Competing for a starting job this fall, Johnny Manziel spent some down time at the yard.
Though Johnny Manziel is expected to be in Cleveland on April 20, and the Browns lobbed a nice pay day in the direction of one Josh McCown, reports continue to swirl surrounding the team’s interest in Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

The Cleveland Browns’ signing of Josh, rhymes-with-brown, McCown has set off another round of eye-rolling, smirking and comments of consternation. I’d like to take a stab at trying to approach it from another direction. But first, an anecdote from the 2014 season: After the Browns convincingly defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-10, I took a peek
The 2015 NFL Draft is creeping closer and closer with the first round starting on April 30. Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be covering my top five prospects of each position in the 2015 NFL Draft. The first position that I will be covering is the safety position. For reference

The offense left Indianapolis meaning the defense began their on-field drills on day three of the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine.

The second day of on-field drills has come and gone in the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. The quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs took the field on Saturday to show off their skills. These groups are always the flashy and most talked about groups of the Combine. This year was no different with the likes
Another off-season, another quarterback rollercoaster for the Browns. In what seems like an annual pursuit for Cleveland, they are once again looking for someone to lead their offense.

The Super Bowl is over. Winter meetings have long been closed. The NBA is approaching All-Star break. Throughout much of the country, Cleveland included, snow still surrounds the local streets. Thus begins the dog days of winter—the days leading up to the NFL Draft and NBA playoffs and even Spring Training where there’s little to discuss.
With defensive tackle Danny Shelton shooting up draft boards, the Cleveland Browns may have to shift their focus come this spring—at least according to one Todd McShay.

The 2015 NFL rumor season is upon us and the Browns with their two first round picks are sure to be at the heart of rumor and speculation. It’s also no surprise on the heels of a Johnny Manziel rehab revelation that the speculation would shift into another gear entirely. It goes with the territory
