During this Monday’s episode of Get Up on ESPN, the NFL crew revealed who they believe will win the AFC North this upcoming season. Mike Greenberg may have surprised the viewers at home with his selection.
Greenberg made it abundantly clear that he’s all in on the Cleveland Browns this year. Not only are the Browns coming off an 11-5 season that includes a playoff win over the Steelers, they have added reinforcements to a roster that was already very skilled.
As a matter of fact, Greenberg believes Cleveland has the best roster in the AFC.
“If you took the names off the fronts of the jerseys and only paid attention to the names on the backs of the jerseys, there would be not doubt the Cleveland Browns have – and I will say this right at your face, Domonique Foxworth – the most talent of any team in the AFC,” Greenberg said. “The most talent of any team in the AFC, and that includes the Kansas City Chiefs.”
“The Cleveland Browns have the most talent of any team in the AFC. … And that includes the Kansas City Chiefs!”

Greenberg’s take on Monday’s episode of Get Up shouldn’t be viewed as outlandish. Marcus Spears actually said something similar earlier this year about Cleveland’s roster.
“Look, I got [the Browns] as dark-horse Super Bowl contenders, and we’re talking about the Chiefs potentially going 20-0,” Spears said. “On paper, right now in the NFL on the AFC side, the Cleveland Browns have the best roster.”
The Browns have a plethora of playmakers on their roster, such as Odell Beckham Jr., Nick Chubb, Myles Garrett, Austin Hooper, Baker Mayfield, Jarvis Landry and Denzel Ward.
Now, Cleveland’s roster will have to prove that it can handle high expectations.
