May 6 2016THE NEWEST "NEW ERA" BEGINS
The Browns are welcoming a lot of new players this weekend. How many will still be around in September is an open question. Between draft picks, undrafted free agents, and tryout players there's close to 30 newbies here. Now the odds would say a few will make it, but in reality you just don't know. All we can say about these guys right now is they're young, eager and cheap. And young and cheap are the cornerstones of "Moneyball," as currently practiced in the NFL. So we'll see. BTW Sports Illustrated re-graded all 32 teams for their 2013 draft, and the Browns, who chose Bark Mingo that year, got an F-. Congrats Joe Banner, who earned a job as an ESPN "expert" off that draft. He joins Phil Savage there, who was fleeced by the Baltimore Ravens for Haloti Ngata in his first draft here. Failure leads to...network TV and better jobs!
