Former Cleveland Browns QB Bernie Kosar appeared on ESPN Radio Cleveland yesterday afternoon and gave a short, troubling interview where he audibly stumbled and slurred over his words. Kosar was doing his weekly spot on The Hooligans when the conversation devolved into a series of incoherent comments from the former Browns legend. Kosar talked about "franks and beans" and referred to "ducks and dynasty" and clearly was in no shape to be interviewed. Host Bruce Hooley actually tried to cut Kosar off, but the interview continued for another couple uncomfortable minutes. I've watched my fair share of Browns preseason games where Kosar serves as the color commentator and the jokes always go that Bernie sounds drunk. He naturally tends to slur his words a bit when he speaks, but this goes well and beyond a joking matter. Something definitely did not sound right in that interview. Kosar has had some documented personal issues to deal with in the past, so here's hoping this audio isn't a sign of trouble currently facing Kosar. (H/T TheRTTC)

BEREA, Ohio (AP) -- Kickoffs have defined Josh Cribbs' career in the NFL, and made him an invaluable weapon for the Cleveland Browns.
So the thought of the league abolishing the exciting play irritates the return specialist.

Earlier this week, Commissioner...
