BROWNS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Fan perception: what we learned about the Browns' special teams units heading into training camp

Here is a summary of each of our training camp preview polls for the Cleveland Browns’ outside linebackers: -------------------------------- I thought Patrick Murray would get a decent amount of support, due to how important the threat of 50+ yard field goals is. However, I didn’t expect him to not only beat Travis Coons, but do so with 61% of the votes. I’ve obsessed with...

Former Redskins teammate not a big fan of Robert Griffin III

To say that Robert Griffin III was a divisive figure during his four-year tenure with the Washington Redskins would be an understatement. Griffin III saw his career get off to a rock-solid start, as he led Washington to a division title as a rookie. Since suffering a late-season injury that year, the former Heisman winner has never been the same. Now, looking to rejuvenate his...

Santana Moss ranks Robert Griffin below Rex Grossman and Jason Campbell

When Robert Griffin burst onto the NFL scene in 2012, many thought he was going to be the Washington Redskins' franchise quarterback for the foreseeable future.

Johnny Manziel gives update on his health, says he won't quit drinking

Johnny Manziel's professional life has been in a downward spiral since being unceremoniously released from the Cleveland Browns in March, and those close to him are more concerned with Manziel's personal health than if he'll ever play again in the NFL.

Johnny Manziel: I won’t stop drinking, am mostly being healthy

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel finally opened up about what he’s going through and shared a bit of his plan for the future. And even though he said he was done partying following his trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico on July 1, it doesn’t seem like he’s done drinking.

Losing Desmond Bryant could really hurt the Cleveland Browns

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, the Cleveland Browns can’t catch a break. TGFTC, right? This week, the Browns lost their best pass-rusher, Desmond Bryant, to a freak, season-ending pectoral injury. And that hurts, because pass-rushing is kind of important (re-watch Super Bowl 50 for a reminder) and the Browns ranked 29th in football with just 29 sacks last season...

Who are the police to essentially threaten Browns, fans?

In the aftermath of the horror that rocked the nation last week in Minnesota, Louisiana and Texas, Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell did something very stupid. The 23-year-old posted a graphic illustration online depicting the murder of a police officer, and although he took the post down almost immediately and issued an apology, he’ll likely never live that original...

Report: Browns voided Manziel's guaranteed money

Looking back at it now, the Cleveland Browns’ decision to draft Johnny Manziel was a big-time mistake. Besides all of the off-the-field antics, Manziel was barely a factor as a quarterback during his time in Cleveland. But the Browns were able to make some more intelligent moves at the end of the Manziel era.

To say that Johnny Manziel’s two-year stint as a member of the Cleveland Browns was an unmitigated, dumpster fire-level disaster would be a massive understatement. The disappointing and sometimes troubling saga of Johnny Football’s failed NFL career — at least at this point, if not from here on — more than aptly justifies why his No. 2 Browns jersey evidently can be had...
