Hey Browns fans, you wondering what Ray Horton is going to do with the Cleveland Browns defense? Wonder no more, in an Arizona radio interview Horton said he will have the Cleveland Browns defense mimic the Pittsburgh Steelers defense. The Browns will be going to a 3-4 defense Horton said. He wasn’t say about it at all. So with the Browns going to the 3-4 defense I hope Horton has his eye on some good linebackers in the upcoming NFL draft. Not only does Cleveland need a linebacker who can play in open space, he needs another good corner back.
