- According to the Cleveland Browns website, G John Greco has not fully recovered from Lisfranc surgery that ended his 2016 season early. Greco has been a versatile commodity along the Browns offensive line since 2012, starting games at tackle and center on top of his natural position, guard.
- In 2016, Greco graded as the 20th-best guard in the NFL with an overall grade of 81.5. He split his time between right guard (512 snaps) and center (234 snaps). Greco has ranked inside of the top 32 at his position each of the past five seasons including a career high 10th in 2014 (83.7 overall grade).
- In free agency this offseason. the Browns added two of 2016’s top interior linemen in guard Kevin Zeitler (87.1 overall grade) and center J.C. Tretter (84.1). Combined with Greco’s health concerns speculation has risen about his spot on the 53-man roster.
