The Cleveland Browns are still getting their roster set as of Saturday, accounting for injuries and waivers to really set their final 53-man roster in place.
They've got a matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday to open up their season, and at least one thing is finalized: the team captains.
Mary Kay Cabot took to Twitter to announce that left tackle Joe Thomas, linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and kicker Phil Dawson will be the three main team captains this season.
On top of that, she reports that a fourth game captain will be named each week. The captains make sense, as Thomas is one of the best offensive tackles in the game and a truly elite guy to hold down that left side.
He's a leader and is the model of consistency, while Jackson works harder than anybody else in the locker room.
Dawson has always been a solid kicker and the Browns have a pretty good group of captains at this point.
We'll see if any of the prominent rookies make it to be a captain during the season.
