Cleveland Browns: Re-evaluating the 2010 NFL Draft

"Anyone who has watched the Cleveland Browns for more than 10 minutes knows that one of the biggest problems plaguing the team since its return in 1999 is the continual turnover among the coaching staff and front office. That turnover is due, in large part, by the team’s inability to string together successful drafts, repeatedly missing year after year on players who are supposed to form the core of the team."

Johnny Manziel: Lamenting a lost talent

"The countdown until Johnny Manziel is released by the Cleveland Browns continues, and it is something that will end one of the more interesting, but also sad, sagas in Cleveland sports history. Manziel has ruined his chances of playing for the Browns, with most of the city wanting him gone as soon as possible. He came in as a high-profile draft pick, only to ruin his reputation early on and continue to make it worse until, well, it gets worse every day."

Can Hue Jackson take the Cleveland Browns to the playoffs in 2016?

"Every year the NFL sees teams that missed the playoffs the previous season find their way into the postseason. In 2015, that list included the Kansas City Chiefs, Houston Texans, Washington Redskins and Minnesota Vikings as clubs that made the jump to playoff status. That cycle is sure to repeat itself this fall, leaving fans to wonder if the Cleveland Browns will be one of those teams joining in on the fun of playoff football."

Cleveland Browns: Is anyone worth the franchise tag?

"The Cleveland Browns are focusing a lot of attention on the upcoming 2016 NFL Draft as team officials work to determine if there is a franchise-altering player to select with the No. 2 overall pick. In addition to setting up the draft board, executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown and head coach Hue Jackson have to determine which of the team’s free agents to retain and which to let walk out the door."

Browns: There’s many options with the 32nd pick (Factory of Sadness)

"We all know that the Cleveland Browns have the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. To no surprise, we all seem to suspect that, barring a surprise free agent quarterback signing, the second overall pick will be a quarterback. That signal-caller will either be North Dakota State’s Carson Wentz, California’s Jared Goff, or Memphis’ Paxton Lynch."

NFL News:

Report: ESPN tells employees not to discuss Peyton Manning story (FanSided)

"On Saturday, Shaun King published a story in the New York Daily News detailing sexual assault allegations that were leveled against Peyton Manning when he was at the University of Tennessee in 1996."

Broncos’ Aqib Talib fined $26,044 for Super Bowl 50 penalties (ESPN)

"Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib’s bonus for a Super Bowl win won’t be as big as his teammates’ this time around. While all of the Broncos players earned a $102,000 bonus as part of the 24-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, Talib was fined $26,044 for two of his penalties in the game."

Texans RB Arian Foster: ‘I watch zero football’ (CBS Sports)

"Arian Foster came out of nowhere in 2010 to rush for 1,616 yards. Over the next two seasons, he finished with 1,224 and 1,424 yards and established himself as one of the NFL’s best young running backs. But as often happens when the carries mount, Foster succumbed to injuries; a bad back limited him to eight games in 2013, and he saw action in four games in 2015 before tearing his Achilles tendon."
