Romeo: You turn the ball over, you get benched

Over/under on the water boy playing quarterback by halftime?

Jimmy Haslam Steps Down As CEO Of Pilot Flying J

Jimmy Haslam has officially resigned as CEO of Pilot & Flying J truck stops. Presumably, he will be more involved with the Browns than anyone expected. I like this guy, and this shows that he is definitely all-in.

Evan Moore signs with Seattle

I'm going to miss this guy. On the bright side, they released Kellen Winslow to sign him.

Ask DBN on Windy City Gridiron

I just threw up a Q&A post over on the Bears site.

Ask Dawgs By Nature

Hola, Bears fans. Two days until we play each other in the fourth and final preseason game, which means that the regular season is right around the corner and games will start counting soon! This...

Carlton Mitchell may have been cut

Dustin Fox from 92.3 The Fan tweeted that Carlton Mitchell posted on twitter, and that judging by that post, he may have been released today. Mitchell's has since been deleted. I'll try and keep you all updated.

Eric Steinbach Retires

Sad to see him go. Best of luck post-NFL Eric.

Licensed Scribbles of an Optimist #1: Ode to Pluto and the Browns Convincing Improvement

Dang, it feels good to see a convincing and decisive victory, "meaningless" preseason game or not. Here's some thoughts I have after the second preseason win.

Sunday Sunday Sunday! (More fantasy football!)

I decided to try my hand at being a commish this year and started my own fantasy league. It's open to everyone so all you have to do is click on the link and sign up; no invites or anything. This league is not affiliated with DBN in any way, I just thought I would offer it to anyone who didn't make it in a league here or who wants to join one with a commish who will play within the rules. Enjoy!

The Browns Sale is Official

Lerner makes a pretty penny as he sells the team for more than $1 billion.

Just heard on 92.3 The Fan that Eric Steibach has signed a one-year contract with the Miami Dolphins. Can't find anything on line to verify yet, but I highly doubt 92.3 would announce it if it wasn't credible.

Luck signs with Indy

The dominoes are falling. In all likelihood, we should have Richardson and Weeden signed soon.

Just an interesting tidbit I discovered today: Joe Thomas has made history. He joins Jim Brown as the only two Browns players to be named to the Pro Bowl in each of their first five seasons.

Adrian Peterson arrested in Houston

AP is about as squeaky clean as they come. This is surprising. EDIT: An update is here, and this is starting to look very fishy.

Ocho Dolphino

WR Chad Ochocinco has signed with the Miami Dolphins.

Even the IFL doesn't like T.O.

The Allen Wranglers of the Indoor Football League have released Terrell Owens.

Update on Taylor Injury

Looks like it may not be the worst case scenario after all.

Matt Roth visits the Steelers

The Steelers had three free agent visits today. Former Brown Matt Roth was one of them.

I'm moving to Seattle!

Hola, Field Gulls! I'm Brian from over at Dawgs by Nature. Somewhere around 60 days from now, I'll be packing up my trusty Saturn SL1 (Joanna is her name) and trekking out west to my new home...

Ravens sign Curtis Painter

I never wish injury on anyone, but I will be a little more excited if Flacco goes down this season.

Trent Richardson, Prom Date

Trent Richardson helps out a high school student who has leukemia. Classy guy.

Remember when James Harrison body-slammed a fan?

Apparently Harrison body-slammed him into heaven. FYI: He's still a prick.

OT: Advice for a cross-country road trip

I'm moving. In just under 90 days, this licensed optimist will be packing up his trusty Saturn SL1 and setting out for my new home of Seattle, Washington. I'll be taking I-90 to I-94, traveling...

Texans Release Eric Winston

This is one FA RT we cannot let drift away in the wind.
