“On paper, it’s pretty scary.”
The above comment was made by new Cleveland Browns tight end Austin Hooper when discussing what his addition means to the team’s offense. Said sentiment was echoed across the league yesterday after news broke about Hooper heading to Cleveland.
It’d be natural if this felt familiar for you. After all, it’s the second straight year the Browns entered free agency with a splash, adding a weapon which had fans drooling about the potential of their offense.
On paper, the team looked pretty scary then, too. However, what we saw once games were played should effectively dissuade Browns fans from getting too excited for the year ahead. At least for right now.
