    An off season review:

    The Browns came out of the gate swinging, acquiring Abdulai Adenjii in a Legacy Player acquisition that left ineligible franchises frustrated and salty. Adenjii, the fastest cornerback in HaW, immediately came in with 1 purpose: To become the #1 corner for the Cleveland Browns. Recognizing the potential in up and coming K'Waun Williams and the several years of veteran leadership in new acquisition Tramon Williams, the Browns were left with an embarrassment of riches in the CB position.

    Speaking of embarrassing CBs, 1st round draft pick Justin Gilbert was shipped after just 1 (horrible year) and a less than stellar pre season to the CB needy Cowboys. The Cowboys, having just acquired Christine Michael agreed to send the HB to Cleveland for Gilbert after securing a shocking trade for Lesean McCoy. Now with Michael and Turbin in the backfield, the Browns have a 2 Headed Monster with the ex Seattle running backs, and all Seattle got was FredEx. Ouch.

    In a surprising move, the Browns traded fellow cornerback Joe Haden in what was considered a blockbuster move. With their recent drafting of Mariota, the Titans shipped promising deep ball artist Zack Mettenberger to the Browns, along with a 2016 first round pick and a 2017 second round pick. Already being called "a legitimate franchise quarterback", the Browns organization is still hurting from the Haden deal - but when a chance to free up $10mil in cap space for a promising QB, along with a couple high value picks comes into play... You have to weigh your options.


    A week 1 review:

    The Factory of Sadness is alive folks, and it's mascot are the Cleveland Browns WRs. After dropping nearly 10 passes in the loss to the NY Jets, the Cleveland fan bases forgive Mettenbergers awful stat line. Only Gordon seemed to be able to hold on to a football thrown his way, and by the end of the 3rd Mettenberger and the coaching staff seemed to lose all faith in their passing attack, resorting to a chew clock style, no nonsense ground and pound to end the game with a sense of dignity.

    Mettenberger touched on some beautiful passes though, and a 29 yard scamper by Michael validated the organizations decision to trade for them in the offseason. With a little confidence in their WR core, however, the Browns immediately acquired Brian Quick from the Rams for a 4th round selection. This may not fix their troubles, but he's better than anything after Gordon.

    Next Week:

    The TN Titans.
