Default Browns facing possible suspension, fine, loss of draft pick for 'Textgate'

Cleveland Browns and GM Ray Farmer facing possible suspension, fine, loss of draft pick for 'Textgate'
Quote:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Browns and general manager Ray Farmer are facing possible sanctions from the NFL for "Textgate," including a multigame suspension for Farmer, and a fine and loss of draft pick for the Browns, league sources told Northeast Ohio Media Group.

The investigation -- one of three "integrity of the game" probes currently underway in the NFL -- is expected to be wrapped up soon, as early this week or next week.

NEOMG reported on Jan. 6 that a Browns "high-ranking personnel member texted from the press box to the sidelines about playcalls'' during a game, which was one of the reasons former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan, now with the Falcons, felt that working for the Browns had become dysfunctional for him.

Multiple league sources have told NEOMG that Farmer was the high-ranking personnel member who violated the NFL's electronic use policy by the impermissible texting. Those messages were then apparently relayed to the coaches.

The NFL investigated the improper texts, and are prepared to announce sanctions within the next couple of weeks. A resolution could come as early as this week, but probably no later than three weeks.

Farmer is facing a multigame suspension -- as many as three or four games -- and the Browns are facing the loss of a draft pick if the probe, conducted by in-house NFL executives, shows that Farmer acted improperly.

Aw, leave 'em alone. They're the Browns - they're doing a far better job of inflicting punishment on themselves than the NFL could ever hope to.

There is no force of man nor nature that can possibly keep them from drafting the next Johnny Manziel.

Taking away their # 12 would hopefully have huge impact on #16 by forcing another prime candidate down. As Cleveland also has # 19, Commissioner may be more willing to penalize the #12.

If he really wanted to rub salt in the wound, he'd take them both away, and force them to draft at #22 again.

I'd be surprised if it's close to that high.

Brrrrrring. Brrrrrrrrrrrrring.

Kyle Shanihan: WTF, who is that. I'm coaching a game, here.
Assistant: It's Ray Farmer, I you'd better...
KS: Hello?

Ray Farmer: Kyle, General Manager Ray Farmer here.
KS: Yeah, caller ID...

RF: I've been watching the game, here, and got this idea...
KS: Errr, hang on a sec SPIDER 2, Y BANANA... okay, now what?

RF: We want you to start calling those plays where Johnny Football
scrambles out of the pocket around for like 10 seconds and then heaves
the ball like 40 yards downfield for a touchdown...

KS: Wha...

RF: Mmmkay, so start doing that. Got it? Good. *click*
KS: *double facepalm*

The rumor is that Kyle gave a 32 point PowerPoint presentation on why he should be let out of his contract to Mike Pettine.

Getting so bad there Jordan Cameron (reportedly) has no interest in re-signing with Cleveland.

I have no doubt that Cleveland gets sanctioned and New England does not. The NFL has it's favorites.

But even Cleveland probably faces no more than a loss of a sixth. They want the impression of sanctions which do little to actually affect the team. A higher round might actually be meaningful.

Appears Cleveland found a neat little loophole. The person reportedly that will be getting the QB coach job is working with Mariotta right now. He hasn't been officially hired by the team.

They'll still have to trade up to or ahead of 6th at least, maybe to 2nd. That'll leave a mark.

NFL teams are prohibited from communicating with draft prospects before the combine. However, potential coaches can do whatever they want before signing with a team. The Cleveland Browns have named Kevin O’Connell as quarterbacks coach for the 2015 season, but O’Connell hasn’t officially joined the team yet. He’s finishing up his duties as Marcus Mariota’s personal trainer. Once it’s time for Mariota to pursue his NFL career, O’Connell will pack his bags and head for Cleveland.

If they really wanted to punish the Browns, they would give them an extra pick - the 22nd pick in the first round.
