Cleveland Browns Could Look to Oakland Raiders for Talent in Free Agency

It is no secret that the Cleveland Browns are hurting at the wide receiver position. With Josh Gordon suspended for the 2015 NFL season, the trio of Travis Benjamin, Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel are left wondering if they will have to do it alone again without a tall, legitimate red-zone threat. All three performed admirably this season, with very little help from the quarterback...

Browns 2015 Personnel Preview: Wide Receiver

I’m not intentionally trying to bum anyone out right now, but think about this: The only Browns quarterback under contract that wasn’t undrafted (Johnny Manziel) is in rehab for an indefinite amount of time. Jordan Cameron, the Browns best tight end, is a free agent. Josh Gordon, the team’s best receiving is suspended for the entire 2015 season, if not longer than that. If...

2015 NFL Free Agency: Wide Receivers on the Cleveland Browns Radar

The Cleveland Browns go into the 2015 offseason with four wide receivers under contract who saw significant playing time in 2014: Josh Gordon, Andrew Hawkins, Taylor Gabriel and Travis Benjamin.

Punt returns anything but special for this season's Browns

BEREA, Ohio -- Overall, since the Browns returned in 1999, they haven't been very good. However, the Browns have generally been good returning punts, if not excellent. Dennis Northcutt (2000-06) and Joshua Cribbs (2005-12) held the position down for all but the first season back. Cribbs went to the Pro Bowl for his prowess returning punts and kickoffs.
