The Cleveland Browns were considering bringing former Ohio State wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. back to his hometown of Cleveland Ohio, but it seems that the veteran ultimately will be returning to Carolina. According to the Charlotte Observer and their sources, Ginn is headed back to the Panthers after his stint in Arizona with the Cards. Ted Ginn
I spent a good portion of my Sunday afternoon pacing in front of the television. You see, I’m in the finals in all three of my fantasy football leagues and an entire season of minor tweaks and a boat load of luck got me to where I am. But you also see that given the
The Cleveland Browns faced off against the Panthers in a game that was made even more meaningless with the official elimination of the Browns from the NFL playoffs. The Chargers won a game on Saturday that officially did the Browns in and seeing if Johnny Manziel could do better than his debut wasn’t nearly enough
Johnny Manziel was running left when he met two Carolina Panthers defenders near the sidelines. He lowered his shoulder to meet one of the defenders and the other landed on the back of his legs. It was tough to see what the injury was, which is better than having it obvious. Regardless, Johnny Manziel moved
I never root for injuries in the NFL, but they are one thing in the game you can certainly bet on. You don’t tend to bet on them occurring via car crashes though, and that’s what happened to Cam Newton this week. It was an ugly crash and the result was a couple of fractures

Last season, Rob Chudzinski was the offensive coordinator for the lowly Carolina Panthers. Although they had an exciting young quarterback in Cam Newton, he’s already been called out by veteran receiver Steve Smith. This time, it was running back DeAngelo Williams’ turn in line to call out Chud. In an article Tuesday afternoon from David
Every week in the NFL beat writers for every team are included in a conference call with the opposing team’s coach and one of their players. The Carolina Panthers play the Seattle Seahawks opening weekend, and veteran wide receiver Steve Smith was the Panther selected to answer questions from the Seattle media. Some of his
Pro Football Talk notes reports from both Vikings and Panthers camps that officials have specifically mentioned ball-spinning as celebrations that could draw 15-yard flags this season. In instances like this, the NFL isn’t necessarily creating new rules as much as it is making a point about enforcement or interpretation of existing rules. In a lot
Nobody in Cleveland has forgotten the Peyton Hillis Madden cover vote just yet. In the end, it came down to Hillis and Mike Vick, and I don’t know if Vick is wiping his brow for having avoided the curse just yet either, as he took a pay cut this year to stay with the Chip
James Dockery was one of the final cuts for the Browns this season as he was presumably beaten out by guys like Trevin Wade, Johnson Bademosi and Tashaun Gipson. It took a little while, but “Dock” has been picked up off of waivers by the Carolina Panthers to take Jon Beason’s roster spot, who was
Veteran journalist Mark Leonard is back to discuss the upcoming NFL draft. You can find the Mark’s other guest pieces here and here. Mark is a Lorain native who loves writing about his favorite teams. What would the Cleveland Browns end up doing at six if the Carolina Panthers actually chose to do what would
The Browns will begin next season with new voices leading all three phases of the game. Whoever is selected as OC will implement Pat Shurmur’s offense. Dick Jauron will bring his own set of calls and schemes to the defense, and Brad Seely will have to be replaced as special teams coach. Sure, the Browns
This is the first of a two-part segment on the 2011 NFL Draft: This first edition analyzes the current draft forecast and matches up general options at the No. 6 pick to the current Browns roster.
