Cleveland Browns select Jared Goff in Todd McShay’s latest mock draft

"The 2016 NFL Draft will be open with the first round on April 28 in Chicago with the Cleveland Browns holding the second overall selection. With the news this week that the Browns may be in the market for another young quarterback, ESPN’s Todd McShay released his second mock draft of the season and, with that second pick of the first round, McShay has the Browns selecting Cal quarterback Jared Goff."

What if the Cleveland Browns had won Super Bowl XXI?

"As Super Bowl 50 is upon us, and for the fiftieth time our beloved Browns are absent from the biggest game in America’s most popular sport, I began to think: What if? What if John Elway never completed the fateful “Drive” in 1987 at old Cleveland Municipal Stadium?"

NFL News:

Tim Tebow wants Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl (Predominantly Orange)

"In case you didn’t know it already, Tim Tebow is just a stand up guy. The Broncos parted ways with their former first round pick because they landed Peyton Manning in free agency (back in 2012) and they may have parted ways at some point after that anyway, but Tebow still roots for the Broncos."

"The NFL has been mentioned in the media negatively for several years. Whether its DeflateGate or the NFL referee lockout in 2012, there has always been something to talk about. A major battle they are dealing with now is the consequences of the deadly degenerative disease C.T.E."

With NFL Rams gone, St. Louis still stuck with stadium debt (Reuters)

"The National Football League’s Rams left behind more than bitterness when the team ditched St. Louis for Los Angeles last month – it left a stadium saddled with about $144 million in debt and maintenance costs. Taxpayers will now shoulder the remaining payments for the Edward Jones Dome with only the help of revenue from tractor pulls, volleyball tournaments, concerts and the like."
