New Cleveland Browns defensive coordinator Gregg Williams has a problematic history surrounding Bountygate and WFNY’s Pat Leonard isn’t happy about it.
A 12-hour day and still hungry for more.
I didn’t get a chance to chat with Andy Baskin and Andre Knott after the Week 1 loss to Pittsburgh due to technical issues. Week 2 had no such issues and the Browns won the game. In case you missed it, here’s the video clip. Skip on up to about 7:20 if you want to get right to
Everybody’s a winner! Well, mostly…
The Cleveland Browns won a football game! They won their home opener for the first time since 2004. They beat the New Orleans Saints. They did it with a game-winning drive engineered by Brian Hoyer. Here’s what else we talked about. We didn’t talk about Johnny Manziel at all, I don’t think. CLEVELAND BROWNS WIN
The first half of the Browns home opener is in the books with the Browns taking the lead into the locker room 16-10. I’m going to venture to say that the Cleveland Browns couldn’t have started with more intensity. Mike Pettine deferred on the kickoff. With that move, his defense looked inspired and the Browns
Next man up… It’s a game within the game in the NFL as players try to stay healthy enough to play 16 full games. Well, Jordan Cameron is out this week with a banged up shoulder, so there goes his perfect season of health. Other Browns inactives include Barkevious Mingo with a shoulder as well,
Surprise: Johnny Manziel will back-up Brian Hoyer during Week 2
Andrew Juge @SaintsNationBLG invited me to discuss the Browns on The Saints Nation and I asked him to come talk about the matchup on the WFNY Podcast. Here are some of the things we discussed. The Saints opening week loss to the Falcons Drew Brees as he gets to his mid-30’s Rob Ryan love in New Orleans
Everyone already knows that Josh Gordon is selling cars already, but that means people are visiting and talking to him every day. We got an email from one such fan who stopped to see Josh Gordon and the dynamic receiver indicated to that fan that he thought he’d be playing this Sunday against the New
There’s good news and bad news. The bad news is Ian Rapoport is hearing that Ben Tate will miss between two and four weeks with his knee strain. The good news is that his knee strain is just that. Not a tear or anything that will require surgery. What is the timeline for injured #Browns
One of the issues regarding Jimmy Graham’s fight with the Saints over whether he is a receiver or not had to do with him self-identifying as a tight end on his Twitter profile. I don’t know how much that factored into the fact that he was ultimately ruled a tight end, but Jordan Cameron decided not to
Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal has a notebook column out today and in it reports rumors that the Browns could be suitors for New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham. Graham was given a franchise tag by the Saints, but he’s yet to sign it. Graham could sign an offer sheet with another team, giving
The No Fun League is curbing celebrations once again. On Tuesday, NFL head of officiating Dean Blandino told Dan Patrick that the league will penalize the popular football dunking celebration. Pro Football Talk’s Michael David Smith astutely points out that this makes a bit of sense as Jimmy Graham’s celebration actually caused a game delay
Scott Fujita’s career in Cleveland went out with a whimper as he missed significant time due to injury, but he apparently wanted to be remembered as a Saint anyway. Fujita reportedly signed a one-day deal with the team that he helped to win a Super Bowl so he could retire there. In the end, Fujita’s
The news had it that Seneca Wallace was visiting the Raiders and somewhat close to coming to agreement, but that must not have been the case. Seneca Wallace reportedly signed with the Saints today on a one-year deal. Assuming that Seneca Wallace is officially a backup and only a backup, you have to think New
The New Orleans Times-Picayune first reported and Mary Kay Cabot confirmed that the Browns would host former Cowboys linebacker Victor Butler on a free agency visit. Butler is a former 4th round draft pick in 2009. Butler is an outside linebacker and if signed would be the third linebacker the Browns have signed this off-season
Per Mike Florio at Pro Football Talk, the New Orleans Saints have agreed to terms with tight end Ben Watson. The terms of the deal are said to stretch over three years. After spending six years with the New England Patriots, Watson was a key member of the Cleveland Browns’ passing attack from 2010-2012. He
Per his twitter account, former Steelers CB Keenan Lewis will be taking a visit to the New Orleans Saints- “Taking a drive down Airline Dr. To visit with the New Orleans Saints!!!” Lewis is the cornerback that many Browns fans were hoping to see Cleveland land in free agency. There were rumors and projections linking
This weekend the Cleveland Browns were without Scott Fujita, and now we are hearing some grim news about the prospects of seeing him on the field ever again. Fujita has a neck injury that could be career-ending, and he may never play another game, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports. That news comes as a major surprise.
