Cleveland Browns DB Joe Haden saved the prom dreams of an Ohio girl after her date bailed on her at the last minute. Joyce Grendel asked Haden if he would attend her high school prom with her, a bold step taken via Twitter after her original date backed out in the days before the event. To [...]
BEST OF MAXIM
HAVING A BALL
A Twitter follower without a date to prom asked Joe Haden if he'd like to take her, and much to her surprise, he replied back that he'd love to.
SHOCK AND LAW
Citing concussions as the reason, undrafted rookie Andrew Sweat passed up a chance to make the Cleveland Browns in order to go back to law school.
I was unable to make it to rookie camp this weekend to see and behold the skills of Brandon Weeden and Trent Richardson. In some ways that’s probably a good thing. I learned last year in regular training camp that it is quite a vacuum to look at football. Without some serious perspective it is easy to think the team is far better or far worse than reality.
That doesn’t mean it...
If you thought it was hard enough to believe Mike Homgren last week when he said he expected the 2012 Browns to make “a pretty good jump,” here comes the people who risk real money on these promises to say that if Pat Shurmur’s charges are going to make any kind of significant jump next season, it’ll be backward.
As reported last week, Cantor Gaming, which operates the sports...
The AFC North is always tough, and 2011 was no exception. All four teams were in the top 10 in overall defense. They made up half of the AFC playoff teams, going a combined 25-15 outside the division. Even the Browns were an almost respectable 4-6 outside the AFC North.
2012 should be similar. So getting a better look at the rest of the division to see what should be coming our way...
The Browns have cut running back Armond Smith and signed linebacker Emmanuel Acho, one of their 11 draft picks.
Smith made Cleveland's roster last season as an undrafted free agent. He played in three games and spent 11 weeks on the team's practice squad.
Acho, who started 48 career games at Texas, was selected in the sixth round. His signing leaves running back Trent Richardson...
According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, the Cleveland Browns are optimistic that defensive tackle Phil Taylor will be able to make a significant impact during the 2012 season, despite the fact that he just tore his pectoral muscle.
I think Taylor will start out the regular season on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list, which will force him to miss the...
Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor has undergone surgery to repair a torn chest muscle he injured while lifting weights.
Taylor tore his left pectoral muscle while bench pressing during the offseason conditioning program last week at the team's facility. A Browns spokesman said the surgery ''went well'' and the 335-pound Taylor is resting comfortably at the...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Browns defensive tackle Phil Taylor has undergone surgery to repair a torn chest muscle he injured while lifting weights.
Taylor tore his left pectoral muscle while bench pressing during the offseason conditioning program last week at the team's facility. A Browns spokesman said the surgery "went well" and the 335-pound Taylor is resting comfortably...
What I will tell you is we’ve got a freshman at Alabama that’ll probably make us forget about Trent Richardson already. They’re that good down in Tuscaloosa right now. Trent’s a physical player. So is Ray [Lewis]. They asked [Ravens top draft choice] Courtney Upshaw about playing against Trent, and he said, ‘I think I can get him on the ground.’ That’s what’s fun...
Last night was big in the City of Cleveland with the opening of the State’s first casino, The Horseshoe Casino driven by Cavaliers’ owner, Dan Gilbert. Gilbert has a history of involving other local athletes in big events. Browns players are routinely seen court side at Cavs games and several Browns players even attended last [...]
