Alex Mack dominated the voting receiving 83% of the first place votes. I’ve always said that Alex Mack could very easily be considered the greatest legacy that Eric Mangini leaves on the Cleveland Browns. The Browns center has taken one trip to the Pro Bowl and seems poised to hold down the Browns center position with toughness and heart for the foreseeable future.
Jeff Faine is a perfect example of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The Notre Dame product was drafted 21st in the 2003 NFL draft and played 36 games in three years before being traded on draft day to New Orleans. New Orleans was the team that lost their center, LeCharles Bentley to the Browns in free agency. Faine is currently with the Tampa Bay Bucs.
Hank Fraley was brought to Cleveland from the Eagles where he was the odd man out. The Browns seemed to be unable to find anyone to play center as LeCharles Bentley went down with what would eventually be a career-ending knee injury. What was an odd man out in Phil...

Cleveland Browns fans might be torn on Colt McCoy but Mike Mayock of the NFL Network isn’t. He believes the Browns should do everything they can do to land Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III. “As much as I like Colt McCoy, I still think they have to look to upgrade that position and I think they have to do whatever it takes to get there,” said Mayock of grabbing Griffin...
There's no doubt that the Browns have reached a fork in the road following a disappointing campaign in 2011. There star running back ran for only 587 yards in his 10 games of action, and it's still unclear if they have their starting quarterback in Colt McCoy. The decisions made in the next few months about the future of the Browns' offense will likely determine their...
Ryan Tucker has always been a fan favorite even as he struggled with drug suspensions. Something about the big, tattooed guy was just so lovable. He was a good player too when he was on the field. That’s why it isn’t surprising at a position like right tackle where the Browns have struggled so hard to fill it, that fans showed love for Ryan Tucker. Tucker scored 72...
Shaun O’Hara just won another Super Bowl with the Giants. The Browns found a diamond in the rough as they signed O’Hara as an undrafted free agent in 2000. O’Hara started his final 34 games with the Browns before signing a big free agent deal with the Giants. O’Hara thought he was going to play center for the Giants, but has held down their guard spot for years. O’Hara...
Hey when a guy as great as Randy Moss wants to comeback into the NFL and wonders if he can find a team to play on, it is time for a team like the Cleveland Browns & Mike Holmgren to pick up the phone and call this guy and make him a offer. Randy Moss has made a ustream video that talks about making a comeback to the NFL. In the Video Moss said, “Your boy is going to come back...
Aston Villa manager Alex McLeish is visiting his Cleveland Browns counterpart to pick up coaching tips amid mounting fan protests as the club battles against relegation from the Premier League.
American sports tycoon Randy Lerner, who owns both teams, asked McLeish to go to the NFL team to spend two days shadowing coach Pat Shurmur.
Villa says ''Lerner believes there are...
With Peyton Hillis’ future in Cleveland in relative peril, reports are now circulating that the Browns front office is split whether or not to sign the bruising running back to a new contract following his drama-filled 2011 campaign.
In what was just a line item in CBS’s Mike Freeman’s latest column, a significant portion of the Browns brass appears ready to not only move on...

“Many of these teams drafted poorly, but the ratio of “teams that built contenders from lottery scratch” to “teams that did not” is really lopsided. The lottery...
The Browns have been one of the more underachieving franchises in the past couple of decades. The Browns have won a total of four league championships (NFL). They won all four AAFC titles (including a 15–0 undefeated season in 1948) which are not recognized by the NFL, and after joining the NFL they won four league championships prior to the league’s merger with the American...
