At the age of 14, T.J. Carrie had to have open-heart surgery, but that didn’t stop him from living his dream. He ended up being drafted by the Oakland Raiders and in 2018, he joined the Cleveland Browns on a four-year contract.
Now, Carrie is using his past as a way to influence those around him. On Thursday, Carrie shared his story with a Browns fan who is facing his own scare of a heart condition.
Carrie showed the 10-year old boy the scar on his chest and reminded him that no condition can ever truly hold someone back.

"“I don’t want you to ever worry about that, okay? ‘Cause you can still accomplish and do everything you want to do in life,” Carrie says. “So, I want you to keep dreaming, and make sure you dream as big as possible, okay?”"
These are the kinds of stories that need to be posted on the front page of every media outlet. While the bad press gets all the attention, there are far too many wonderful stories such as this being buried. T.J. Carrie took the time out of his day to speak to a young fan who is facing some real trauma in his life. And in doing so, he showed him that he can overcome anything he faces. Carrie deserves a lot of praise for this one.
"“Now we know why Callaway has been relegated to the second- and third-team reps behind Derrick Willies and others. According to new Browns offensive coordinator Todd Monken, Callaway showed up to camp out of shape.”"
At first, it seemed as though the staff was thrilled with Antonio Callaway when he arrived at camp, but that may not have been the case. The second-year player has been working with the reserves and it seems as though we know why now.
“After playing for three teams over a career that spanned 20 seasons, former NFL kicker Phil Dawson has decided to retire.
"The 44-year-old made the announcement Thursday while also announcing that he would be signing a one-day contract with Cleveland so that he would officially be able to retire as a member of the Browns.”"
Phil Dawson had quite the career with the Browns, and some even hoped he would return this past season. Best of luck to him in retirement — it’s well deserved.
Browns fans love it when a local boy makes the team and that’s exactly what Kyle Kalis is trying to do. Not only is the undrafted Michigan product trying to make the team, but he’s also aiming for a potential starting spot.
