Now they get the #1 and #4 pick in the draft. That should be a good start toward some rebuilding, eh?

rebuild around the d, get a decent running game going and sign a quality FA quarterback. They have tons of draft picks and cap space. They should be a playoff team in two years if they have a competent GM and coach (yeah big 'if' i know).

going back to that 2008 Lions team, they were 2-14 a year later. The Browns won one game last year so they have the honor of having the worst combined record over 2 consecutive years.

Oh yeah, don't draft a QB...they always screw that up. Spend the money on a proven vet.

I think Cutler will be available.   Or there's always a McCown out there.

The season in Canada starts in July 2018.   As does something else that might appeal to the young man.

Greatest trivia question of all time...three times in the history of the modern era of Cleveland Browns football they have drafted a QB at #22.

Brady Quinn
Brandon Weeden
Johnny Manziel

Technically it was the 2007, or 2007-2008, Lions.

You probably just remember when the Lions flew a kid from Haiti in to watch one of their games that year and he was wearing one of those Patriots 19-0 t-shirts aid workers were giving away the previous spring and they showed him on the telecast and you got confused.
