Cleveland Browns fans are tired of waiting and hoping for someday. The Browns had the fourth youngest team in the NFL last year; and they are going to be even younger in 2012. Fifteen rookies including QB Brandon Weeden and RB Trent Richardson made the team to go along with 11 second-year players and seven players entering their third year. That means that 62% (33 players) of the 53-man roster will have two years or less of NFL experience to start the season.
