By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — Thus far, the Cleveland Browns 230 million gamble is coming up craps.
After signing a mega-$230 million fully guaranteed contract with the Browns two years ago, embattled QB Deshaun Watson has encountered a minefield of obstacles.
Aside from his alleged off the field indiscretions, Watson is suffers rust from not playing in two years. In addition, injuries keep cropping up while keeping him from performing up to his ability.
It was painfully evident watching him throw against the Colts yesterday that his shoulder is hale and hearty.
Making matters worse, Watson also has a record $63.98 million cap hit for next season.
The only chance Cleveland has in recouping its investment is to let him fully heel.
Otherwise they are going to crap out.
