Manziel: It's really me versus the playbook right now

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel says he's competing against the team's playbook more than Brian Hoyer. Manziel admitted the learning curve is steeper than expected and his inconsistent play the first week of training camp is largely due to him still trying to figure out what the play is and all the functions within that play. "It's really me...

Cleveland Browns: Josh Gordon Didn't Exhale

We all remember when former President Bill Clinton famously said that he didn't inhale when referring to a question regarding his past marijuana use.  It was the punchline of many jokes for a while but I'm not sure Josh Gordon's camp saying the same thing in a way will be the brunt of too many jokes for that long. Gordon's legal team plans to use the second hand...

Josh Gordon has reportedly passed 'at least 70 drug tests'

We found out recently that Josh Gordon hired Richard Sherman’s lawyer to help handle his appeal with the NFL. In that case Maurice Suh called into question the specimen collection process and created doubt around the “he-said, he-said” case between the player and the collector.

Josh Gordon could get off on a technicality

This is a rumor that hasn’t even reached the Twittersphere but if something of this magnitude escapes the lips of Chris Mortensen, it’s worth getting excited about. Mortensen let it slip on NFL Live on ESPN that there are people in the league that think Gordon can get out of his year long suspension due to a technicality.

Without Josh Gordon, Anthony Armstrong may be the Browns’ most important receiver

As the offseason progresses more and more, the reality begins to set in day-by-day that the Browns must go all of next season, or at least the majority, without star wide receiver Josh Gordon. Therefore, someone (Dear God someone), must step up and at least make his absence less noticeable, because no one player will completely make-up his stats. But, the $100 million question that...

Jason Pinkston was not in camp yesterday with the Browns. As the day wore on and as media asked media relations folks first, coach Mike Pettine second and GM Ray Farmer third with very little comment, it turned into a small issue.
