    Mini- Camp

    Yeah, might be right there. My educated guess (totally spit balling) is that Duke had some conversations about his role moving forward in the early off season with Chubb obviously earning top dog. The powers that be stated to him that he was definitely part of the plan, and then got blind sided with a guy like Hunt being signed (obviously to be the back-up). If I'm even around the right answer, I can't blame Duke. Rightly or wrongly, speaking out in today's NFL gets the players leverage (see AB) and may motivate the Browns to make a move, maybe not. What I feel very strongly about is that Duke is good enough to be a good role player on many teams in the NFL. If I got the vibe he (Duke) was the master mind behind everything, I'd feel differently. The part I just don't understand is that we got him on a pretty friendly deal with no cap savings. A trade would net a 5th round pick, at most. Why this team wouldn't see him as a great back-up for the first 1/2 of the season doesn't make sense, unless there is a injury or something weird.

    Mini- Camp

    The organization has done a lot of things right, but I can't wrap my head around this Duke situation. Since he's been here Duke's kept his head down and been a good player. For him to be talking that way at mini-camp no less means they miffed him pretty hard. With Hunt out 1/2 the season, I'm left scratching my head on why we boxed Johnson out as has obviously occurred. I don't ever blame a player for wanting to get snaps on the field. Duke is an exceptional back-up, change of pace back who could bring a lot of value to many clubs like he has in Cleveland. Just odd the team has rebuked him, perhaps there's something we don't know about off the field?

    Except you didn't. You made a tired gay joke and got all whiny cause people called you out for it. It's quite amusing to see people like you get backed into a corner now after getting lambasted for being a piece of shit.

    Austin Siebert ... Browns grab a kicker

    You know, I'll be interested to see if this trend will change in the future. This article by fivethirtyeight makes a strong argument NOT to draft: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/memo-to-nfl-gms-stop-drafting-kickers/ kicker anyway, but that's using a lot of empirical data. I think that's going to move towards drafting guys.

    Glad about the pick but but man Jim brown looked bad. Not trying to be funny, he looked confused like my grandpa did before he was told he had dementia.

    Greedy Williams

    Incredible value pick, has top 10 talent.

    Tyreek Hill

    Further, while I would never defend Hunt's actions there was at least two sides to that story. I don't believe Hunt just went off on that woman, she was clearly acting belligerent and likely called him some racial slurs. Again, not defending the dude for attacking but there's at least some burden of action. Hill is an absolute piece of shit. He beat up and strangles a pregnant woman, had a lot of rumors of being a beater, and now clearly beats up on defenseless kids. If Goddell has a spine he deserves at least a two year suspension, if not permanent banishment.

    round 2

    If Dorsey was targeting a CB, he's in a damn fine position. Murphy and Williams are great value at this point. However, I'm just gonna throw up that I'm still on the Risner bandwagon.

    Honestly, I think they got too cute with it. They trotted him out on the voluntary workouts, etc to throw a smokescreen when it was really obvious they were going Murray. A high 2nd round pick would have been easily gotten, but now they're kinda stuck. The Dolphins, Broncos and Bengals are the only teams I see now who may throw them a bone. Honestly, why not keep the guy? Give him the Jimmy G treatment and in two years see what you can get.

    Upset Browns Fans

    This was my concern as well, by far. I didn't think the guy was Manziel 2.0 in the slightest, but rather the simple truth of Big 12 QB's having essentially no success in the NFL. Between Mahomes and Baker, that script is officially flipped.

    I'm more than happy to take my plate to the all you can eat buffet of crow.

    Regular Season Schedule

    For sure, but they don't need to blue ball this much either. It's a big deal, but they try to make it a holy roller event for views which I think is a bit unfortunate.

    Regular Season Schedule

    OBJ also wrote on Jamal Adams' instagram "see you week one". Won't believe till I see it, but it does make a whole lot of sense for the reasons noted. Have to admit though, I'd be bummed a bit to not get football Sunday started with the Browns.

    Cut Browns Find New Home Thread

    Obviously these guys want to play and get their full money, but: Can you imagine signing a deal that even if you get fired you still pocket $100k? One can dream 😪

    It's true, Cowherd hates the Browns...

    This dude is Ghoolie with a television show. Seriously people, the producers of that show are specifically telling the dude to yank the chain for views. It's a damn shame that's the world of news nowadays, but it seems like many of you are falling for it exactly how they hope. TBH though, I think this garbage still gives Baker some sort of axe to grind on the field.
