Trent-Knows-Tee-compressor

The tale of Trent Richardson gets stranger by the day. No, I’m not talking about him getting traded or his continual disappointment between the lines on an NFL field.

John DeFelippo Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns don’t have a quarterback firmly atop their depth chart right now. Brian Hoyer is a free agent, Johnny Manziel hasn’t proven worthy, and Connor Shaw projects as a Brian Hoyer sequel at best.

Can the Browns afford to keep working with Josh Gordon?

Josh Gordon Cleveland Browns

It seems Josh Gordon won’t be content until he’s out of the NFL. Maybe “content” isn’t the right word as it appears that maybe Josh Gordon is perfectly content with his lot in life as a screw-up. But is he a screw-up or is he an addict and are those two terms mutually exclusive? This
