The Browns need to make 15 roster moves by this Tuesday to get down to the initial, 75-man limit. That will be followed by another 22 transactions after Thursday’s final preseason game, to bring the roster down to its 53-man, regular season limit. The Browns will almost certainly have two roster exemptions heading into the season, with suspensions to wide receivers Marlon Moore (one game) and Josh Gordon (heaven only knows) looming. They can also make a little bit of room by moving injured players to various reserve lists. With three preseason games in the books, and roles coming into focus, it seemed like the perfect time for a quick roster prediction heading into the Tuesday’s cutdown. Injury designations and “first cuts” represent the moves that will take place by the 4:00 PM Eastern time, August 26th deadline: Read the rest of this entry »

With the quarterback situation decided for now, the Browns went into their third preseason game looking to establish some continuity on offense, and sort out some roles and roster spots. But with five cornerbacks shelved with injuries for a second straight game, the Browns defense had trouble getting off the field on third downs, and some familiar issues reared their heads on both sides of the ball. The game yielded an ugly final score and plenty of negatives, but still, some positivity rested beneath the surface. Here’s a look at pluses, minuses and the questions that remain with one practice game left before the results start counting. Read the rest of this entry »

Game Two of the preseason was supposed to decide the Browns quarterback competition, but neither Brian Hoyer, nor rookie Johnny Manziel could convince Head Coach Mike Pettine to finalize his decision; and as of this posting, the Week One starter against Pittsburgh remains up in the air. The most noteworthy thing either quarterback did was when Manziel tossed a middle finger in the direction of the Washington bench, setting off a barrage of hot takes that scorched the internet all day Tuesday. The ashes are almost all swept up now, so here’s a look at what went right, what went wrong, and where a few players stand midway through the preseason. Read the rest of this entry »

College Station, Texas has been the epicenter of FBS football for the past two seasons as Johnny Manziel took the nation by storm. Texas A&M’s Heisman-winning quarterback left two years of eligibility on the table and entered the 2014 NFL Draft, where he was chosen 22nd overall by the Cleveland Browns. Aggies Head Coach Kevin Sumlin is rid of the Manziel circus, but has also lost one of the best offensive players in college football history. Faced with an incredibly tough act to follow, sophomore Kenny Hill takes over at quarterback, where he and a veteran offensive line will need to score enough to compensate for a defense that allowed 30 points or more in eight of the Aggies’ 13 games. Here’s a look at the top, draft-eligible prospects returning for Texas A&M this season.

Long time coach Brett Bielema left Wisconsin for the SEC after the 2012 season, and was replaced by former Utah State Head Coach Gary Anderson. Under their new leader, the Badgers started 3-2 – both gut-wrenching defeats – before salvaging their season with a six-game winning streak. In the end, Wisconsin missed a chance for its third straight Big Ten Championship, and wound up losing the Capital One Bowl to South Carolina. Thanks to conference realignment, the Badgers no longer have to contend with Ohio State or Penn State in their division, and the schedule sets up nicely for another berth in the Big Ten title game. Here’s a look at the top, draft-eligible prospects who try to make that a reality this coming season.
