Saturday Dawg Chow: Browns news (8/18/18) - Postby liny195 » 08 Nov 2018, 10:05


Cleveland Browns:Browns still evaluating fit with Dez Bryant (clevelandbrowns.com) - The Browns hosted Dez Byrant on a visit as they continue to 鈥媍ourt the veteran wide receiver.鈥?The former Cowboys star visited the team’s facility Thursday as the two sides determine whether the pairing would make a good fit.Cleveland’s shot to join the “biggest turnaround ever club” (ESPN) - The Cleveland Browns are surely hoping to pull off a ‘99 Colts or an ‘08 Dolphins. Those are the only two teams since 1970 that have made a 10-win improvement from one year to the next. And while a 10-win jump from the hapless Cleveland Browns Womens T-Shirt , zero-win 2017 campaign seems like a near impossibility, there is certainly some preseason buzz that this Browns team could at least win some games in 2018. And the ”Hard Knocks” bump has barely even kicked in!Denzel Ward, Jarvis Landry fined for penalties in preseason opener (ohio.com) - Browns players Denzel Ward and Jarvis Landry were fined by the NFL for unsportsmanlike conduct in last week’s 20-10, preseason-opening win over the New York Giants. Ward was docked $10,026. Landry was fined $13,369.NFL:How Isaiah Wynn’s injury affects Patriots offensive line (NESN) - If it wasn’t already apparent, the New England Patriots were wise to trade for offensive tackle Trent Brown. Brown has looked powerful with surprising agility in training camp and preseason as the Patriots’ starting left tackle, and it’s clear now he’ll be in that role all season, assuming good health. Patriots first-round pick Isaiah Wynn, who was receiving reps at left tackle and right tackle in training camp Cleveland Browns Hats , reportedly suffered a season-ending injury Thursday night when he tore his Achilles in New England’s preseason win over the Philadelphia Eagles.Seahawks release Marcus Smith for personal reasons (Seattle Times) - Marcus Smith entered training camp three weeks ago expected to play a key role on the Seahawks’ defensive line this season — particularly as a pass rusher, one of the team’s biggest question marks. Friday, his contract was terminated under somewhat mysterious circumstances.Who are the NFL’s true franchise quarterbacks? (NFL.com) - When Jalen Ramsey shared his thoughts with GQ Magazine on the current crop of NFL quarterbacks, he probably didn’t expect to set the Twitterverse on fire. Or maybe he did. When it comes to expressing opinions, Ramsey isn’t exactly sheepish.Nick Foles reportedly gets good news about shoulder (CBS Sports) - The Philadelphia Eagles are probably relieved that quarterback Nick Foles avoided a serious injury during Thursday night’s preseason contest against the Patriots. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, tests showed that Foles’ shoulder injury is “minor” and the Eagles “don’t expect any prolonged recovery.” The Seattle Seahawks are expected to sign linebacker Mychal Kendricks to a one-year contract despite his recent guilty plea on insider trading charges.Two people with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Thursday that Kendricks' agreement is expected to be finalized in time for him to join the Seahawks for their Week 2 Game at Chicago. They spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the signing.ESPN first reported Kendricks' deal with the Seahawks.Kendricks signed a one-year contract with the Cleveland Browns in June after winning a Super Bowl title last season with the Philadelphia Eagles. Kendricks pleaded guilty last week to insider trading charges in Philadelphia. His sentencing is expected in January.The Browns released him Aug. 29, after the charges were filed. While Seattle is signing Kendricks to bolster its depth at linebacker, it's unclear how long he might play for the Seahawks because the NFL has yet to impose any discipline.NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the situation is under review and Kendricks is currently allowed to sign and participate in activities, including games.Seattle's reasoning is the need for depth. Seattle played the opener without starting linebacker K.J. Wright due to minor knee surgery in late August, and All-Pro linebacker Bobby Wagner was an unexpected addition to the Seahawks injury report on Thursday with a groin injury.The 5-foot-11 Cleveland Browns Womens Hoodie , 240-pounder recorded a team-high eight tackles in last season's NFC Championship against Minnesota and had four in Philadelphia's Super Bowl win. Kendricks signed with Cleveland in the offseason and the Browns said they made the decision to release him after learning more about his involvement.Federal prosecutors said Kendricks used tips from an acquaintance to make about $1.2 million in illegal profits on four major trading deals.Prosecutors say his co-defendant, Damilare Sonoiki, was paid $10,000 in kickbacks in the scheme from 2014-2015, as well as perks like tickets to Eagles games and tagging along to a music video shoot or nightclub appearances.Sonoiki had been working as a junior analyst at Goldman Sachs but left the financial field and has most recently been writing for TV shows. An IMDB profile lists him as a former writer on the popular TV series "Black-ish" as well as other movies and TV shows.In a statement released by his lawyer the day he was charged, Kendricks said he was sorry and takes full responsibility for his actions."While I didn't fully understand all of the details of the illegal trades, I knew it was wrong, and I wholeheartedly regret my actions," he said in the statement.Kendricks also claimed he didn't take any of the profits for himself but didn't elaborate on where the money went."I am committed to repaying all of the funds gained illegally and accept the consequences of my actions."
