Tyvis Powell Heading To The Browns

Tags: , , , , , , ,

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.

Jonathan Cooper

Jonathan Cooper is taking a new step in his career starting this week as the Right Guard for the Cleveland Browns.

Despite this new improvement in his career, Jonathan Cooper’s journey has not been an easy one. During this last year, he broke a bone in his leg and was thus placed on the injured reserve list, while working for the Arizona Cardinals in 2013. Then he was traded off to the New England Patriots in March, and then finally was claimed by the Browns.

Now Cooper, a 6’2″, 302 lbs man, will be replacing John Greco who was put on reserve for injuring his foot last week.

“It’s a great opportunity,” Cooper said. This is the time for Cooper to show his teammates what he is capable of.

Cleveland O-line Coach, Hal Hunter, said concerning Cooper, “He is athletic. He is smart. He is tough. Coach Hunters views this misfortune, as a new opportunity for Jonathan Cooper.

Coach Hue Jackson is looking forward to seeing what Jonathan Cooper, “is capable of doing,” and shares Coach Hunter’s sentiments saying, “This is what this league is about, a chance, an opportunity, and when you get it you have to make the most of it.”

This is Cooper’s first time being on a team that currently has No Wins. Football fans everywhere are looking forward to seeing Jonathan Cooper, take his next step as Cleveland Browns, Right Guard.

Revis Says Pryor Is ‘One Of The Best Athletes’ In NFL

Tags: , ,

This week was quite the week for celebrity back scratching. Darrelle Revis stood up for Terrell Pryor shortly after Pryor stood up for him in the midst of criticism.

Revis praised Pryor by saying that he is one of the best NFL athletes to date. He states the fact that Pryor seemed to flawlessly switch positions as his reason for so supporting him. Revis went on to say that he was happy to see Pittsburgh guys excelling.

Pryor started the player code when he defending Revis through a whole lot of criticism about his speed reduction as a 31-year-old player. Terrelle Pryor said that Revis still had what it took to lock things down.

All praise aside, Revis is correct about Pryor’s ability. Not many people can make such a massive position switch and excel at it like Pryor did. Hue Jackson made a smart move when he made the decision to keep this person around.

Pryor has excellent standings at this moment. He is leading the team in areas such as touchdowns, yards and much more. He is a good  player, and he is solid where he stands. Pryor has proven to be a true diamond in the rough.
