Browns general manager John Dorsey felt confident the team had done its homework before taking Callaway in the draft.
“I feel very comfortable with where we are as an organization,” Dorsey said. “We have done extensive — I mean extensive — background work here. We actually have had people go down to Gainesville. We have actually had people go down to certain areas just to find out all about the specifics of the situation.
Doesn’t look like it. The last thing the Browns need to deal with is more off the field issues. I mean, isn’t Hard Knocks enough.
