The Ravens disappointed last year but with Lamar Jackson healthy again, this division is shaping up to be a gauntlet. The AFC West and AFC North are the powerhouses of the league it looks like and Cleveland, with a win-now roster, positioned themselves to be ultra-competitive in it.

Amari Cooper will be a nice addition to the Browns offense to go along with the running back duo that they already have in place. The Browns will be without a first-round pick for the next three years but the anticipation is that their roster was already set, outside of the quarterback position.

They will now look for a place to trade Baker Mayfield who they used the number one pick on back in 2018. Earlier today, we looked at the odds for where he may end up.
