The Recent History Of The Cleveland Browns Told In 15 Now-Obsolete Jerseys

Tim Couch (1999-2003) was the first draft pick of the new Browns, but threw more interceptions (67) than touchdowns (64) his 62 games for Cleveland. Ouch.

If you buy the jersey for a top draft pick, you'll usually be able to get at least a few years before it becomes obsolete. Unfortunately for people who picked up a Trent Richardson jersey (2011-2012) in the last year, that's no longer the case.

After a phenomenal college career at Texas, the Browns drafted the under-sized Colt McCoy (2010-2012) in the third round of the draft, but wasn't expected to play right away. But injuries to Jake Delhomme and Senaca Wallace (yikes) forced McCoy into action his rookie season, with Hoyer-esque results. But when the Browns drafted Brandon Weeden in 2012 it signaled the end of his career in Cleveland and he was traded to San Francisco last April (along with Cleveland's 6th round draft pick) for their 7th and 5th round picks.

A Trent Richardson (2011-2012) jersey, duct tape, and an appropriate hashtag. Well done.

The only consolation for two of the three guys of this group is that their jerseys are cheap knock offs. The Peyton Hills (2010-2011) jersey looks like an expensive, officially licensed one, unfortunately.

Two third-overall draft picks, two players who left Cleveland disappointingly. Braylon Edwards (2005-2009) was a big deal in Northeast Ohio for a couple seasons, but after issues with "catching" and off-field incidents, he eventually fell out of favor with the Browns and was traded to the Jets.

Not only did this guy's Braylon Edwards (2005-2009) jersey become obsolete in 2009, it became obsolete again after he altered it for another #17. Coming in at 35 years old, Jake Delhomme's window of relevance in Cleveland was never going to be long, but injuries made it even smaller. He threw two touchdowns and seven picks in the 2010 season.

The Cleveland Browns signed free agent Darren Hambrick before the 2002 season to replace injured linebacker Jamir Miller. He was arrested that October and cut within a year (and later arrested for rape). This guy is in his full uniform.

The Josh Cribbs (2005-2012) jersey had a good shelf-life in Cleveland, but a case of fumblitis later in his career in Cleveland annoyed a lot of Browns Fans. Jeff Garcia (2004) only played one (bad) season in Cleveland, including a 8 of 27, 71-yard, three interception performance against the Dallas Cowboys

This jersey is sad on several different levels. Not only was it once a #23 LeBron James Cleveland Browns jersey (look closely and you'll see traces of an "LE" before the "BRO" and an "N" after), the basketball player left Cleveland three years ago, forcing this guy to advertise himself as a "bro" instead of wearing a football jersey of Cleveland's former basketball hero.

Has there been a more disappointing player than Peyton Hillis? The great white hype got the Madden '12 cover and promptly did nothing else in his career. Kellen Winslow (2004-2008), the motorcycle riding "soldier", left Cleveland after five injury-plagued seasons.

Brady Quinn (2007-2009) was hyped up to be a franchise-quarterback, but he was better at modeling than playing football.

This fan turned his Trent Richardson (2012-2013) jersey into a Browns CEO Joe Banner jersey.

This guy will always have the most up-to-date jersey.
