Brian Hoyer praises Johnny Manziel for checking into rehab

Cleveland Browns’ quarterback Brian Hoyer is on course to become a free agent next week after being the primary starter for the team last year. Even though he and fellow quarterback Johnny Manziel competed for the starting job last summer and Manziel sat mainly on the sideline, there was a respect on Hoyer’s side at least for the young quarterback. Hoyer had this to say to...

You Won’t Believe How Browns' Top Receiver Launched His NFL Career

Andrew Hawkins lived up to expectations as our breakout candidate for the Cleveland Browns last season, racking up a career-high and team-high 63 receptions and 824 yards with a pair of touchdowns in 2014. A former undrafted product out of Toledo, Hawkins certainly isn’t your average receiver. For starters, he turns 29 years old next week and only has four NFL seasons under his...

Joe Haden says Justin Gilbert is starting to signs of 'growing up'

Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam seems to be telling most of his players this offseason to 'grow up.' It's the prevailing message being given out to just about every young player on the roster. Cornerback Justin Gilbert is another in a long line that includes wide receiver Josh Gordon and quarterback Johnny Manziel as players who owner Jimmy Haslam has made it a point to...

The Cleveland Browns are impervious to rebranding

Last week the Browns made national headlines and put the local news cycle on freeze with a heavily promoted “rebranding” that turned out not to be a rebranding at all. For all the many ways this offseason has somehow again plunged the franchise to new depths of league-laughingstock status, the whole “rebranding” episode was actually glorious, and a much-needed reminder of...

The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance and an Unexpected Amount of Andrew Hawkins: While We’re Waiting…

Last Friday, I described the Cleveland Browns’ “chronic credibility” crisis and status as the biggest punchline in the NFL following The Orangening. Within hours of completing the column, Grantland’s Brian Phillips recreated the marketing questionnaire that resulted in the Browns new sans-serif, orangier identity; Jimmy Fallon thanked the Browns for making a nearly identical...

Browns aren’t expected to sign WR Cecil Shorts

The Cleveland Browns are in major need of finding some wide receiver help this offseason, and one name that has been mentioned quite often is Jacksonville Jaguars free agent wide receiver Cecil Shorts. According to a report from Tony Grossi, it isn’t likely that the Browns will end up signing Shorts in free agency. “@KevinMarcinick: Chances the Browns sign Cecil Shorts?...

Nobody’s safe in the NFL and nothing is sacred

Part of the reason that the signing of Josh McCown was such big news in Cleveland is because it meant the end of Brian Hoyer. As a player, there’s nothing worth talking about with Brian. Even as I’ve supported him as a player, I only did so while acknowledging that in a given year, he could be, at best, a mediocre quarterback. For other fans it went deeper because Brian Hoyer...

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel soars in latest QB Rankings

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

Browns OC wants Johnny Manziel 'obsessed' with football

Browns OC wants Manziel thinking 'about football all the time'

It's quite simple for Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator John DeFilippo - If Johnny Manziel wants to be anything of an NFL quarterback, he'd better let go of all his extra-curricular interests and focus on nothing but football. “It’s truly a lifestyle to be an NFL quarterback,” DeFilippo said on ESPN 850 WKNR. “It’s not just a job. It’s all-consuming. You need...

Cleveland Browns get dissed in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important. And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...

Justin Gilbert working out with Joe Haden

Through all of the distractions that the Cleveland Browns had to endure with regard to quarterback Johnny Manziel, it was fellow first-rounder Justin Gilbert who drew the ire of his veteran teammates. One of the veterans who spoke about Gilbert was fellow cornerback and first-round draft pick Joe Haden, a player who also came in to the league with a boat load of expectations, a passion...

Should the Cleveland Browns consider an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Grateful not to be the Philadelphia Browns…or the Cleveland Eagles…

The Browns just signed veteran QB Josh McCown for 3 years, $14 million, $6 million guaranteed. He’s 35 years old and was 1-10 as a starter for Tampa Bay last season. It seems that Philadelphia front office personnel who left the Eagles a few years ago to join the Cleveland Browns have only made matters worse there. To be fair to the individuals involved, like Joe Banner and Tom...

McCown plans to embrace mentoring role with Manziel

At 35 years old, newly signed Cleveland Browns quarterback Josh McCown is definitely not the long-term solution for the team. However, he will provide a source of stability until 2014 first-round pick Johnny Manziel matures in his role with the team. General manager Ray Farmer called McCown a “great guy in the locker room” who “will be great for the quarterback room.” Speaking...
