Browns Become Most Entertaining Team in NFL with OBJ Trade

The Browns are now must-watch television.  Late Tuesday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns acquired Odell Beckham Jr. from the New York Giants for a 1st and 3rd round picks in the upcoming draft, along with safety Jabrill Peppers, and Offensive Lineman Kevin Zeitler.

Sure, the Patriots were the Super Bowl winner, 13-3, but I wonder if it felt as good as the previous five times they hoisted the Lombardi Trophy?  The Patriots faced a well-thought out Rams defense that had a solid plan which emphasized pressure from every angle. For the [...]
