It is Memorial Day in the United States, and Cleveland Browns fans and Americans commemorate our fallen soldiers who paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we are privileged to have.

Here is the Memorial Day edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. Browns Have No Plans To Cut Mayfield
Before we get into the latest Mayfield news, we need to acknowledge Twitter user JAYAL’s accurate assessment of the Browns’ offseason.
Check it out.
I literally think the Cleveland Browns have been trending everyday since the season ended. 😂💯🔥 #Browns

According to Mary Kay Cabot, there appears to be no change on the horizon for the Browns or Mayfield.
Her sources indicate that Mayfield will remain on the roster through training camp if a trade does not happen prior to that.
Mayfield has not attended any offseason workouts to date.
All have been voluntary, and he is rehabbing his shoulder.
The first mandatory team event is minicamp running from June 14 to June 16.
Mayfield will be fined $95,000 if he does not show up for the three-day minicamp.

2. Browns Content With Current WR Roster
Besides acquiring Amari Cooper, the Browns are going into the summer with an inexperienced wide receivers room.
Jakeem Grant is a potential WR option though his first priority is special teams.
A lot of chatter has surrounded Fuller for weeks because of his chemistry with Watson.
Will be interesting to see if the #Browns can snag free agent WR Will Fuller, who already has chemistry with Deshaun Watson as well- his former teammate between 2017-2020. Just a thought.

Mary Kay Cabot reports that the Browns are happy to remain with the status quo on wide receivers and are not in pursuit of either Fuller or Hilton at this point.
3. OTAs Resume Tuesday
The second round of Browns OTAs begins tomorrow.
They run from May 31 through June 2.
Though still voluntary, we could expect to see newly extended tight end David Njoku and potentially others participate though they did not attend the first round.
Happy Memorial Day Monday Browns fans!
