It was the second annual NFL Players Association report card. The purpose was to highlight both the positives and identify areas that need improvement.

The Browns received no F grades but got four D grades.

They got a D+ for the locker room, a D for both the weight room and the team’s travel, and a D- grade for the treatment of families.

Cleveland ranks 30th out of 32 teams for weight room.

The report card highlighted two issues identified as problems that stayed steady from last year, the weight room and locker room.

“The team needs an actual weight room. Since 2020, the weight room has been situated in the indoor practice field. The problem is compounded because the weight room takes up 15-20 yards of the already small indoor practice field,” the NFLPA said.

The second issue was the size of the team’s locker room.

“It ranks as one of the smallest in the league, and players feel like they don’t have an adequate amount of personal space to simply get changed,” the NFLPA stated.

They got a B+ grade when it came to their strength coach, a B- grade with their head coach, and ownership got a B grade.
