The Cleveland Browns didn’t make the Super Bowl, but some Browns alumni are in fact waging a battle to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this year.
Sometimes its the solace in the little things that makes being a Browns fan bearable. The expectation for the 2019 Cleveland Browns was Super Bowl or bust and boy, did they bust. The team continues to remain free of a Super Bowl appearance since the NFL started holding the big game.
That said, it’s still good to be appreciative. Sure, the Browns won’t compete for the 2019-2020 Super Bowl title but some former Browns are doing just that. If you can’t at least be a little happy about that fact, I don’t know what to tell you. The Browns that are in this game vary wildly from All-Pro starters to back up’s that are barely hanging on.
In total there are seven players split up over the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, with five players on offense, and two on defense. As you peruse the selections, take note as to how many offensive linemen the Browns gave up on who could have been vital and valuable to the Browns in 2019. The short-sighted, “bring my guys in” mentality of turnover hurt the 2019 Browns more than anyone seems to want to admit. Too many bad decisions and rejections simply for the sake of putting someone’s own stamp on the product.
So with all that said, let’s look at the players who make up both teams on this, the super-est of Super Sundays.
