Infamous Browns Starting QB Jersey Retired in Light of Cavaliers' Championship

The city of Cleveland is "All In" for a new era in its sports history.

And that means it'll be throwing out any remnant of its 52-year championship drought—including the names of the Browns' last 24 starting quarterbacks exhibited in descending tape on this infamous jersey.

Rather than keeping track of the football team's trend toward instability and mediocrity, the jersey's latest look focuses on something else: unity.

Much like the LeBron James banner displayed on the side of Sherwin-Williams' corporate headquarters, this updated jersey includes a singular, all-encompassing name: Cleveland.

In order to build on the success of the newly crowned Cavaliers, however, the Browns need to elevate the historically poor talent on their roster.

Unfortunately for the Browns, the best athlete Ohio has to offer seems to be doing quite well in his current endeavors.
