By now, everyone has heard about the Cleveland Browns trading running back Terrance West to the Tennessee Titans over the weekend. The team had put a lot of effort into getting West on the straight and narrow, as his maturity seemed to be an issue of concern with coaches. By trading him, Cleveland essentially dubbed West a lost cause, giving up on a player they drafted in the third round just last year.
I completely understand why the Browns felt the need to deal West. His productivity wavered on a weekly basis, and he seemed to have a permanent residence in coach Mike Pettine’s dog house. Under Pettine’s watch, the team has been trying to clean out any locker room problems, and it seems as though the trade of West is yet another example.
With this in mind, I have just one question for Cleveland.
