If it wasn’t for a mid-season trade of Trent Richardson, the Cleveland Browns would have never even dreamed of signing Willis McGahee to a contract of any kind. However, the desperate Browns really went out on a limb by bringing an out-of-shape and washed-up running back to town. Well, McGahee managed to play in 12 games and rush for a grand total of 377 yards and two touchdowns.
Needless to say, Cleveland really didn’t get much out of the 32-year-old halfback. However, make sure you don’t tell that to McGahee himself because apparently the former Miami Hurricanes running back thinks he’s back in Coral Gables. On Thursday, McGahee claimed he wants to play in the NFL for at least another four years. I’m sorry — if you will excuse me: HAHAHA!
In other news, I would like a lifelong supply of Slim Jims along with my own personal island somewhere nice and sunny. Seriously, what is McGahee thinking? This running back should consider himself lucky if he even gets an invite to training camp this season. Besides, the Browns are surely drafting a running back in the 2014 NFL Draft after half of AFC North functioned just fine with a first-year player in the backfield last season.
Putting all of the sarcasm aside; I applaud McGahee’s attitude but this guy needs a swift reality check if you ask me.
