Quinton Spears Tweet Insinuates ‘Politics’ At Play On Browns Roster

Former Browns linebacker Quinton Spears sent a not-so-sublte tweet jab at the organization on Sunday:

It doesn’t take a great leap of faith to imply that he’s talking about Pat Shumur’s decision to start Brandon Weeden over Colt McCoy. Weeden had a disastrous debut on Sunday, throwing four interceptions and failing to move the offense much at all. When asked to clarify, Spears comically tweeted “general wise man statement.” It’s vague enough I suppose — maybe he’s talking about the decision to keep LJ Fort over him.

Spears, who played in 13 games for the Browns last year, was in camp with both quarterbacks before being cut at the end of August as the team trimmed the roster to the final 53-man squad. Obviously, he’s likely not alone in this opinion, but it’s easy to pile on the team that just cut you after that catastrophe. It should make for a fun an interesting week on the North Coast.

    LJ Fort played very well. Heck, if the OLBs were healthy, there’s no question that Fort wouldn’t be on the team at this point.

    Fort and Robertson impressed me hopefully it’s just the start.

    Raises the existential question: If an imbecile ex-Cleveland jock grinds his axe with a tweet and it’s not reported, do Chris Perez and Jim Brown fall into depressions?

    Why does it have to be anything about a damn brown.. He is honestly way better than that whole Erin organization …. You guys are quick to insinuate things but he could of easily been talking about the presidential race or maybe a relationship or something….if your job consist of you stalking people’s tweet you must be one bored person ….I have a story for you if you really want something to write about
