Formerly the gunslinger of the Wyoming Cowboys, Josh Allen is apparently in love with the idea of turning around the Cleveland Browns.
Only a few hours removed from hurling many of his former teammates under the figurative bus, Allen didn’t back down from possibly playing in Cleveland next season. In fact, he embraced it.
“If I’m fortunate enough to become a Cleveland Brown, you can expect everything from me,” Allen told Bull and Fox Monday afternoon on 92.3 The Fan. “I want to be the guy that turns around the Cleveland Browns. The guy that does that is going to be immortalized in Cleveland forever.”
Immortalized in Cleveland, eh? That’s a pretty lofty goal.
The Browns, as you might remember, had as many wins this past season as you and I did. Worth noting, we aren’t even a National Football League franchise. Furthermore, over the last two seasons, the New England Patriots have made more appearances in the Super Bowl (two) than the Browns have won games (one).
“To think about that and to put yourself in that situation and in those shoes, you gotta love that as a quarterback and you gotta love that as a football player and competitor,” Allen said. “This is something that can really be set in stone forever, if you’re the guy that can help turn this Cleveland Browns team around. I know they’ve got the youngest team in the NFL, they’ve got the most cap space, the most high draft picks, brand new GM who has done a lot of good things in his past.”
He seems pretty optimistic.
Allen only went 16-11 with Wyoming during his collegiate tenure, but that’s still more wins than the Browns had in that time span.
