Found June 13, 2013 on College Spun:
Yesterday on College Spun, we showed you some pretty cool motivational workout shirts that the Arizona State football team had made up. Now, it’s NC State’s turn to showcase wisdom. Frisman Jackson is the wide receivers coach at NC State, and was formerly an NFL receiver for the Cleveland Browns. Today, he tweeted out a picture of a sign that hangs in the football meeting room: Sign in my meeting room….reminder to my players… — Frisman Jackson (@Frisman88) June 13, 2013 Pretty typical advice right there, but important nonetheless. I particularly like the “Speak for Yourself” bit at the bottom.

Brandon Weeden on Travis Benjamin: “He’s stuck out”

Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal wrote a detailed article on the state of the Cleveland Browns wide receiver corps on Monday.

Cleveland Browns fans and their Trent Richardson paranoia

Browns fans have high expectations for Richardson in his second season. Hey, Browns fans, here’s a quick quiz: How many games did “injury-prone” running back Trent Richardson miss last year in his rookie season? The answer? One, and it was the finale against the Steelers in Pittsburgh, when the Browns fate for the season had been known for weeks. If you want to look back to...

Greg Little says he won’t wear thigh and knee pads despite new rule

Count Cleveland Browns wide receiver Greg Little among those not enamored with the NFL’s new rule that requires all players, save for punters and kickers, to wear thigh and knee pads.

What Barkevious Mingo’s Browns contract might look like

Barkevious Mingo hasn’t signed a deal with the Browns just yet, even as he was on hand for the new sign to be placed on what will now be known as FirstEnergy stadium. With the new collective bargaining agreement and rookie wage slotting, it’s only a matter of time before Mingo’s deal gets done. Still, as some people in front of Mingo and also behind him in the first round have...

Gordon's suspension no laughing matter

Lets not pretend that Josh Gordons two-game suspension at the start of the Browns 2013 season is a minor thing. Its not. Its a pretty big thing. Because it could cost the Browns two wins. Just like Joe Hadens suspension a year ago cost the Browns wins. The two are key players, and their absence matters. In Haden, the Browns missed their best cover corner. In Gordon, they will miss...

The current negative streak in Cleveland Sports is truly remarkable

Jimmy Haslam didn’t like the penalty that overturned the Browns TD I feel like we’ve said this every year for a while now, but I can’t think of a worse time in Cleveland sports. 1 I’m really not going out of my way to dwell in the negative here. I think there are some good things going on in all three Cleveland sports teams right now. I think the Browns have a decent young...
