Hue Jackson: Browns Aren't "Tanking" For No. 1 Pick

Sep 27, 2016 8:20 AM

Hue Jackson said on Monday, a day after the Cleveland Browns lost in overtime against the Miami Dolphins, that the team isn't losing in hopes of getting the No. 1 overall pick in next spring's draft.

"I do want everyone to know we're not tanking the season," Jackson told reporters. "I'm not after the first pick."

The Browns are one of four teams without a win after three games, joining the Chicago Bears, Jacksonville Jaguars and New Orleans Saints.

Terrelle Pryor Plays QB, WR And Safety For Browns

Sep 26, 2016 8:17 AM

Terrelle Pryor did a little bit of everything for the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, starting the game at wide receiver while also playing quarterback and safety.

Pryor caught eight passes for 144 yards and lined up 14 times at quarterback in the shotgun. As quarterback, he ran four times for 21 yards.

He played deep safety on one play in case the Miami Dolphins attempted a Hail Mary at the end of the first half.

Hue Jackson said he had never seen a player do as much in one game as Pryor did.

"But that's what I expect him to do," Jackson said. "I've been knowing him for a while, and I know what he's capable of doing. He's capable of doing a lot."

Browns Place Robert Griffin III On IR With Shoulder Injury

Sep 12, 2016 3:51 PM

The Cleveland Browns have placed Robert Griffin III on the injured reserve with a fractured bone in his right shoulder.
