Amid Benching Rumors, Browns’ $60 million star sends a message.

Jack Conklin has had a rough run of injuries but the Cleveland Browns veteran right tackle is ready to return.

Conklin took to social media with a rare message that gave insight into his situation.

He also channeled his teammate, Nick Chubb, who is also returning from a season-ending knee injury.

“Conklin sustained a torn ACL and MCL in Week 1 last season, knocking him out for the year.

Conklin signed a four-year extension with the Browns at the end of the 2022 season, linking him to Cleveland through 2026.

Former first-round pick Jedrick Wills, second-year big man Dawand Jones and Conklin will compete for the starting spots.

Although his consistency has left something to be desired, the Browns have praised Wills for his growth.

But he played well.
“Jones filled in for Conklin after his injury and made a strong case to be the permenant starter.

There’s a chance that Conklin could lose his starting spot to Jones when the season opens.

I think Jed Wills Jr. will start the season at left tackle, and Dawand Jones will start on the right side in part because I think Jack Conklin will need a little more time to recover from his torn ACL and MCL,” Cabot said on June 22.

“Conklin counts $10 million against the cap this year but nearly $20 million for the next two seasons.

If the Browns feel like they have a surefire option in Jones, Conklin could potentially be a trade piece.
