Is it finally time for the Browns to trade Joe Thomas?

With the Browns at 0-5 and the trade deadline 17 days away, it’s time to fire up the Annual Joe Thomas Trade Rumors. “I’m surprised it hasn’t started already,” Thomas said during a visit last month to PFT Live. “I’m sure you’ve been stirring the pot a little bit. No, I look forward to that trade [more]

Week Six injury report roundup

Week Six kicked off on Thursday with an Eagles win and it continues with 12 more games on Sunday, which means that the 24 teams in those games submitted their final injury reports of the week on Friday. Questionable players are uncertain to play, doubtful players are unlikely to play and out should be self-explanatory. Players [more]

Joe Thomas: I’ve never seen a player that plays like Myles Garrett

In May, Browns left tackle Joe Thomas said that he was enjoying the process of helping defensive end Myles Garrett learn the ropes in the NFL. Helping a rookie is nothing new for Thomas, who has seen plenty of them since joining the Browns in 2007. Garrett isn’t like those other rookies, however. Garrett made [more]

Browns receiver adjust to more “touch” passes from Kevin Hogan

The Browns have made a quarterback change. And it definitely will be different for the offense. “Every quarterback throws it differently,” receiver Kenny Britt told reporters on Thursday. “[Kevin] Hogan has a little bit more touch. [DeShone] Kizer is going out there and it is a straight laser.” Britt explained that some throws require touch, [more]

Jadeveon Clowney out of practice for second straight day

The Texans defense took a pair of big hits last Sunday night when defensive end J.J. Watt and linebacker Whitney Mercilus suffered season-ending injuries. Another key piece of the unit is also dealing with an injury. Linebacker Jadeveon Clowney missed his second straight day of practice on Thursday while dealing with a knee issue. Clowney [more]

Hue Jackson doesn’t want to talk about not drafting Deshaun Watson

The fact that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson remained on the board through 11 picks could get employees from anywhere from one to 11 teams fired, sooner or later. Given that the Browns passed on Watson twice, they’ll be facing even more scrutiny for the failure to select the quarterback they’ll face on Sunday. Understandably, coach Hue [more]

Hue Jackson defends the Browns’ “No. 5 defense in all of football”

Browns coach Hue Jackson defended his defense today, saying it’s fifth in the NFL. He was right in one narrow sense, but wrong in the assessment that really matters. “If I’m not mistaken, this is the No. 5 defense in all of football,” Jackson said. Technically, Jackson is correct that the Browns rank No. 5 [more]

DeShone Kizer wants starting job back: I don’t play this game to sit on bench

Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer knows Hue Jackson is “completely riding with me still,” but that doesn’t make his benching any easier. Kizer will sit as Kevin Hogan becomes the team’s 28th starting quarterback since 1999. But Kizer doesn’t plan on standing for Jackson’s decision for long. “I don’t play this game to sit on [more]

Kevin Hogan will be Browns’ 28th starting quarterback since 1999

The Browns will turn to Kevin Hogan as their starting quarterback on Sunday, showing once again that there’s no place for quarterback turnover — and turnovers — like Cleveland. With DeShone Kizer leading the NFL in interceptions, he’ll take a seat on Sunday against the Texans after five games as the starter. That means it’s [more]

DeShone Kizer feels Hue Jackson’s still “completely riding with me”

Browns coach Hue Jackson didn’t do much to hide the fact that the team was benching quarterback DeShone Kizer for this week’s game against the Texans when he spoke to the media on Monday and he made the change to Kevin Hogan official on Wednesday. That was a pretty stark change for Jackson, who had [more]

Desperation descends on Cleveland

I’d love to know how the conversation went between Browns coach Hue Jackson and former (for now) starting quarterback DeShone Kizer regarding Sunday’s game at Houston. Here’s a wild guess (with some sarcasm included) as to how Jackson explained the decision to keep Kizer on the bench for what would have been Deshaun vs. DeShone [more]

Browns bench DeShone Kizer, Kevin Hogan to start on Sunday

The Browns have made a change at quarterback. Cleveland coach Hue Jackson has decided to bench rookie DeShone Kizer and start Kevin Hogan on Sunday against the Texans. “I’ve made the decision to start Kevin this week,” Jackson said. “We’ve liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he’s been in [more]

Browns release Matt McCants with injury designation

The Browns released offensive lineman Matt McCants from injured reserve with an injury designation. He was placed on the team’s injured reserve list on Aug. 23. McCants injured an ankle against the Giants during the team’s second preseason game Aug. 21.  He joined the Browns as an unrestricted free agent this offseason. The Giants made [more]

Roger Goodell: We need to move past anthem controversy

During a conference call on Tuesday, NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said that discussions about the national anthem would be “front and center on the agenda” for next week’s league meetings. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo to top team executives and presidents on Tuesday expressing the same and also outlining some of what will [more]
