The Cleveland Browns’ talent balance sheet is growing redder by the day. Defensive end/linebacker Jabaal Sheard is the latest player to leave Cleveland, having signed a two-year contract with the New England Patriots that could be worth up to $11 million, and which includes $5.5 million guaranteed. This signing, along with most every piece of
Over the next many weeks, I will be reviewing and discussing the performance of the 2014 Cleveland Browns position by position. It was a tough season for the Cleveland Browns, falling in five straight games to end the season at 7-9. The team showed some glimpses of promise and some other areas of concern. So
The Cleveland Browns were blown out this week in the home finale versus in-state rival Cincinnati Bengals, 30-0. The team was completely outplayed by the Bengals in all phases of the game. The offense was shutdown, unable to score and even move the ball. But the real surprise was the fall of the Browns’ defense.
The Browns will most likely be without two of their best players for this Sunday’s game versus the Atlanta Falcons. Tight end Jordan Cameron has been ruled out for Sunday, while linebacker Karlos Dansby is doubtful to play and linebacker Jabaal Sheard is listed as questionable. Cameron has been out with a concussion since getting hit
The Cleveland Browns used to be deep on defense. Remember that? They had more defensive linemen than they knew what to do with. Now, the Browns are down two more key defensive players at least for a little while as Karlos Dansby and Jabaal Sheard are the latest names to adorn the Browns’ injury list
While the Cleveland Browns lost the game on Sunday, they also suffered several major injuries on defense. One of the most notable losses was linebacker Karlos Dansby, who left the game early with a knee issue and whose long-term status remains unclear Dansby, 33, is one of the team’s emotional leaders and is the leading
The Cleveland Browns are in first place after beating the Cincinnati Bengals on national television last Thursday. The Browns completely dominated the Bengals, beating them 24-3. Their defense played in what may have very well been their best game of the season, forcing four Cincinnati turnovers. The unit was able to hold the Bengals’ offense
The Cleveland Browns won their second straight game and are now 5-3 on the season. The team played a tight game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and pulled out a 22-17 wins on Sunday. It was another close game at the end with a lot of big plays by the Browns. On defense, the Browns forced two
The Cleveland Browns are 4-3 on the year after beating the Oakland Raiders 23-13 on Sunday. The game was a close match throughout with the Browns able to push away in the fourth quarter. The Browns have struggled on offense over the past few weeks, but in the wake of these struggles the Browns defense has
My dreams of watching the Browns face Charlie Whitehurst again, are apparently not going to come true.
The first quarter of the NFL season is behind us so it’s a natural point to stop and take a look at the Cleveland Browns and see Ray Farmer and Mike Pettine’s portfolio of players to see whose stock is rising and whose is falling. We’ll start with the guys you can send your buddies texts, emails, and
Many areas to be fixed over the course of one bye week.
Joe Haden’s poor start to the season isn’t all on him.
The Cleveland Browns start training camp in little over a week. They have had a big offseason full of big-name additions and huge stories. One of the positions that the Browns addressed during the offseason once again was linebacker. The weakest part of this group last season was the inside linebackers. So, the Browns knew they
As the Cleveland Browns inch toward the completion of minicamp, they have officially signed third-round running back Terrance West to a four-year, $2.796 million contract, including a $527,400 signing bonus. The 5-foot-9, 230-pound bowling ball of a running back was the 94th overall selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. He rushed for 2,509 yards and 42 touchdowns last season
Last week the NFL set the salary cap for 2014 at $133 million which was higher than many thought it would be. According to league sources in contact with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, it could be a trend that continues. One source with knowledge of the process… tells PFT that the cap could
You really can’t spend a lot of time talking about NFL football and talking about refereeing. It has a tendency to go both ways and good teams overcome all kinds of bad calls all the time. It’s a part of the game, period. Of course I open my recap that way because today is not
It is no secret that the Browns are still a team in transition, building for the future. Team President and GM Mike Lombardi have already shown they have their own agenda and anyone who was brought in during the run of the previous regime shouldn’t feel safe. Today at 4:00 PM, the NFL has its
As a local market representative and league manager of one of 16 teams invited to be a part of Crown Royal’s inaugural Fantasy Football League dubbed “First and Crown,” I will be using this spot every Sunday before the Browns kick off against their respective opponent to tell you who I’ll be watching during this
