[Yes, that could have been an absolute disaster for the Vikes.
I was just watching a video the two talking heads(espn first take) at ESPN slamming Teddy and
praising Johnny Football

Johnny #### ball


I really couldn't care less about the rest but if the reports about him hitting his ex repeatedly are true I am glad this league chewed him up and spit his #### out :nono:

Wow, the more I read up on what's being written about this situation, the sadder it gets. It doesn't make a bit of sense from the outside...but it's obvious the kid is in a bad place.

He needs help. Real help. It really is sad. So much talent, but holy cow... It really just keeps getting worse.

Cold is temporary. Purple Pride is forever.

I know it's just the nature of the pop culture beast, but these young people get a continual stream of smoke blown up their butts well before college starts. It gets to be such a huge ego bender that they can't admit even the smallest fault or frailty.
I was really wanting to see him sink or swim based on his play. An exciting unorthodox talent, for sure.
He's a really young and Cleveland was probably the least ideal situation for him to wind up in regards to organizational stability...but it sure don't look good now.

And to think, the Vikings could have had him.

And plenty of fans (and reportedly some front office) wanted him...

Although, being drafted by the Browns could lead just about anyone to drink. :)

I wonder if anyone will give him another chance? He played decent, but man, he has a lot of problems to address...

So are the Browns just not going to field a team next year? They didn't re-sign anyone, picked up no one in FA, and are 3rd in cap money (I think). I'm all for building through the draft but at least retain the guys you drafted! Not Manziel obviously but they let a lot of FA's hit the market, including 40% of their o-line.

It really is a factory of sadness. (YouTube it if you haven't seen it)

Sounds like they are interested in Kap and that the interest is mutual. If I were him, I'd stay a long ways away... but who knows, maybe it's a perfect fixer upper?

Cleveland is like the Bermuda Triangle for QB's but if there's mutual interest then that should be interesting. Still, they've made no effort to fill any holes (and in fact have made more). I just don't get it.
