A match-up against his former team, the one he joined after jilting the Cavs 6 years ago, with a sixth consecutive trip to the NBA Finals on the line is getting closer to reality.
The decision to forgo another back surprised some but Browns head coach Hue Jackson didn’t see a need to waste a pick on a position that he felt was stocked well enough.
Friday night Browns head coach Hue Jackson asked everyone to “trust” him when the team selected Cody Kessler in the third round of the NFL Draft. Jackson understands the skepticism, but frankly does not care.
Since Kosar was last with the Browns in 1993, his number has been worn just twice – Frismon Jackson in 2004 and Miles Austin in 2014 after Austin contacted Kosar to receive his permission to wear it.
Love sustained the injury when he got Kent Bazemore on a pump-fake behind the 3-point line airborne with 3:32 left in the game causing Bazemore to come down right on his right shoulder.
After watching their 18-point lead with 4 minutes left in the third quarter evaporate, the Cavs came together down the stretch led by LeBron James to put the Hawks away.
The Browns have yet to announce their list of UFAs so the list is subject to change.
With Hue Jackson in charge, no longer will the position be neglected, deemed unimportant and treated like anyone will do. The Browns invested significant draft capital in the position over the last 3 days.
Cleveland gets Dolphins cornerback Jamar Taylor, taken in the second round of the 2013 draft – 54th overall – as well as Pick No. 250 in exchange for No. 223.
The Browns made a total of 14 picks – 4 receivers, 3 linebackers, 2 defensive backs, 2 offensive linemen plus a quarterback, defensive lineman, and tight end plus they made 5 trades.
