Tuesday afternoon marks the end of the Phil Taylor era in Cleveland. With the Browns needing to reduce their roster to 75 players by 4 p.m., the team announced that they have terminated the contract of the 2011 first-round selection. The 2011 NFL Draft was one where the Browns’ fortunes were changed during a Week
There have been more downs than ups over the past 15 seasons. That only makes our favorite players mean that much more.
Cleveland Browns first round pick Danny Shelton was drafted to be the cornerstone of the team’s defensive line. He has shown a lot of promise so far in training camp and it seems like his fellow teammates are taking notice as the 6-foot-2, 339-pound defensive tackle has even received comparisons to Pro Bowl defensive lineman
Over the last couple weeks, I examined the Browns defense position by position. This side of the ball seems to be in very good shape. In this preview, I finish up on the defense by looking at the Browns d-line. Last year, this group was the Achilles heel of the defense. Over this offseason, the
In his second year with the Browns, Mike Pettine took his team on another team-building exercise. Last year, he took them to the movies.

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
As the snow continues to pummel the city of Cleveland, injury news for the Browns’ Week 11 tilt against the Houston Texans continues to pile up. One of the more discussed injuries heading into Sunday has been Houston running back Arian Foster who has been officially listed as out for the afternoon. There was early-week optimism
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 Browns will face a big division matchup without two of the best weapons on offense. Tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Andrew Hawkins will be out tonight versus the Cincinnati Bengals. The game will be even tougher then expected because of these two inactive players. The Browns must rely on their running game
The Cleveland Browns have released their inactive list for their matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Browns will be thin again at the defensive line position this week. The defensive line will be without Phil Taylor, Billy Winn, and Ahtyba Rubin when the team hits the field versus the winless Jaguars. The Browns will start Desmond Bryant,
