Re: Ben Tate
Crowell's got the talent to steal the job, that's for sure. BUT, I actually think that the Josh Gordon thing (not mention Manziel's inability to keep himself out of the "look at me" non-football, off-season limelight) might put a dent in the amount of opportunity that Crowell gets in the near term. Pure speculation on my part, but I'd think that the Browns will be leery of relying on Crowell too much until he proves to team brass that he's not a knucklehead notwithstanding his well-documented problems in college. There's only so much (blind) trust one team can put in young talented players with a penchant for behavioral issues.
