When rookie second-round pick DeShone Kizer takes the field for the Browns on Sunday against the Steelers, he will be the team’s 27th different starting quarterback since 1999, when the team returned to the NFL. And out of those previous 26 starters, only one has a winning record as the Browns’ quarterback: Brian Hoyer went 10-6 during his two years in Cleveland. Naturally, the team chose not to re-sign him after the 2014 season and instead anointed Johnny Manziel as the franchise’s future.
The Browns released Manziel after the 2015 season and he’s been out of football ever since.
Should Terrell Owens be in the NFL Hall of Fame? Of course. He will be the first to tell you he should be. Can he still play? Perhaps. In all seriousness, he would last a couple of plays before an Achilles tendon would give. 43 years old is ancient for a skill player in the league. Go quietly into that goodnight T.O.
“I mean, it’s bigger than I think some of us think,” he said. “It’s just important for me to go out there, hand over my heart, represent our country and just be thankful and not take anything I’ve been given and my freedom for granted.” – Dak Prescott
