Cleveland Browns Posters
NFL Posters – Cleveland Browns
For hardcore members of the Dawg Pound, the Cleveland Browns posters have never went out of style. Even when the franchise didn’t exist for a few years in the 90s, loyal fans were still buying posters from places like AllPosters.com and hanging them on their walls. Now that the Browns are back, there items are more popular than ever.
Brady Quinn Posters
After playing for the University of Notre Dame, quarterback Brady Quinn was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Brown. So far, he’s had to wait behind an emerging Derek Anderson, but most in the organization still view him as a future superstar.
Brady Quinn posters will no doubt become more common in the future, but there are still a number of options available. As you might have guessed, every poster I’ve seen shows Quinn dropping back and looking to pass.
Cleveland Posters – Cleveland Browns Stadium
Located on the former site of Cleveland Municipal Stadium, this facility first opened in 1999. The city of Cleveland chose not to sell the naming rights, but each of the stadium’s four entrances are named after Cleveland businesses. The Browns have played there since it opened.
For fans of the new stadium, there’s an aerial photo of Cleveland Browns Stadium. For fans of the old days, there’s also a nostalgic art print which shows Cleveland Municipal Stadium before it was demolished.
Cleveland Browns Posters – Kellen Winslow Jr.
Kellen Winslow Jr. is the son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow. After being drafted in the first round of the 2004 draft, Winslow broke his leg in the second game of the season. He also missed the 2005 season following a motorcycle accident which required extensive surgery. Since then, he has emerged as a reliable weapon for the Browns’ offense.
There are some good action posters of Kellen Winslow II, but my favorite has to be Winslow at the 2004 NFL Draft. With the league’s giant draft logo hanging in the background, Winslow proudly holds up a Browns’ jersey.
Braylon Edwards Posters
Braylon Edwards was selected in the first round of the 2005 draft, but a knee injury cut his rookie season short. In 2007, Edwards had a breakout season at wide receiver and made the Pro Bowl for the first time in his career. His 16 touchdowns were second only to Randy Moss’ record-setting 23.
A lot of wide receiver posters never show them catching the ball, but that’s not the case with Braylon Edwards’ posters. A number are available which capture the exact moment that he grabs the football out of the air. Less exciting options include Edwards running after the catch.
More Browns Posters – Kamerion Wimbley
Wimbley’s NFL career began in 2006, and he amassed 11 sacks as a converted linebacker (he played defensive end in college). In 2007, he led the team’s defensive unit in sacks. He played his college ball at Florida State.
Kamerion Wimbley’s posters are nothing exciting. They each depict him moving down the field and looking for someone to tackle, although we never see any actual contact. While I’m sure his mother is quite proud of them, these photos are nothing to write home about.
Jamal Lewis Browns Posters
Drafted by the Ravens in 2000, Lewis overtook Priest Holmes as the starting runner and rushed for over 1,000 yards on the way to a Super Bowl win. In 2003, he rushed for over 2,000 yards, becoming one of the few runners to ever reach this milestone. In 2007, he signed with the Browns and proceeded to rush for 1,304 yards and nine touchdowns.
I found three Jamal Lewis posters over at AllPosters.com. The first two were the usual running-around-with-the-ball shots that all running backs seem to get stuck with. The third, however, has a bit more personality. In it, Lewis is running the ball (naturally), but we’re closer to the action than normal. As Lewis prepares to ward off defenders with a stiff arm, we get an excellent view of his intense eyes scanning the field.
Cleveland Browns Posters – Derek Anderson
Originally drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round, Anderson was waived by the team and picked up by the Browns. In 2007, he took over for a struggling Charlie Frye and threw for 328 yards and five touchdowns in the second game of the season. After leading the team to a 10-6 record, Anderson was selected to his first Pro Bowl.
It‘s obvious that Anderson‘s recent success was unexpected, as only one poster is offered for the Pro Bowl quarterback. In it, he’s sharing the poster with Braylon Edwards and Kellen Winslow II. Somehow, I have a feeling that a bit more variety will be available in 2009.
