Browns drama: Players reportedly want out of dodge

The Cleveland Browns embarrassingly dropped a game to the then three-win Arizona Cardinals on Sunday by the score of 38-24.

This moved Cleveland to 6-8 on the season and pretty much completely out of the AFC Playoff race.

A season that started with Super Bowl expectations has now gone up in spectacular flames, leading to a sideline rift between star receiver Jarvis Landry and embattled head coach Freddie Kitchens.

It’s now being reported by NFL Media’s Mike Silver that Landry was among the players who yelled to the Cardinals sideline to come get him. This was a way for Landry and others to pretty much indicate they want out of Cleveland.

That’s not even anywhere near the extent of it. Browns starting safety Damarious Randall was posed with a question about whether he has confidence in Kitchens one day after Sunday’s loss.

He did not go to bat for his head coach.

This all comes on the heels of reports surfacing that star recover Odell Beckham Jr. is not happy with the Browns.

By virtue of their loss on Sunday, the Browns became the only team in the NFL to go through this decade without a winning season.

Things apparently are not going swell behind the scenes, either. It’s just the latest example of this organization seemingly hitting yet another low.
