Tashaun Gipson Sr. was a valued member of the Cleveland Browns during the really tough years.
Gipson’s time in Cleveland spanned from 2012 through 2015 before he left for Jacksonville in free agency.
Gipson was a really good player for the Browns but unfortunately, he was one of the few at the time.
Over his four seasons, the Browns had a 19-45 record including the biggest collapse and disappointment in the history of the franchise.
In 2014 Cleveland was playing some of the best football in the entire AFC. After Week 9, Cleveland was 6-3 and first in the AFC North and the team felt like it finally was turning the corner.
Unfortunately, that wave came crashing down. Cleveland finished the season with a 1-6 record over the final seven games finishing last in the AFC North at 7-9.
2014 was maybe the most disappointing of the many years since the return.
The tune has changed amongst the Cleveland Browns.
They have a roster that poses a threat to every other NFL team in the league and more importantly, that roster believes it can get the job done.
The NFL Awards were a great example of what this team has.
Myles Garrett took home the Defensive Player of the Year, Kevin Stefanski was named Head Coach of the Year, Jim Schwartz snagged the Assistant Coach of the Year and Joe Flacco was named Comeback Player of the Year.
