It is Sunday, August 14, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns are preparing for the Philadelphia Eagles preseason game happening a week from today.
The Browns have open practices scheduled for today (Sunday), Monday, and Tuesday so Berea will once again be filled with crazed Browns fans.
Here is the Sunday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.
1. Tretter Watch
With C Nick Harris likely needing season-ending surgery, the question becomes who will be the Browns’ center for the 2022 season.
Free agent and former Browns C J.C. Tretter is the obvious choice to rejoin his former team, but there is no official word that any discussions have happened.
Highest-graded #Browns in the 2021 season (min. 425 snaps):
1️⃣ Joel Bitonio, OG- 93.6
2️⃣ Myles Garrett, EDGE- 92.0
3️⃣ Wyatt Teller, OG- 84.4
4️⃣ Nick Chubb, RB- 81.7
5️⃣ J.C. Tretter, C- 79.4 pic.twitter.com/XgS3x9XTVC

Ethan Pocic is the backup who came in for Harris in the Jacksonville game.
Pocic will get first-team reps this week and perhaps a full evaluation of him will need to occur before the team decides its next move.
I’m told the #Browns are not 100% sure what they’ll do regarding the center position. While the team did sign Ethan Pocic, the team could also consider outside options.

Rookie Dawson Deaton could step into the backup role if Pocic becomes the starter.

3. New Episode Of Building The Browns Drops Today
At 11:30 AM EDT, Episode 6 of the acclaimed docuseries Building The Browns drops.

Admittedly, the docuseries has not been as riveting yet this season as in other years so hopefully this episode changes that.
