The Cleveland Browns have declined to pick up OLB Barkevious Mingo‘s fifth-year option on Monday, according to Ian Rapoport.

Mingo, 25, was the No. 6 overall pick back in 2013. He’s...

The Cleveland Browns are swinging for the fences and it’s a beautiful thing

The Cleveland Browns have been very, very bad for a very, very long time.  This is not a new story.  But what is new is what they are trying to do about it. Since being resurrected in 1999, the Browns have had enough rebuilding projects to have their own series on HGTV.  They’ve gone through seven general managers in that timespan including Dwight Clark, Butch Davis, Phil Savage...
