BEREA, Ohio The Browns have longed for a dominant pass rusher from the defensive end position for over a decade.
They hope theyve found one in Jabaal Sheard.
The second-year defensive end from Pitt accounted for 8 sacks as a rookie, but he thinks he left more on the field. The last time the Browns had a defensive end account for at least 8 sacks was when Keith McKenzie had the same number back in 2000.
There were probably some sacks I couldve had if I finish the play, Sheard said. Its something I definitely want to be great at. I definitely want to be the best at my position, thats what I work for.
I dont know yet where I standthere are some elite guys out there, he said. But I hope one day I can be one of those guys.
Sheard (6-2, 255) had 55 tackles as a rookie with five forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and two passes broken up. Sheard was named to the Pro Football WeeklyProfessional Football Writers Association (PFWPFWA) All-Rookie team. He finished second in the AFC among rookie...

We looked past the diamond encrusted pendants that swung from his neck like a pendulum. We looked past the sunglasses indoors phenomenon that was so eloquently embraced. We did so because what happened on the field of play; a highly talented player isn’t exactly the norm when it comes to post-1999 Cleveland Browns football. Having a player who can make a game-changing play at nearly...

This is what Browns receiver Mohammed Massaquoi said to a fan last night asking if he had suffered a concussion. The third-year Georgia product left Friday night’s preseason game against Detroit after sustaining...
This is a little meta because Jamison Hensley was quoting Adam Schefter’s mailbag in creating his own blog post about Colt McCoy being a trade fit with the Green Bay Packers. Schefter’s thoughts are nothing new, really, except to say that Aaron Rodgers still needs a capable backup now that Matt Flynn has moved along to Seattle. Hensley’s take is what I am quoting and responding...
Highly touted Cleveland Browns rookie running back Trent Richardson gave dynasty league and early drafters a bit of a scary when news that he had soreness in the knee he had surgery on in February.
Things really got tense when word came out that he will travel to see Dr. James Andrews. is also talk of a second scope. That is not news you want to hear for somebody that likely...
More bad news for the Browns, at the same time they found out that star cornerback Joe Haden could be suspended for 4 games, Trent Richardson will have to undergo surgery on his left knee. That surgery is just a scope so it’s as minor as it comes, but this is the 2nd time that knee has been operated on this year, so it’s not what you want to see from the player you just spent...
Joe Haden, the 7th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, is reportedly in danger of being suspended for 4 games, according to ESPN Cleveland, after testing positive for Adderall during a routine drug test. Adderall is a classified as a performance enhancing “stimulant” by the NFL. The NFL has reportedly told Haden he tested positive and that they are reviewing the drug test. Haden...
Nine passing attempts isn’t a lot. It only seems that way when one is picked off, another bounces off the pads of an opposing cornerback who’s streaking for your end zone, and a tenth is ruled a fumble.
Eight penalties in the first half, and allowing your opponent 6.4 yards per carry in the same half, though? That’s just Shurmurball.
Like Brandon Weeden in 2012, Joe...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, a source has told him that Cleveland Browns cornerback Joe Haden used Adderal as a “pick me up” during an offseason visit.
“A league source tells PFT that the locker-room scuttlebutt in Cleveland is that cornerback Joe Haden tested positive for Adderall after taking the ADD medication as a “pick-me-up” during an...
Trevin Wade looks like he may be another seventh-round selection with a chance to start in the Browns' secondary to start the 2012 season.
Injuries happen in the NFL. It’s pretty much inevitable. Between grueling practices and preseason games, the fantasy football owner of now has to keep their fingers crossed that high-ranking fantasy options can not only stay healthy during the regular season, but can stay upright throughout August. One such player who has made the news in the past week has been Browns RB Trent...
