In recent days, reports have surfaced that UCLA football star Josh Rosen could decide to return to school in order to avoid playing for the Cleveland Browns.
While there has been no confirmation from the quarterback about those reports, he did make some recent comments that are being perceived as a shot at the franchise that dwells in “The Mistake By The Lake.”
Rosen was asked about his NFL preference when he seemed to throw some shade.
“I’d rather be a lower pick at the right team than a higher (pick) at the wrong team,” Rosen told Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.
If Rosen does return to UCLA, he would play his final year at the collegiate level under new Bruins head coach Chip Kelly. In Kelly’s offense, he would have plenty of opportunities to build on this past season, which already featured career highs.
So will Rosen return to school despite being widely regarded as a potential No. 1 overall pick? That remains to be seen, but what is clear is that it’s a terrible time to be a Cleveland Browns fan.
