The guy has huge arms; cool. Can he also tote the rock?
Ahtyba Rubin’s time with Cleveland has officially run out as he signed a deal with the Seattle Seahawks this week for just one season. I was curious to see what the big man would get financially, and now those details are starting to emerge. According to Adam Caplan, it’s a one-year deal with the reigning
Since the Cleveland Browns did not make the Super Bowl once again, I have decided to choose a temporary rooting interest in the “big game” on Sunday. It’s not an easy call. Neither team is especially likeable from a Clevelander’s perspective: Seattle is the reigning (more like “raining” am I right?) champs and New England already
Off to another fine week of podcasting. I caught up with Dave Sterling (@dimoko)after his week of travel and we discussed lots of sports stuff, plus video games. Watching McFarland USA live and doing a movie podcast on it The Super Bowl is set with the Pats set to face the Seahawks Packers loss compared
When the Browns cut Ray Agnew recently, it was surmised on Twitter by some that the Browns were making a move so that they could protect Kiero Small from being plucked from their practice squad. It was suggested to me by someone (sorry, can’t remember who but I think it was a member of the
Thanks, but no thanks.
When I wrote up the rumors regarding Mike Holmgren potentially coaching the Oakland Raiders, I joked about finding out more on Seattle radio. Apparently, it wasn’t a joke as Mike Holmgren actually did just that. “Yeah, I did go down there,” Holmgren told Mitch Levy. “A couple of years ago, I had met with [owner]
The Cleveland Browns made a relatively below-the-radar move earlier this month, adding offensive lineman Michael Bowie after he was waived by the Seattle Seahawks. Seahawks offensive line coach Tom Cable appeared on 710 ESPN Seattle, suggesting that the Seahawks still believed in Bowie and that the Seahawks expected the Browns to stay away from him,
In what appears to be a pretty strange transaction, the Cleveland Browns have signed Michael Bowie, who was waived injured by the Seattle Seahawks. Bowie is expected to be out 4-6 months with an injured shoulder according to the Seattle Times. Pete Carroll reportedly called the shoulder injury “significant,” but that remains to be seen.
The Cavaliers surely wasted an entire year bringing back Mike Brown to the Cavs bench for the 2013-14 season. How else do you explain his ouster after just one season of his five year $20 million deal? David Griffin has got to be deep into his search for Mike Brown’s replacement already and Sam Amick indicates
Could the Browns someday work to eliminate Steelers fans from Browns games? Wouldn’t that be sweet? Could they only sell tickets to fans who live in a certain area? Those two questions will be answered soon, it would appear, thanks to a lawsuit filed by a 49ers fan against the Seattle Seahawks. I’m fascinated by
I’m not spoiling Draft Day when I say that it involves some wheeling and dealing for draft picks in and around the NFL Draft. I’m also not spoiling anything when I say that the Seattle Seahawks were the trade partner with Kevin Costner and the Browns regarding a presumed number one draft pick quarterback. What
The Browns thought they had a reliable veteran receiver when they traded for Davone Bess last season. That didn’t work out all that well for the Browns as Bess turned into what appeared to be a pot-smoking rastafarian via his own social media presence. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Browns have found a
The off-season already feels old for the Cleveland Browns as it’s been 35 days since they last played football on December 29. As the Browns seem set to announce Kyle Shanahan as their offensive coordinator, and as we sit back and think about how Seattle decimated the Broncos in the Super Bowl, I have a
It’s always great to catch up with Dennis Manoloff (follow D-Man on Twitter) and it has been too long since I have done so. D-Man talked to me about a variety of topics today from the Browns hiring Mike Pettine, philisophically how he treats the Pilot Flying J case as a Browns story, and Anthony
I want a new stadium. A modern, open-air, architectural beauty of a venue placed right in the heart of the city. One that looks like it is straight from Flight of the Navigator. It has curves and construction and impressively bright lights with jaw-dropping views of the downtown skyline. One that holds in all of
Defensive end Brian Sanford has sign a deal with the Cleveland Browns, the team confirmed on Thursday morning. ESPN’s Adam Caplan first reported news of a two-year contract on Christmas Day. Sanford, 26, might be most well known in Cleveland for being Seattle’s return in the eventually voided John Moffitt trade. The vocal Moffitt, who
I have the feeling that there are more fans of the Trent Richardson trade than detractors at this point in time. That wasn’t the case on the day that the trade occurred, I don’t think. Those who claimed that the Browns were tanking the season (like I did) have been treated to a three game
That was interesting. The Browns and Seattle Seahawks made a trade yesterday sending DE Brian Sanford to the Seahawks for offensive lineman John Moffitt. The guard was in Berea today, but just before practice he was brought back into the locker room. It seems the Browns didn’t like what they saw in Moffitt’s physical. Moffitt
I was reading an otherwise great article today at Grantland by Bill Barnwell that pointed out how bad a job Jacksonville Jaguars GM Gene Smith is at his job, when a snippet caught my attention. While talking about Josh Scobee and his contract from the Jags, a footnote said the following about Phil Dawson. Given that
