Michigan State running back LJ Scott didn’t last long with the Browns. Two days to be exact.

Scott has decided to leave the team and quit football, Dana Balash of WFMJ Sports reports.

Scott left school after playing only four regular-season games in 2018. He could have applied for a medical redshirt but opted against that after playing in the Spartans’ Redbox Bowl loss to Oregon.

He attended the Ravens’ rookie minicamp earlier this month.

Scott is the ninth-leading rusher in MSU history with 2,855 yards and scored 25 rushing touchdowns in his career. He also caught 43 passes for 403 yards and two touchdowns during his time in East Lansing.

    I agree, I wouldnt want to get whompped by the Ravens, Steelers and Bengals all season.

  3. The Browns have too many egos on their team. I think they will have locker room issues when they start losing. They will be the next Raiders team that thought they were better than they were, and got a rude awakening the next year. #HTTR

  4. This isn’t going to be those 20hr weeks of football these guys will see in the NFL like they did in college, now it’s 50-60hrs/wk or more and a lot of them will find out they just can’t handle it at this level, PERIOD!

    It’s a completely different animal in the NFL!

  5. He’s not the first college kid who graduated, got a job and realized they didn’t really want to spend time doing what they’ve trained for the last 4 years. You can’t play the game at this level without really wanting to do it. He’s got some great memories and it’s time to move on. I wish him good luck with the rest of his life, and I hope he finds something he loves to do and helps other people.

  6. He may change his mind after he goes out to try to find a real job and actually work for a living like every other person on this site.

  7. Bummer. I thought he had a real chance. Heart wasn’t in it. though. Good lick to you. LJ.
