of the Amazon team.
Kirk Herbstreit is a familiar face on ESPN covering college football and reportedly will continue to do that in addition to adding Thursday Night Football to his responsibilities.

Broadcasting legend Al Michaels is expected to figure into some network’s plans, but we do not know which one just yet.

2. Could A Buckeye Be Drafted In The First Round?
The Browns pick at number 13 has lately been rumored to go to an Ohio State Buckeye.
He is wide receiver Garrett Wilson.
Wilson went to the same high school as Baker Mayfield, Lake Travis High School, so he has both the Ohio ties and the Mayfield connection.
Browns fans would welcome him with open arms.
Ohio State WR Garrett Wilson said he would love to link back up with “his guy” Baker Mayfield.
The two attended Lake Travis High School and have thrown together in the past.

How the team handles the mid-March free agency period will give us an idea of what to expect in late April when the draft rolls around.
Happy Monday Browns Fans!
