  • Geauga sheriff prohibits deputies from working Browns games over protest during anthem

    CHARDON, Ohio -- The Geauga County Sheriff on Tuesday barred any of his deputies from working off-duty security at future Cleveland Browns games because of their protest during the national anthem. Sheriff Scott A. Hildenbrand in a memo to his employees posted on Facebook said the Browns protest, which came in response to President Donald Trump's statements that NFL players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired, was "disrespectful" to veterans and police officers alike. "I'm concerned when the main act stands in front of the crowd, before the game even starts, and commits a blatant disrespectful act...

    immediately after the regular season ends. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has already made the decision to fire coach Mike Pettine, multiple sources say, and it is likely general manager Ray Farmer will be shown the door, as well. Pettine leaves after just two seasons full of quarterback movement and a woeful defense. Farmer likely will leave despite never hiring his own head coach. Haslam has already laid the groundwork for the move, doing work on potential candidates and seeing who will be available to him. It ends a tumultuous tenure for Cleveland, filled with dysfunction, in-fighting, failed player acquisitions and...

    After 12 weeks of the NFL season, the New England Patriots are still the heavy favorite to win the Super Bowl. Using Nate Silver's "2015 NFL Predictions," a model that rates each team and then projects how the regular season and playoffs will play out, we can get a better sense of which teams are the true Super Bowl contenders. Heading into Week 13, the New England Patriots are still the favorite with a 28% chance to win the Super Bowl, down from 33% a week ago. The Carolina Panthers (20%) are the favorite in the NFC. In fact, according...

    God has a voodoo doll. It has a Cleveland Brown jersey on. And He stuck another pin in it Monday night. For Clevelanders, I don’t know how a loss can be more brutal than this one. Cleveland 27, Baltimore 27. Three seconds left, Browns lining up for the game-winning field goal. You’re on the verge of sweeping the team you hate the most, the despised Ravens, the team that you’ll always think was stolen from you and kept your city without football for three seasons. The kicker, Travis Coons, is 18-for-18 as a Brown. In another miserable year at the...

    Tied 27-27, the Browns lined up for a game-winning 50-yard field goal attempt. Kicker Travis Coons was a perfect 18-for-18 on the season entering the play so there was reason to be optimistic. Browns fan Matt Alberson was excited and ready to capture the moment. Except disaster struck and the Ravens ended up winning on a blocked kick touchdown return.

    Johnny Manziel lost his starting spot after cameras caught the quarterback partying during his bye week. Browns coach Mike Pettine called the behavior, which comes after an offseason trip to rehab, ‚Äúdisappointing‚ÄĚ and ‚Äúfrustrating.‚ÄĚ Manziel‚Äôs bye-week carousing spoils his national coming-out party previously scheduled for Monday night‚Äôs game against the banged-up Baltimore Ravens. Pettine announced on Tuesday Josh McCown will start the game at quarterback. TMZ spotted Manziel on Thursday at the RIO Rooftop & Restaurant nightclub in Austin, where he partied the evening away with friends. The Summit Rooftop Lounge, where he spent the evening boozing on champagne, served...
  • Browns now positioned to possibly make move for Marcus Mariota

    The signing of Dwayne Bowe may mean nothing in terms of the Cleveland Brownsí long, lost quarterback position. It may well be that the Browns intend to go into the 2015 season with Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel -- scary as that sounds. Then again, maybe the Browns are laying low for a major move -- a trade up to acquire Oregonís Marcus Mariota. With Bowe on the roster, the trade makes more sense than it did without him. Without Bowe, the Browns were in dire need of a receiver. With him (and with Brian Hartline), they can get by...

    Browns owner Jimmy Haslam claims he didnít know of Johnny Manzielís lifestyle when he drafted the former Heisman Trophy-winner last year. ďI donít know how much of Johnnyís personal life was known by everybody then,Ē Haslam told a press conference on Friday. Manziel currently sits in a rehabilitation facility to transition from his party lifestyle to a sober one. Manziel slipped to the 22nd pick in the 2014 draft based largely on the concerns that Haslam now suggests were largely unknown last spring. College Station police arrested the Texas A&M quarterback on alcohol-related charges after a late-night fight in 2012...

    The NFL suspended Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon for at least one year without pay on Tuesday for violating the leagueís policy on substance abuse. Gordonís suspension begins immediately, the NFL said in a statement. ďAs we have conveyed, we are disappointed to once again be at this point with Josh,Ē Browns general manager Ray Farmer said. ďThroughout his career, we have tried to assist him in getting support like we would with any member of our organization. Unfortunately, our efforts have not resonated with him. ďIt is evident that Josh needs to make some substantial strides to live...

    The head of the Cleveland Police Union is demanding an apology after Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins wore a shirt before Sunday's game that read, "Justice for Tamir Rice - John Crawford." Rice, a 12-year-old boy, died last month after he was shot by a Cleveland police officer who reportedly mistook his air gun for a real firearm. Crawford was shot and killed by police in August while holding an air rifle in a Wal-Mart.

    DETROIT -- Lions running back Reggie Bush, who has been outspoken about the protests in Ferguson, Missouri, continued his outspoken nature Sunday when he wore a shirt reading "I Can't Breathe" during pregame warm-ups Sunday. Bush wrote the message -- in black ink on his blue shirt -- signifying the last words of Eric Garner, the New York man who died while being placed in a chokehold as he was being arrested. Bush wore the shirt a day after Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose wore an "I Can't Breathe" T-shirt in pregame warm-ups prior to his team's game Saturday night...

    Rumor has it Rob Chudzinski (sic) will be fired as Browns coach after today's loss to Pittsburgh. IMHO, it's Lombardi and Banner that ought to be fired. Just saying. Five Pro-Bowler's plus one alternate, and an abysmal record...this tells me it's not the coach, it's the player personnel he was given to work with. Perhaps the Browns really could re-build, like KC did, but not if there is absolutely no stability to the program, and we have "back-stabbing crap-weasels" in charge of the draft/front office (quote from a friend - sums it up, check the history in C-town!)...

    People always throw out weird stuff surrounding their death ("When I die I want blah blah blah") but you rarely see people follow through on it. Not Scott E. Entsminger, a Browns fan who died at the age of 55 on July 4. Entsminger "was an accomplished musician, loved playing the guitar and was a member of the Old Fogies Band." He was also, per his obituary in the Columbus Dispatch, a "lifelong Cleveland Browns fan and season ticket holder."

    Ausar Walcott may not be as famous as Aaron Hernandez, but heís in a lot of trouble, too. The Cleveland Brownsí rookie linebacker turned himself in to Passaic (N.J.) police on Tuesday night to face charges of attempted murder. Walcott, who is from Hackensack, allegedly punched Derrick Jones, 24, in the head outside The Palace Gentlemanís Club early on Sunday morning. Jones, who lives in Manhattan, was rushed to Harlem Hospital Center. Jones remained hospitalized and in critical condition on Wednesday, authorities said.

    According to Daryl Ruiter of 92.3 The Fan, former Cleveland Browns linebacker David McMillan was shot and killed on Saturday: I should note that as of this post, no local Atlanta newspapers or television stations seem to be reporting the news; the only source so far appears to be Ruiter, so there is a slight chance that the report could be erroneous. If it stands as true, may McMillan rest in piece. UPDATE: Ruiter responded to our question by tweeting to us, "sadly my report is 100% true." McMillan was a 5th round pick by the Browns in 2005 and...
