So long Big Phil. I guess this is what happens when your team has a defensive line with good depth and a player who is coming off of two arthroscopic knee surgeries. Even though he’s still guaranteed $5 mill and he’s a first round pick, the Browns decided he was expendable and cut ties with him.
It’s kind of a shame that Browns fans will always remember Phil Taylor’s name with Julio Jones’s name, but that’s just the way it is. Phil was definitely a solid player but he never quite lived up to the expectations you have for a player drafted in the first round. I’ll definitely be rooting for him because he seemed like a good dude and someone who genuinely wanted to win for the city of Cleveland.
Now let’s take a look at the Browns recent drafts
And look at what the Browns passed up by trading that #6 pick in 2011 because we love hindsight in Cleveland.
Goodnight, sweet prince
