Browns coach Freddie Kitchens claims team isn’t done filling out the roster
Although the Cleveland Browns have generated plenty of hype with the influx of star power to their roster in recent years, head coach Freddie Kitchens has made it clear that there is still plenty of work to do.
The Browns were clicking on all cylinders in their impressive win over the Washington Redskins in the preseason opener. According to Jeff Risdon of the Browns Wire, Kitchens indicated that the current players could potentially be competing with some new faces over the next few weeks:
“I don’t know if you guys believe me or not, but our roster isn’t filled out yet,’’ Kitchens declared on Friday. “We’re continuing to search for guys at all positions. Wide receiver is no different.’’
Kitchens’ comments should hardly come as any surprise since he has not been shy about his lack of patience some of the shortcomings that have occurred during training camp.
Cleveland further solidified that notion with the recent signing of offensive tackle Travis Vornkahl and defensive tackle Brandin Bryant. While they are hardly household names, it does show the other players on the roster that the Browns’ brass is still keeping an eye out for pieces that can help put them over the top in the 2019 NFL season.
The preseason is meant for most teams to shore up as much quality depth as they can to help cover the glaring voids on their roster. Regardless, all eyes will be on what Kitchens is able to do with the newfound star power in Cleveland.
