Craig's a Brown

Welcome to the Bigs! (CREDIT: Columbia Athletics/Ben Shyman)

No one expected graduating Lion QB Craig Hormann to be drafted this weekend, but he was quickly signed as a free agent by the Cleveland Browns.

Apparently, Craig did some good things during those mini-combines and tryouts last month. And he impressed the Hell out of us by coming back from his ACL tear last season to post some impressive passing stats for Columbia in 2007.

Now it might be tough for a life-long Colts fan like Craig to adjust to Cleveland, but somehow I think he'll make it.

Oh and Craig, as a former Cleveland resident myself, I have some advice:

1) Stay away from Parma Pierogies, (delicious, but not exactly the best health food)

2) Go to as many games at Jacobs Field as you can.

3) The Flats are fun, but don't have too much fun.

4) See if you can get the Browns to pay for some grad engineering courses at Case Western.. hey, former Lion QB Archie Roberts got the Browns to pay for him to go to med school there!

Good luck to him. (He'll of course need it.) But why not him as opposed to, say, that Kentucky QB the Giants drafted in the 6th round?

Craig deserves a shot at the NFL. With some better pass protection-who knows? Hes the longest of long shots but it is an accomplishment just to be invited to camp.We all wish him luck.
