This Cleveland team is a serious bunch.
Tired of played-out chest bumps, butt bumps, high fives and head butts, the Browns’ fourth-ranked defense is choosing to celebrate big plays with a gentlemanly handshake.
It’s part of what linebackers Scott Fujita and Chris Gocong call the team’s “strictly business” approach. Oh, and there’s a team-wide facial-hair push, too.
“Mustaches packed for our #StrictlyBusiness trip,” Fujita tweeted Friday, before the 3-3 Browns rolled west to play the 5-1 49ers.
Without question, Cleveland’s young team hasn’t encountered anything like Frank Gore and the 49ers’ offense in 2011. We’ll see how this business trip pans out.
