Cleveland Browns: Barkevious Mingo gets bigger to stay on the field

The NFL is a passing league in 2016.  Quarterbacks routinely pass the ball 50 times, and that’s not going to change any time soon.  The Cleveland Browns drafted outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo for that reason.  They saw a pure pass rusher that could get after the quarterback and wreak havoc.  Mingo is still unproven in that department, though.  That’s not all his wrongdoing...

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...

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.

Johnny Manziel Browns jersey can be had for $1.99?

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...
