Besides facing on the field bad luck following a lackluster 7-10 season, the Cleveland Browns players are also facing a distressing situation during the offseason as two of the players of the franchise- running back Demetric Felton and cornerback Greg Newsome II have fallen victim to separate crimes in the last days.
Demetric started his national football career after getting selected by the Browns as the 211th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft and recorded 20 catches for 189 yards while 181 of the yards amassed in his rookie season while sitting behind Nick Chubb and Jerome Ford to become their No.3 RB.
Greg headed to the NFL after getting selected by the Browns as the No. 26 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and recorded 37 tackles and nine pass defenses in his rookie season.
