The NCAA tournament started last Thursday and Murray State point guard Ja Morant stole the show. Morant was the highlight of his team’s 83-64 win over Marquette in the opening round of the tournament.

Predicting the rest of the Browns Offseason

The biggest Browns needs to compete for a title:

  • LB
  • CB
  • SS

LB:
I am predicting the Browns trade for Darron Lee. It has been rumored he is going to be moved with the addition of CJ Mosley. He is a former first-round pick of the Jets.
