Cleveland Browns defense shows youthful hope in disappointing season

The Cleveland Browns defense placed close to the bottom in most defensive rankings this season. The team bled yards and points (27 points per game) with an overpaid, old roster. It wasn’t just one position group either. All three levels showed ineptitude at one point this season. Defensive Line Desmond Bryant, Danny Shelton and Randy Starks combined for 105 tackles and 6...

Browns make it four losses in a row, lose to Bengals 31-10

It would have been pretty easy for the Cleveland Browns to just kind of pack it in this week. The final score makes it look like they did, but the Browns had a bit of fight in them.

Ndamukong Suh was supposed to be the final piece to Miami’s puzzle on defense. Getting rid of Jared Odrick and Randy Starks to make room for Suh seemed like a no-brainer (and it still does). Even though the team has only one sack, Suh hasn’t lost confidence in the teams ability. “People don’t give out sacks. They’re not free. So at the end of the day, you’ve got to go...

After being quite for most of the off-season, the Browns decided to add two 30+ year old free agents this off-season.
