    Duke gone! To the texans for an undisclosed draft pick...

    This is why I had no problem with Baker calling him out earlier this summer. People (not browns fans) pointed at how inappropriate it was and how Rivers handled the Gordon holdout was the standard. Completely different situations and Duke was clearly a detriment to the team, at this point. Glad Baker told it like it was.

    Seeing conditional 4th. Lol, seems like a great trade. Can get a better 3rd down back in the 4th round anyway.

    I liked Duke, but he's been overhyped. Great pass catching back, but not worth the headache of his trade demands.

    Thank you! As I mentioned before, people fell in love with him because he was the best skill player of a rather shitty group. I think I cited that a few years ago he was the leading receiver (including WR's) of a team whose top WR was Ricardo Louis, who was about 300 yards behind him.

    He also had some bad fumbling issues. In fact, that Jets game where they broke through last year his ass got save by a teammate who recovered his fumble, in Jets territory, that could've changed the course of that game.

    His skill set is a luxury on this roster and I wouldn't sleep on Dontrell Hilliard.

    I like the trade and I was stating that no reason to trade unless value received

    Apparently it will be a 3rd rounder if Duke is active for 10 games. Has never missed a game. That makes the trade even better.

    Definitely a great trade - I expect him to be active for the 10 game requirement for this to get bumped up to a 3rd round pick.  Highest return on a RB trade in the NFL since the Browns fleeced the Colts for a 1st in the Trent Richardson trade back in 2013.

    Thank you, Rashard Higgins!

    I initially thought this was a shitty trade, then I read Brent Sobleski's take on how moving Duke's contract helps resign our studs like Myles and I felt better about it.

    Man y’all suck at live comments... I can’t even watch. Apparently Baker looked like a boss on first drive. I love Higgins.

    That TD throw by Baker was something.

    Nice pick 6 for Mack-Wilson

    Seems like only yesterday we were all bitching about how bad the WR corps were. Now, I don't envy Dorsey having to choose who to cut. Same can be said with some defensive players.

    Calling my "hot taek" right now....before the season ends both Takitaki & Wilson will be the starters over Schobert & Kirksey and this won't be due to injury.

    lol, I'll take that bet BR. Can't beleve you're shitting on a pro bowl lber, #9 rated LBer in the league according to PFF bc Mack Wilson had a good fucking preseason game.

    No, I'm "shitting" on a LB that led the league in missed tackles (Schobert) and a JAG (Kirksey), Had nothing to do with the performance of Wilson in a preseason game. When Wilson was drafted I thought he'd supplant one of these guys. Thought he was a HUGE steal. Takitaki is a high motor guy who loves to make contact. Just think Dorsey upgraded the athleticism at the position quite a bit.

    Calloway shows up out of shape, and not suspended 4 game for substance abuse policy. Clown.

    This kid returned a kick for a Td last night. Amazing story

    Yep.  I don't care if you're a Browns fan or not, you can't not love his story.  I hope he makes the 53-man roster.  Dude has crazy wheels and ran a sub-4.4 after having not eaten regularly and without being in "playing shape."  Kid could be a burner.

    As for the Duke Johnson trade, there was no point keeping him.  He's the poor man's Darren Sproles.  Good pass-catcher.  Could spot start here or there and do okay.  Not really enough talent to justify any significant playing time on a team with Hunt and Chubb, though.  And if he was a locker room problem, then the smart play is to get him out anyway.

    The Texans are a better fit for him, and the Browns got good value in a 3rd or 4th round pick.
