BEREA — Rookie nose tackle Danny Shelton expects more out of himself. So do the Browns. The No. 12 pick in the draft hasn’t made the desired impact through six games. He’s started them all and has five solo tackles, including one for a loss, and nine assists. “Personally, I haven’t done what I want Read More…

Browns: Pettine says top 4 WRs ‘entrenched,’ Bowe on outside looking in

BEREA — Coach Mike Pettine doesn’t expect receiver Dwayne Bowe’s role to increase anytime soon. He’s a distant fifth on the team’s depth chart. Bowe has been inactive four of six weeks, including the last two when he’s been healthy following a hamstring injury. He’s been targeted twice with no catches. He signed a two-year, Read More…

Browns analysis: It seems bleak now, but good times may be near

I feel like taking a break from 911 calls, dash-cam videos, NFL investigations and personal accountability. So I offer a few non-Johnny Manziel thoughts following another what-might’ve-been finish at FirstEnergy Stadium. The bright side One play can make such a huge difference in a game and to the mindset of a fan base. If the Read More…

Manziel’s status for game unchanged despite police run-in; Pettine declines comment

CLEVELAND — An incident that received police attention didn’t affect Johnny Manziel’s status with the Browns for the game Sunday against the Denver Broncos. Manziel didn’t take a snap in Cleveland’s 26-23 overtime loss, but he was active and the only backup to starting quarterback Josh McCown. Manziel was questioned by Avon police Monday after Read More…

Browns waste plenty of chances in OT loss to Broncos

CLEVELAND — The chances kept lining up for the Browns. A two-game winning streak, the end of a 25-year drought against Denver, a victory over an undefeated team and a new-and-improved outlook on the season stood one play away. One by one, the chances disappeared. A missed 2-point conversion. A dumb interception from quarterback Josh Read More…

BEREA — Weird. Stiff. Different. Goofy. A new set of dwarfs for Snow White? Nope. The adjectives used to describe the running style of Browns tight end Gary Barnidge. “I’ve been told multiple things,” said Barnidge, who’s caught and run himself into early Pro Bowl discussion. “I don’t mind at all. It works for me.” Read More…
