Gotta find some way to fit in the Michael Sam gay story. Never miss an opportunity.

do you mean unsurprising roster cuts...I don't think Connor or Sam getting cut really comes as a surprise to many

When they signed Grossman is was pretty obvious they had no use for Conner.

Grossman was cut today.


Back to the originial topic, that headline is hideous. It reads like Michael Sam and Connor Shaw are the first openly gay players drafted.
And it wasn't breaking news to me that either of them didn't make the cut.
Pitiful!

That's why the Browns will be bad for a long time. The one they should have cut is the one they think is the future of their team.

Re: Shaw: Check Out This Headline
 
Since Conner outperformed Johnny I guess it looked bad to have him on the roster?

Why did they cut Grossman? Who are they replacing him with on the 53? Is there some monetary reason to keep Grossman, cut him, then sign Conner to the main roster?

If that doesn't motivate Shaw, nothing will!!!

Maybe Conner is the gay spelling of Connor?

They are trying to save money and ps'd Connor under the assumption that either hoyer or lil johnny or both will be healthy all year. I think it is a bs move because they clearly want Connor around so pay him you damn ohio taters.

Re: Shaw: Check Out This Headline
 
I read it like they were the 1st drafted couple that were openly gay by how they grouped the names together.

It is confusing the way it is written as to whether Connor or Michael is the gay player. It is singular though... Bad headline all around.

Back in the day we referred to it as 'killing two birds with one stone'; today it's 'multi-tasking'. LOL.

Re: Shaw: Check Out This Headline
 
Why is Sam being cut surprising? It's only surprising to someone who thought there was no way they'd cut an openly gay player, because his talent didn't merit being on the team.

Johnny Manziel will be knocked out of a game by week 8 and Connor will get his chance this year.
