Golden State Warriors
St. Louis Rams
The Browns open preseason play this Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium against the St. Louis Rams. The big storylines will be how the team performs in brand new offensive and defensive systems. Brandon Weeden’s plays will be put under the biggest microscope Cleveland has to offer. Whether or not Trent Richardson plays will get it’s fair share of attention. Jabaal Sheard’s move to outside linebacker and whether rookie Barkevious Mingo looks good will all get columns devoted to them.
For these players, it is the beginning of a long season. For others, it could be the end of their time in orange and brown. Long after the first unit has left the field and some fans start leaving the stadium, players will be playing for their football lives.
Wide receiver Tori Gurley is one of those players.
Gurley is a 26 year old wide out from the University of South Carolina. He was an undrafted rookie free agent signee of Green Bay in 2011. He spent that season on Green Bay’s practice squad.
