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.

Kyle Shanahan Cleveland Browns

Have you ever heard of a young, well-compensated offensive coordinator who was out of a job as little as a year earlier corralling his superiors and providing them with a 32-point presentation on why the team should let him out of his contract? Well, if not: Welcome to Berea! Take it away, CBS Sports’ Jason

Colts promote Chudzinski to keep him in Indy

Ron Schwane-USA TODAY Sports

We told you recently about the Colts’ attempts to block Rob Chudzinski from leaving Indianapolis, and now they’ve followed that up by promoting him to keep him in the fold. I had wondered if Chud’s hiring wasn’t just a part of the coaching fraternity, but Chuck Pagano’s quotes about him show that it’s more than

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

Ray Farmer addresses Johnny Manziel’s partying, future

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns are so up front and honest when talking about players right now, that there never seem to be huge shocking moments. In the past, I have no doubt that guys like Pat Shurmur and Mike Holmgren would have shrugged off every single question about Johnny Manziel and then when the season ended

Johnny Manziel Cleveland Browns

Though Johnny Manziel was allegedly the hardest working guy in Berea leading up to last Sunday’s NFL debut, reports are circulating that all that work may have been for naught as the Cleveland Browns quarterback displayed much of the same poor footwork and decision making that was on display during the team’s 30-0 loss at
