Could the Browns trade up to No. 2 for Marcus Mariota?

Marcus Mariota

The Tennessee Titans are—believe it or not—a bigger mess than the Cleveland Browns. They also have a young quarterback who they feel could potentially be the future of the team, leading at least one NFL writer, CBS’ Jason La Canfora, to believe that while Oregon’s Marcus Mariota will go second overall in the upcoming NFL Draft,


LeBron James leads NBA in shoe sales for 2014

LeBron James LeBron 12

Whether in the bright lights of Miami or more industrial feel of Cleveland, one thing remains consistent: Lebron James’ shoe continues to dominate the rest of the NBA in terms of sales. For the second consecutive year, James has had the NBA’s best selling shoe, according to SportScanInfo. James’ signature shoe, led by Nike’s LeBron


Cleveland Browns sign wide receiver Dwayne Bowe

Andrew Weber/USA TODAY Sports

In a crowded pool this NFL free agency season, the Browns had yet to make a splash entering this week. The Browns expressed interested in wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who visited the team over the weekend. On Thursday afternoon, news broke that the Browns were to sign Bowe, the eight-year receiver, to a two-year deal. Sploosh! Ian


Charlie Lee-led Vikings buck Broncos in CIT first round

Charlie Lee

He missed the first six games of the season. He missed playing at Louisville. He missed out on the Horizon League championship, in both the regular season and conference tournament. He missed out on the NCAA Tournament. He missed out on a lot of things this year. But Cleveland State senior Charlie Lee wasn’t ready to call


Steph Curry would vote LeBron MVP (after himself)

LeBron James Stephen Curry

With the regular season rolling down the home stretch, the MVP race is heating up. There are five legitimate candidates currently in the race for the most valuable player – Stephen Curry, Anthony Davis, James Harden, LeBron James, and Russell Westbrook. In an interview with “The Dan Patrick Show” on Tuesday, Curry said that he would vote to


Co-eds, porn stars, and the battle for Braxton Miller

Braxton Miller

Most of the talk about Braxton Miller since the Ohio State Buckeyes football team won the National Championship has been where he will transfer for the 2015 season. The reason that it has been so widely assumed that Braxton would transfer is that the Buckeyes have three potential Heisman finalists on their roster, but only Miller


Alonzo Mourning questions LeBron leaving Miami

alonzo and lebron

Last Thursday, WFNY’s Craig Lyndall covered Pat Riley’s shock regarding LeBron leaving the Miami Heat, as Riley somehow thought it prudent to compare it to if Magic Johnson would have left the Los Angeles Lakers. This week, former Miami Heat great Alonzo Mourning decided to take time out of his busy schedule in Austin, Texas for South by


LeBron James’ Miami home still on market, price dropping

As WFNY’s Scott Sargent noted back in October, LeBron James put his Coconut Grove, Florida house on the market for what he believed a fair market value of $17 million. Unfortunately, the multi-million dollar mansion market must not be booming in South Florida as the house remains on the market four months later. LeBron did not seem


Dethroned: LeBron knocked from the top spot in Bill Simmons’ trade value column

LeBron James Cleveland Cavaliers

It was bound to happen. LeBron James would start to make too much money, have too much uncertainty surrounding his future, and—gulp—was bound to age beyond a point where his trade value would start to take a hit. Be that as it may, after eight years of having a firm, kung-fu grip on the top


Feels like the first time: Nick Swisher runs the bases

The Governor of Brohio may not be ready to start on Opening Day, but he’s getting closer to returning to full action. Nick Swisher ran the bases for the first time this spring training season Tuesday. The Plain Dealer‘s Paul Hoynes reported Swish’s latest progress in Arizona, and said that running the bases is among the last steps

The Indianapolis Colts cut bait with Trent Richardson and now we know where T-Rich will attempt to do his Marshawn Lynch impression. The Oakland Raiders announced the signing on their Twitter page. The Raiders have signed free agent RB Trent Richardson. #WelcomeToTheFamily — OAKLAND RAIDERS (@RAIDERS) March 17, 2015 I won’t be actively rooting


Browns reportedly offered No. 19 pick for Sam Bradford

Phillip Taylor,  Sam Bradford, Harvey Dahl

In the end it really doesn’t matter what the Browns tried to do. This pertains to Larry Fitzgerald and also Sam Bradford. The information about what they’ve attempted to do is interesting in many ways, but it’s not proof of anything, nor does it give the Browns a pass if and when they fail. I’m


Kyrie Irving makes Zach Lowe’s Marc Gasol All-Stars

It’s a far cry from Dion Waiters being named preseason co-captain of the Triangle All-Stars―read that again and tell me it wasn’t prescient―but another Cavalier is getting some recognition on a Grantland All-Star team. Kyrie Irving is the latest to receive such an honor, as he was named to WFNY favorite Zach Lowe’s Marc Gasol All-Stars, the


CSU to play Western Michigan in CIT

Their loss to Valparaiso in the Horizon League conference tournament semi-finals took them out of the running for the NCAA Tournament, and their resume wasn’t sparkly enough to warrant an invitation to the NIT, but the Cleveland State Vikings (18-14, 11-5 Horizon League) are not done playing basketball yet this season. For the second year


Carlos Carrasco is a popular breakout candidate for Indians

Carlos Carrasco

The Cleveland Indians starting rotation has been a popular topic for the sporting world as they prepare for the 2015 MLB season. Corey Kluber winning the Cy Young has been referenced by nearly everyone writing a breakout candidate column and Danny Salazar has already been named a sleeper Cy Young candidate for this season despite


Don’t trust the computers on Ohio State in the NCAA tournament: WFNY Stats & Info

I can’t ever recall a dichotomy quite like this. The base support for this year’s Ohio State men’s basketball team has been lukewarm at best. A team some thought to be a top-20 contender languished for most of the season, stumbled into the NCAA tournament, and landed a No. 10 spot opposite 7-seed Virginia Commonwealth.


The Onion pokes fun at the Browns

Ray Farmer

It’s only satire, but things sometimes hit the hardest when they ring the most true. The Onion, the parody publication that bills itself as “America’s Finest News Source,” has joined much of the commenting world in having some fun at the Cleveland Browns’ expense. A story went up on The Onion‘s website Monday with the headline “NFLPA Received

Bill Simmons admits to his irrational and completely inaccurate beliefs regarding Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving Cleveland Cavaliers LeBron James San Antonio Spurs

When we last left Grantland’s Editor in Chief Bill Simmons, he was driving the Kyrie Irving Irrational Hate bus, attempting to pick up guests who would believe his biased and otherwise incredulous beliefs surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard. Something about a scoring mentality. Something about not making teammates better. Something about his contract extension.
