15. Andrew Hawkins
Andrew Hawkins was a beloved wideout for the Browns during his brief three-year career. He had 123 receptions for 1,424 yards and five touchdowns and a huge first season. Hawkins started strong with the Browns, wherein his debut season he put over 800 yards receiving but injuries and misuse due to Hue Jackson coming in caused his tenure to be shortlived. Hawkins is doing alright for himself now, as he’s one-half of the ThomaHawk podcast, hosted by himself and future NFL Hall of Famer and Cleveland Browns great, Joe Thomas.
14. Joe Jurevicius
Joe Jurevicius may not have great memories of his time in Cleveland. Jurevicius suffered from a staph infection after his second year with the team, which resulted in him having to retire from the NFL due to the damage to his knee. He filed a lawsuit against the Browns and the Cleveland Clinic for an undisclosed sum. Even though he had a bad finish to his time in Cleveland, he had a decent two-year stint. Jurevicius was still playing well in his early 30’s, ending up with 90 catches for 1,109 yards with six touchdowns over those two years. His tenure with the Browns may have ended his career, but that hasn’t stopped the Ohio native from being involved with the organization from time to time still.
13. Terrelle Pryor
The former Ohio State University quarterback turned into a wide receiver once he got to the NFL and had his best year in Cleveland. In his 19 games with the Browns, Pryor caught 78 passes for 1,049 yards and four touchdowns. Pryor left for Washington right after, never reduplicating the same success.
12. Ben Watson
Ben Watson won a lot with New England but didn’t find that kind of success when he came into Cleveland in 2010. Despite being in his early 30’s, Watson played really well. He caught 154 passes, for 1,674 yards and eight touchdowns. Watson didn’t win many games with the Browns, but that didn’t detour his desire to play. He stayed on in the league until 2019, retiring at the age of 40.
11. Kellen Winslow Jr.
Kellen Winslow Jr. is a terrible human being. Beyond that, he’s barely above bust-tier as a tight end. A broken leg in his rookie year that caused him to miss 14 games, then a motorcycle crash ended his sophomore year before it even began. That doesn’t even factor in his staph infection he suffered while recovering from his motorcycle-caused ACL tear. For a top-ten NFL draft pick, he had only two good years, despite having loads of talent. Winslow caught 604 receptions, for 2,459 yards, with 11 touchdowns all to his name. What a schmuck.
