Browns Accuse Eagles Of Taking ‘Cheap Shots’ At Deshaun Watson During Joint Practice

The Philadelphia Eagles and Cleveland Browns held a joint practice this week ahead of the team’s preseason matchup on Wednesday but one Browns’ player believes the Eagles took it too far during practice.

Joel Bitoni, the starting guard for the Cleveland Browns, accused the Philadelphia Eagles of taking cheap-shots at Deshuan Watson.

Biotin mentioned that Eagles defensive end Josh Sweat knocked the ball out of Watson’s hand on a would-be strip sack, nearly injuring Watson’s hand.

“You’re not supposed to that,” Bitonio said.


“I mean it’s just in our practice, you protect the quarterback,” Biotin said. “You don’t want to come close to the quarterback, you don’t want to take cheap shots, things like that where there might’ve been a couple of questionable plays both ways today.”

Meanwhile, Watson took to Twitter to call out an Eagles reporter who brought up Watson’s struggles agains the Eagles defense:

The Eagles and Browns will meet on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field.
