This article is going to address a subject that many Cleveland fans are already aware of. It’s also going to address a subject that will make nearly everyone else laugh.
This article is about the emergence of the Cleveland Browns, and by no means should you be laughing.
The last decade (besides 2007‘s 10-6 finish) has certainly not been kind to the Browns or their fans, as the team is repeatedly picked for a high first round draft pick.
Their defense lacked a bit in terms of yards allowed, but was fairly strong when it counted, limiting red zone touchdowns.
Free Agency brought the loss of receiver and star punt-returner Josh Cribbs, as he will be an Arizona Cardinal next year. However, Free Agency has also brought a plethora of good news for Browns fans, as the higher-ups not only realize they have some money, but are willing to spend it. That’s an exciting sentiment, and one not shared by the people of Cincinnati.
The former defensive star from Baltimore, Paul Kruger will be playing for the Browns next season.
The team also signed TE Gary Barnidge, formerly with the Carolina Panthers.
