We are truly living in the NFL bizarro world. I mean, to type the title of this rant is borderline insane.
The Cleveland Browns are making moves. Let’s re-read what I just typed: “the friggin Cleveland Browns are MAKING MOVES”.
The same Browns — the ones I’ve derisively dubbed the “Brownies” the last several seasons — have not only been aggressive, they put the rest of the league on notice (again, I can’t believe I just typed that).
Trading for Odell Beckham, Jr. and giving up a first and a third-round pick. Signing controversial, but HIGHLY talented, Kareem Hunt.
Pair them with Cleveland’s young offensive stars such as Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb, Duke Johnson and David Njoku who are only going to get better. And last I checked, the Browns are still young and talented on defense.
What I’m about to say may get my ass drug-tested: the Cleveland Browns are going to be a force in the AFC North.
My beloved Pittsburgh Steelers are so diva-like and dysfunctional, they make the Kardashians blush. The Baltimore Ravens are getting gutted on defense (though it looks like they’ll sign Earl Thomas to a free agent deal). And who the hell knows what’s going on here in Cincinnati?
This is, by far and away, the weirdest NFL offseason I’ve ever experienced in my football-watching life…
