They did get an edge rusher.  Traded for Olivier Vernon to pair up with Myles Garrett.  Their front 4 is looking good, and the offense looks stacked.  Went from a team that should have been relegated to the Canadian League, to one that could win it all in just 2 years.

Glad the Browns have something to get excited about. They've suffered enough over the last twenty-five years or so.

One of the things I love about NFL is that you can go from being rubbish to Super Bowl contenders in a few years.

Not always just a few teams dominating.

Apart from the Patriots, who are the spawn of Satan.

I wouldn't roll out the bunting just yet, they are still the Browns after all.

That's what I was thinking. If there's one* NFL team that could feck up a potentially great situation, it's the Browns

*well, there's two actually. The other is my Raiders, except that's not even 'potentially', they have done :(

He's suspended for 8 games. Don't think Tyreek Hill is an angel either.

Talking of the Raiders, when do the Wembley tickets go on sale?

Itís all gone quiet re next seasonís London games. My assumption is that theyíre waiting for use of the Tottingham ground to be confirmed

Is he the best TE ever?

Or someone else like Tony Gonzalez?

For a one-off game, if fully fit, then I'd say Gronk was the best ever.

I think that all the injuries and games missed prevent him from being considered as having the greatest career

However, he's certainly in the discussion with Gonzalez, Gates, Winslow & Ozzie

Christian Wade has signed for the Bills.

Not exactly

He's been 'allocated' to the Bills as part of the international player program

He'll be an extra body on the offseason roster. In effect, he's the 91st player on a 90 player squad.

It would be interesting to see Wade make it but he's still a very, very, very long way off

Any chance they'll ever announce the sodding schedule for the London games? I need to book the Monday off.
