Browns announce they’ve released OL Paul McQuistan

Opening Day Browns

The Cleveland Browns are starting to make small moves in shaping their roster and cap for next season. Despite the fact that they have tons and tons of space available, they’re apparently not about to inefficiently spend on guys they don’t feel can produce at a high enough level. Paul McQuistan was dismissed in what

LeBron James Family Foundation

LeBron James is nearly undisputed as the greatest player in the game, and now he’s making himself even more powerful. According to (who else?) Adrian Wojnarowski, LeBron James has been elected as the Vice President of the NBA player’s union under Chris Paul, who serves as the President. Paul had been pushing James to join

The Seahawks might target Jordan Cameron

Jordan Cameron Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns have already said they won’t be as active in free agency this year as they were last year. That makes some sense because you can’t be as active as the Browns were a year ago every single season. What’s usually not included in that free agency equation is the re-signing of a

Jimmy Haslam says he felt sucker-punched by La Canfora report

Jimmy Haslam reacts to a question about the Pilot Flying J situation.

The scariest part about all the bad press the Browns have gotten recently might just be with relation to Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam. In my first round of writing about the Browns with Randy Lerner at the helm, that always felt like the biggest, un-jump-able hurdle that the team faced. My thought process always

Feeling good about sports, live music, bullying the bullies and more… While We’re Waiting

David Richard/USA TODAY Sports

It’s February, the Cavs are headed to the All-Star break, the Indians aren’t yet reported to Goodyear, and I just don’t have a lot of sports takes. But I do have things to discuss on this Friday the 13th. Thanks for sticking with us through a relatively quiet time in sports. Farewell to Joe Lull…

I’m not going to debate Wahoo again this season

From the @dechief twitter page

I recently saw someone on Twitter quip that it’s about that time of year where we get all hot and bothered about Chief Wahoo and whether he is racist or not or stays or goes. It is that time of year, no doubt—Wahoo debates tend to go into hibernation once the season comes to a

Where is the Browns stock one year since Banner

(Joshua Gunter/ The Plain Dealer)

It’s been one year since the Cleveland Browns became what they are today. One year since we found out the future of the Browns didn’t include Joe Banner or Michael Lombardi. It’s easy to lose perspective on a situation when you’re so deep in the muck of the details on a day-to-day basis. And even

Kyle Shanahan saying all the right things—now that he’s gone

Dallas Cowboys v Washington Redskins

I don’t know if we’ll ever confirm that Kyle Shanahan lit a match before departing Cleveland, but I think it’s a pretty safe bet. Now that he’s arrived in Atlanta, he’s not saying anything controversial at all. He’s at a safe distance from the fire he helped build in Cleveland, so I guess he gets

Jamal Lewis sells Super Bowl ring for over $50k

Jamal Lewis filed for bankruptcy in 2012 and thus culminated a strange offbeat news cycle involving the former Browns and Ravens running back. In April 2010 we started to hear about Jamal Lewis’ financial issues, including a 2008 civil judgment against Lewis and some other defendants. At that time, it appeared that some of the

I will never complain about a Corey Kluber extension

Corey Kluber Cleveland Indians

This is me talking to myself. I have to talk to myself sometimes when it comes to sports because otherwise you forget about foresight and only look at hindsight and then you hate yourself for being so stupid and not being able to see the future. That’s why I treat myself so harshly with regard to

Two Indians mentioned as Grantland’s worst contracts

Swisher Best 140711

It’s what all the Cleveland Indians defenders say when anyone wants to talk about how cheap the Dolans are, and they’re not wrong. Free agency is a completely inefficient way to build a baseball team. Jonah Keri and Grantland are at it again in 2015 analyzing what good and bad value look like. It works
