The Browns got some national attention for all the wrong reasons on Sunday during the NFC Championship Game between the Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons, and it likely won’t be the last time they get that attention over the next few weeks.
With the Falcons heading to Super Bowl LI, there will be a lot of attention to a couple players on their team, and two of them are former Browns.
Those players were former center Alex Mack and wide out Taylor Gabriel, both of which were on the Browns roster last season.
Mack left the Browns via free agency and has been a big part of the Atlanta offensive line, while Gabriel had 35 catches for 569 yards and six scores during the regular season for the Falcons.
Fox lead announcer Joe Buck was quick to point out how both players came from the Browns, even stating that while in Cleveland ‘obviously (Mack and Gabriel) never tasted the postseason.’
The crew at Fox even showed a graphic which showed the record for the two players while they were with the Browns, which as you could tell wasn’t pretty.
With Atlanta heading to just their second Super Bowl in two weeks in Houston, there will be a lot more talk about Mack and Gabriel and probably some more Browns bashing about how the team used to have both players.
