Last resort: The Browns lost in embarrassing fashion at home to the Jaguars in Week 13. And while Brandon Weeden made some costly errors, he wasn’t really the main reason they lost this time. Josh Gordon gave Weeden a big assist in his big day, but now Weeden is under concussion protocol, which means it’s very possible the team will start newly acquired QB Alex Tanney, who is better known for his entertaining trick shot mastery than any NFL success. Tanney is the only healthy QB on Cleveland’s roster right now, so if you happen to have any experience playing QB and aren’t predisposed this Sunday. you might want to send your résumé down to the folks in Berea, OH. Anyhow, […]

If you somehow owned or started Freeman on your team, you have some QB shopping to do. Stat. Spiller a game-time decision: Those of you who own C.J. Spiller are in a bit of a bind.

The Raiders originally drafted Gabriel in the 1962 AFL Draft, but he instead signed with the Los Angeles Rams. The Raiders, however, were able to seize on Gabriel’s dissatisfaction with his use in Los Angeles and he signed with the Raiders. While some players had opted to sign with the AFL out of college instead of the NFL (like Joe Namath), Gabriel was widely considered one of the first NFL stars to be lured away by the upstart league according to AP reports at the time. The AFL was believed to have attempted […]
