Top 5: Cleveland Browns Hairdos   5. Connor Shaw-QB: Ok, I know what you’re thinking…”BUT HE’S BALD.” Yes, I understand that, but he’s just so freaking bald to the point where it’s actually impressive at this point.

Top-5 Browns players who need to get paid

5. Travis Benjamin Benjamin is one of the most explosive players on the Browns’ roster and he has the talent and potential to become the next great return man in Cleveland. He’s not a very big guy (5’10 and 175 lbs), but he’s got speed that makes most other NFL players unbelievably jealous (to the tune of a 4.31 40-yard dash). With the Josh Cribbs era well over, I think...
