Which means, in theory, the Cleveland Browns don't exactly have the best players in said National Football League.
Which means ... why are the Dallas Cowboys signing the player the Cleveland Browns didn't, you know, want? Repeatedly?
One day after adding Brandon Carr to become their "shutdown" corner, the Cowboys have added safety Brodney Pool. Pool spent the first five seasons of his NFL career with the Browns before he played the last two years for the New York Jets.
Click here for Pool's career stats on NFL.com Any time I hear this guy's name I think of the 1982 Miller Lite bowling tournament add when the guy looks at Rodney Dangerfield and said, "All we need is one pin, Rodney."
Last year, the Cowboys signed Abe Elam "away" from the Browns to play safety. A decent player. Nice guy. And no plays - no picks, no passes defended, no sacks. He played all 16 games. He is un-signed as of today.
The common thread is both Elam and Pool played for Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan in Cleveland.
