Josh McCown, Andy Lee among highest graded Browns vs. Washington

The Browns lost the preseason opener against Washington, and that’s fine — the preseason is less about winning and more about getting up to speed and figuring out who can really play. (And to a lesser extent, it’s about seeing how those new uniforms look.) To that end, Pro Football Focus released its top five graded players from both the Browns and the Skins. PFF’s grading...

As reported over the weekend on Cover 32, the Cleveland Browns traded a seventh round draft pick in 2017 to the San Francisco 49ers in return for All-Pro punter Andy Lee.

Following the selection of Clemson’s Bradley Pinion in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL draft, the San Francisco 49ers seemingly didn’t have any use for three-time Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee. So on the surface it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that San Francisco shipped Lee off to the Cleveland Browns for a seventh-round pick in 2017 on Saturday....
