The one about Browns RB Dion Lewis being compared to Darren Sproles
Trent Richardson will be the Browns' bell-cow back this year, but perhaps there is a Pro Bowl-caliber player behind him on the depth chart? Here's Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner on backup running back Dion Lewis .
"Obviously my history, I've been involved with a guy of his stature," Turner said. "He's made a lot of plays and if you look out here it on the practice field it looks like Darren (Sproles). Now you've got to transfer that into games."
That's fun, but pardon me if I scoff at Turner's words. Lewis didn't prove much to Andy Reid, a very good offensive mind, in his first two seasons in the league. He might be leading Montario Hardesty in the camp battle to be Richardson's backup. But the Sproles talk is silly.
