The Browns will need to galvanize as a team this year the same way the Colts did last year. That means they are a step behind us and not ahead of us imo and that they will lose close games that a more experienced team wins.
Ballard is a shrewd guy. Maybe by contacting the Texans & making it public he’s “letting Clowney know” he’s got a fan of his game in CB & the Colts... I saw a stat that said his tackle for losses were up there with Aaron Donald. We need a guy like him who can wreak havoc in the backfield be it against the run or the pass. Don’t be surprised if Ballard gives him a good long look next year in free agency unless Texans are foolish enough to trade him within the division.
