The Cleveland Browns decided their 2013 season needed a strong course correction Wednesday night. Trading away their 2012 1st round pick Trent Ricardson, the Browns hope to land a better player with a different draft pick from next year's draft class. The Browns will receive the Indianapolis Colts 2014 1st round draft pick. This is how the Browns turned a #4 overall pick into a #20 to #30 draft pick. Remember when the Browns traded with the Vikings to move up one slot in order to land Richardson?
The Colts fans reactions are tending towards the, "Holy. Freaking. Crap." While Browns fans are left stunned and waiting for next season. Are the Cleveland Browns really trying to tank this season in hopes of landing a high draft pick in 2014? This is the same team that announced their 3rd string quarterback will be starting this week - skipping their number 2 quarterback entirely. Jason Campbell is healthy and sitting on the Browns' bench. Some people are wondering if the mildly injured Brandon Weeden's days as the Browns' starter are done.
All hail the division's new dominate Cleveland Browns, led by quarterback Brian Hoyer and running back Bobby Rainey. Remember the 90's "Lost Decade" Bengals fans, treat your Browns fans with a little bit of empathy, the "Factory of Sadness" continues to hover over the city of Cleveland in 2013.
