The Cleveland Browns ranked 23rd in the team rankings this year. The two major issues players identified as problems this year have stayed steady from last year. First, the team needs an actual weight room. Since 2020, the weight room has been situated in the indoor practice field. The problem is compounded because the weight room takes up 15-20 yards of the already small indoor practice field. The second issue is the size of their locker room. It ranks as one of the smallest in the league, and players feel like they don’t have an adequate amount of personal space to simply get changed. The category grades for the Browns reflect the sentiments of the players: that the club is doing just enough to create a passable experience for the players with below average standards, but not doing nearly enough to create a high-quality workplace environment.
