Cleveland-browns-new
Since his days with the Saints, Scott Fujita has always been outspoken with his political views — specifically those regarding gay rights. Now with the Cleveland Browns his stance remains the same, and as the issue heats up with reports of inappropriate questions being asked at the NFL Combine, the linebacker once again talked about the next step toward accepting openly gay players in the locker room. In an interview with 92.3 The Ticket in Cleveland (compiled by Sports Radio), Fujita discussed how the NFL Players Association can help gay players feel comfortable about coming out, the issue, or rather non-issue, of a gay player in the Browns locker room and coaches reportedly asking players if they like girls at the combine. Fujita, who holds a political science degree from the University of California, Berkeley, shed some light on how other athletes can help by speaking out — like Vikings punter Chris Kluwe and Ravens linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo have done extensively in the past ...

A Guy In L.A. Takes Being A Browns Fan To A Whole New Level.

For one Browns fan he could care less about who the starting quarterback is, whether or not it is Brandon Weeden or Colt McCoy he is going to root for his Cleveland Browns from his living room  no matter how many games they win or lose.

It’s Time For The Cleveland Browns To Cut Receiver Mohamed Massaquoi

The Cleveland Browns need to part ways with receiver Mohamed Massaquoi. He has never lived up to all the hype he got from former team president Mike Holmgren.

Attack is the keyword for the Browns defense

Some day its the chicken, others the egg. So it goes with the Cleveland Browns' new defensive system, a chicken or egg question if ever there was one.

CEO Joe Banner had a plain answer last week when he met the...

It’s J.R. Rickert, Cribbs Agent That Should Know The Tampering Rules, Not Josh.

But that didn’t stop Vontae Leach from tweeting that former teammate Sean Smith was negotiating...
