Josh Gordon arrested for DWI
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was arrested on a DWI charge over the weekend, adding to his long list of off-field issues that have plagued him since college. Some are calling for the Browns to release Gordon, while others are arguing that would be a meaningless move as he is likely to be in rehab all season anyway and would be quickly re-signed by another team for the 2015 season.
What should the Browns do? Do you come at the topic with experience dealing with individuals suffering from substance abuse issues?
Will Manziel be a distraction?
Johnny Manziel has returned to the Cleveland Browns to participate in OTAs -- and, yeah, there are questions. A major one: Does his party-filled weekend in Las Vegas mean he isn't totally committed to football? He says he is. The Browns don't seem to be bothered by his actions in his off-time. Are you?
Manziel goes 22nd to Browns
After Jadeveon Clowney went No. 1 overall to the Houston Texans, the story of draft night was Johnny Manziel's fall. Expected to be in play as early as No. 3, Manziel watched Blake Bortles go in that slot to the Jacksonville Jaguars ... then saw the Cleveland Browns pass on him twice ... then sat by as the Dallas Cowboys took an offensive lineman at No. 16 ... until finally the Browns moved up to select the former Heisman Trophy winner out of Texas A&M. What's your take on the situation?
Manziel or Clowney for No. 1 pick?
Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay released mock drafts (both Insider) on Thursday. From the look of things, there is still quite a bit of fluidity on many boards. Kiper says Johnny Manziel will go No. 1 overall to his home-state Houston Texans, and Jadeveon Clowney joining the Jacksonville Jaguars at No. 3. McShay? He sees Clowney heading to Texas and Manziel dropping to the Oakland Raiders at No. 5.
The two experts couldn't agree on the landing spots for the other top three QBs, either: Blake Bortles (fourth to the Cleveland Browns according to McShay, eighth to the Minnesota Vikings per Kiper) and Teddy Bridgewater (McShay says third to Jacksonville, Kiper fourth to Cleveland). In fact, they agree on only one of the top five picks: No. 2, where the St. Louis Rams will (likely) stick with Sam Bradford at quarterback and choose Auburn offensive lineman Greg Robinson. What do you think should happen? What will Houston do at No. 1?
