Prospect Gets Meeting With Browns GM After Standing Outside Team Facility For 3 Days

Monte Gaddis Browns Tryout

The Cleveland Browns are so bad that you’d think any dude off the street with some experience playing football would have a chance to make the team.

Well, we may be on the verge of finding out if that’s true, as Browns GM Ray Farmer has offered undrafted prospect Monte Gaddis an interview after he stood outside the team’s facility for three days with a sign around his neck that read, “Starving For My First Shot,” among other things.

Gaddis was a walk-on at the University of Maryland and later transferred to Towson University, where he earned All-American honors in 2012 and was a defensive MVP in 2013.

According to reports, Gaddis has been walking up and down the sidewalk outside the Cleveland Browns facility for the past three days. And that persistence finally paid off when Farmer came out of the building to have a private chat with the Cleveland native.

According to Gaddis, Farmer gave him his email address and told him to send along a highlight tape as well as a website address if he had one. He also asked Gaddis to bring some full game footage to the facility tomorrow.

I guess it won’t be long before we find out whether or not this story has a happy ending. We’ll keep you posted.
