Cleveland Browns rank 21st in NFLPA team facility experience survey

The Cleveland Browns' ranked 21st out of 32 teams in a new report card of the daily experience at teams' facilities.

CLEVELAND — Following a disappointing 7-10 record in 2022, the Cleveland Browns enter the 2023 offseason looking to improve their roster.

As it turns out, those might not be the only upgrades the Browns need to make.

On Wednesday, the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) released its first report cards of the daily experience at all 32 teams' facilities. Based on surveys conducted with 1,300 players across the league, Cleveland ranked 21st out of 32 teams overall, with grades in the following categories (league ranking in parenthesis):

  • Treatment of families: C (21st)
  • Food service/nutrition: D+ (T-18th)
  • Weight room: D+ (T-29th)
  • Strength coaches: A+ (T-1st)
  • Training room: B+ (T-5th)
  • Training staff: A (T-9th)
  • Locker room: D+ (T-22nd)
  • Team travel: C (T-21st)

The survey noted that Browns players' chief complaint was regarding the team's weight room, which "currently takes up about 15-20 yards of their indoor practice facility, which the players stated was already small." Additionally, the team's locker room is believed to be one of the smallest in the league, "resulting in many players feeling like they do not have enough personal space."

On the plus side, Cleveland's players gave high marks to the team's strength coaches, as well as its training staff.

"The players think very highly of their strength coaches and believe they significantly add to their individual success," the survey notes, a sentiment that was echoed regarding the training staff.

Additionally, according to the survey, 100 percent of players believe that Browns owner Jimmy Haslam "is willing to invest money into improving the facility."
