CLEVELAND (WJW) — In a bittersweet moment, Cleveland Browns players spoke to media Monday morning about their season finale win yesterday against the Bengals and looking back at the ups and downs of the 2021 season.

G Wyatt Teller candidly said they didn’t live up to hype and that they under achieved, considering how they finished last year. “Finish it,” he said.

“I’m still proud to call Cleveland home,” Teller said.

“Work is a good thing,” Teller said. “Vacation would be nice, but work is a good thing.”

LB Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah’s biggest lesson he learned in his rookie year was not about being the best player, but it’s more about the team coming together and playing as a unit. “The brotherhood really matters,” he said.

G Joel Bitonio said while they can always improve in the area of unity, everyone is on the same page. “We all want to win.”
