Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess has been in a medical treatment center following the season, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. "I was in a point of my life where there was a lot of betrayal and mistrust and I didn't know how to handle it," Bess said. "So I went and got some help. I went through the process and learned it's OK to express my feelings but I have to do it in a positive way."
Fantasy Tip: Bess isn't even guaranteed to be on the Browns' roster next season. Don't plan on drafting him, unless he lands in a very favorable situation, which is unlikely.

Updating an earlier report, Cleveland Browns WR Davone Bess appeared to be under the influence of an unknown narcotic at the time of his arrest. Police responded to passenger complaints of a black man at a TSA checkpoint "acting irrationally, dancing, singing with his pants repeatedly falling down." When cops arrived, Bess grabbed a cup of coffee that didn't belong to him off a nearby counter and squeezed it so hard it splashed all over the cop. He got into a fighting stance and was struck by the cop in the leg with a baton. The cop said the strike had no effect. Bess took his shirt off and got into a fighting stance again. He surrendered when backup arrived.
