No. 9 – Donte’ Stallworth, Wide Receiver
The Cleveland Browns went through an interesting phase of bringing in veteran receivers to try and get the offense clicking. Donte’ Stallworth was one of those experiments that were nowhere close to working.
In just one season, Stallworth had 17 catches on 45 targets for 170 yards. This just one season after he had nearly 700 yards receiving for the New England Patriots.
After totaling over 2,000 yards in his first six seasons, the Browns were just a year late on adding the speedy receiver. That’s happened far too often.
No. 8 – DeShone Kizer, Quarterback
Another one-and-done quarterback for the Cleveland Browns was DeShone Kizer, the second-round pick from Notre Dame. After putting on a show in the preseason, it became apparent quickly the vanilla defenses from then weren’t the same in the regular season.
Kizer led the Browns to 0-15 that season and threw a league-leading 22 interceptions. Many believed that Kizer got the short end of the stick, but Packers fans quickly found out how bad he was in 2018.
I’m not sure how this guy had so much success in college, because he was as bad a quarterback as I can remember the Browns having, and trust me, there have been some bad ones.
