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 the preseason and argue that Richardson missed five games, that’s your right, but just know that you’re being disingenuous and that you’ve forfeited the right to ever complain about paying regular season prices for preseason tickets.
The Browns drafted Trent Richardson with the third overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. During his third and final season at Alabama in 2011, Richardson carried the ball 283 times and caught 29 passes for a total of 312 touches in just 13 games. That’s an average of 24 touches per game, many of which were against the stout defenses of the Southeastern Conference. That’s a lot of wear,...

“Travis had at least as many catches if not more than anybody...
Barkevious Mingo was drafted by the Cleveland Browns with the sixth overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft ad is expected to contend for an outside linebacker job.
As the Browns move to a revamped 3-4, Mingo is a key piece in Ray Horton’s attacking style defense.
In 2012, he played in all 13 games with 10 starts, and earned second team All-SEC honors after recording 38 tackles...
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. Since 1994 players have had the option of wearing the somewhat cumbersome pads, with many NFLers choosing not to wear them, saying the leg protection is uncomfortable and slows them down.
The Cleveland Browns will hold training camp from July 25 through August 13th, and feature 15 practices open and free to the public, including their annual Family Night on August 3rd, writes Mary Kay Cabot fo the Plain Dealer. The practices will be later in the day, from 4 to 6:30pm at the Berea training facility, expect for Family night, which will start at 6:30pm.
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...
Lets not pretend that Josh Gordons two-game suspension at the start of the Browns 2013 season is a minor thing.
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 Cleveland Browns are reportedly interested in former Baltimore Ravens fullback Vonta Leach.

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...
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...
