Leo Roth of the Democrat and Chronicle reports for the USA Today Buffalo Bills rookie MLB Brandon Spoon is drawing comparisons to former Bills LB Chris Spielman.

Browns | Spielman Still Has The Fire!

Sun, 27 Jun 1999 15:35:00 -0700

Mark Craig reports in The Repository that Browns MLB Chris Spielman showed recently that he still has the competitive fires burning inside of him. He was upset when Browns President Carmen Policy had warned not to expect more than five to seven victories in 1999, while Dwight Clark, the team's director of football operations, said the team isn't out to impress anybody in 1999. Spielman walked into the cafeteria at the team's headquarters and demanded, "Am I wasting my time here?" Spielman along with several other veteran feel the Browns have a playoff-caliber team right now. Team officials love the attitude though as Policy said, "we need that kind of attitude if we are to reach beyond what we think can be achieved by an expansion team."

Browns | Keep an Eye on Forbes, Chiaverini

Sat, 12 Jun 1999 19:05:00 -0700

Patrick McManamon of the Akron Beacon Journal reports that two Browns to keep an eye on are S Marlon Forbes and rookie WR Darrin Chiaverini. Forbes, who is currently the team's starting strong safety, knows the Browns defense well because he played under defensive coordinator Bob Slowik in Chicago last year. Forbes has looked strong in the team's minicamps so far. As far as Chiaverini goes, "he could be our fourth receiver, but I don't want to underestimate him," Browns coach Chris Palmer said. "He is one of those guys where the ball finds him, and he will be a factor." As with Forbes, much more will be known when the pads go on -- will he still go over the middle with LB Chris Spielman ready to level him? -- but he's been as impressive as any rookie to date.
