Tyvis Powell Heading To The Browns

Tyvis Powell Senior Bowl

Tyvis Powell is a second year player from the Ohio State Buckeyes now in the NFL, but he will be heading back to his home state, Cleveland to play for the Browns. Powell, an undrafted free agent, was waived by the Seattle Seahawks just prior to the postseason. However, being without a team was temporary because shortly after, Powell who is from Bedford, was claimed by the Cleveland Browns off waivers.

The NFL draft of 2016 had some great moments; however, Powell who is a fan favorite of Ohio State sat and waited for his name to be called as each round went by. Powell who plays safety, did not show any remorse and regrouped. He took calls from other teams in the league.

Tyvis Powell then signed with the Seattle Seahawks in the Legion of Boom. In 2016, he did not get much time on the field, but as a Buckeye he was able to get some snaps on special teams. Powell played in eight games in which he gathered three special team tackles, despite being on the active roster for the season.

The Buckeye‘s fans will miss Powell who is heading to Seattle, which is his home state. He hopes to get a spot on this 53-person team.  September is a while away but Powell needs to get through the mini-camps and OTAs before he is considered for a spot on the final roster.

Cleveland Browns Training Camp Stays In Berea

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Columbus no longer getting promised training camp as Browns back out of the deal.

A deal that would have seen the Cleveland Browns training camp relocated to Columbus in 2018 falls through as the Browns back out.

The deal would have included new football fields, and a new and bigger Tuttle Park rec center. On Wednesday, the Browns informed Franklin County and the city that they would not be moving forward.

According to a statement from the team’s spokesman, Peter John-Baptiste, the organization felt it was in everyone’s best interest to remain in Berea for the immediate future.

The turned down deal would have cost Franklin County and the Browns $5 million each with the city covering the estimated $15-17 million remaining.

According to a statement given by Columbus director of Recreation and Parks, Tony Collins, the goal of the project was to work with partners in a way that maximized programs for their residents and facilities, but they were unable to move forward with the project.

While the deal was still in its early stages earlier this month, it did appear to be on its way to coming to fruition. It is unclear what caused the Browns to walk away, but they did reaffirm their commitment to stay in Berea, a suburb of Cleveland.

This is the second deal this year to fall through that would see the Browns relocate outside of Cleveland.

Cleveland Browns Josh McCown Back In Practice

Tags: , , ,

 

Browns QB Practices Despite Injury

Josh McCown started the season as Robert Griffin III‘s backup. He ended up starting game 2 on the season but suffered a broken collarbone in the first half of the game versus the rival Baltimore Ravens. He ended up finishing the game but has not appeared in a game for Cleveland since.

This week, the veteran QB returned to practice. He has his eyes set on the goal of winning back the starting spot at quarterback for the Browns. The Browns are 0-5 on the season so far.

So far this season, 5 different players have appeared at the quarterback position for the Browns. The original starter, Griffin, was injured in game 1. Then McCown started game 2. Since then rookie Cody Kessler, wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, and career journeyman Charlie Whitehurst have all appeared at the position for the Browns. It is important to note that Pryor was drafted out of college by the Raiders to play quarterback after starring at the position in college at Ohio State.

Kessler was injured in week 5 against the New England Patriots. It was originally thought that he had broken bones in his check, but X-rays revealed that to be not true. The quarterback situation this year is a perfect representation of the Browns situation at the position since the team’s inception in 1999.

Cleveland Browns Terrelle Pryor Can Do It All

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

Terrelle Pryor began his college football career at Ohio State as the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes.  It makes sense that he now finds himself in Cleveland with the Browns.  He recently showed his skills in receiving, rushing, and passing against the Miami Dolphins team. This player can do it all! And the Browns need him to do it all until they have a solid option at quarterback.

Pryor Switches to Wide Receiver

He boldly switched positions only a year ago to keep his NFL career going.  This receiver is a valuable player because he recently gained 21 yards rushing, 144 yards receiving, and 35 yards passing.  He is the first player since Billy Kilmer in 1964 to catch three passes, throw three passes and carry three times.  This is an impressive feat for any player.

Terrelle Pryor is a valuable asset to the floundering Cleveland Browns (0-3).  Since he is over six feet tall and can run at lightning speed, he adds depth to the team.  The Browns are currently starting their third string quarterback and it is entirely possible that Pryor may be passing even more in the upcoming games.

Hue Jackson is the head coach for the Browns and has created several packages to better utilize the unique skill-set that Pryor brings to the table.  It will be interesting to see what number 11 will accomplish next.  His teammates love his positive attitude and he is also a fan favorite in Ohio.

Browns Announce Five Captains For 2016 Season

Tags: , , , ,

The Browns announced who their five captains will be on Wednesday. They decided to go with Robert Griffin III, Demario Davis, Joe Thomas, Tank Carder and Joe Haden.

The 2016 season looks like it is going to be a fantastic once for the Browns. Joe Thomas is the chosen left tackle, and Joe Haden is the chosen cornerback. Demario Davis is going to be the quarter back, and Griffin will be a linebacker. Tank Carder is going to be the special teams standout. The Browns seem to have a mix of champions going on.

The Browns will have these captains for an entire season. This is the first time in Browns history that they have done that.

The head coach, Hugh Jackson, said that he was excited about having these gentlemen chosen as the five captains. He said that he knows they will change the culture, and he looks forward to it. Jackson also looks forward to changing the team’s fortune.

Griffin is going to have an amazing time, as he has not started since 2014. He is coming from spending our wonderful seasons with the Redskins.

Griffin said that he was proud that the coach and players trusted him enough to put the Cleveland letters on his jersey.

Haden has had seven glorious seasons with the Browns. He says that he is extremely excited about being a captain. It’s an important role to him that he cherishes and wants to continue to grow and lead the team by example.

An Unforgettable Night For Robert Griffin III As Browns Lose, Fantasy Value Set To Peak

Tags: , , , ,

Robert Griffin III was at his stellar best in the second week of preseason matches. Now, let’s take a peak into what this means for the fantasy league.

The quarterback for Cleveland Browns gave a plausible performance despite them losing 24-13 to the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday evening. What better way to extend his recent form than to score two touchdowns, and complete 6 out of 8 passes from 96 yards out. Three scrambles rushed for 36 yards without a single turnover was a considerable improvement from the first preseason week. At the beginning of the first quarter he proved why he is one of the highlights of the forthcoming season by throwing a flighted deep ball to get Terrelle Pryor for a 50-yard touchdown. Almost soon after he topped that off with an elegantly executed touchdown throw for Gary Barnidge from 29-yards.

Hue Jackson –the Brown’s coach- has shown immense dedication towards RGIII, and it paid off two-fold as the team morale was boosted. On the flipside, seeing flashbacks of the prominent rookie RGII once was reminded the team of how his new-found form could propel their prospects for the upcoming season. But RGII Achilles Heel is of course, inconsistency. So expect him to be quarterback option 2 at present.
