On Thursday, former Chicago Bears star Charles “Peanut” Tillman confirmed how bad the Browns were by confirming he had an awkward encounter with the Cleveland staff one year earlier.
“Yeah they did something similar to me at the combine back in 2003,” Tillman said. “The HC, DC and OC stood and watched the interviewer ask ridiculous questions and yell. SMH.”
Way back in 2003, the Browns were led by owner Randy Lerner, president Carmen Policy and head coach/general manager Butch Davis. The offensive coordinator at the time was Bruce Arians and their defensive coordinator was Dave Campo.
Watson, who played for the Browns from 2010-2012, further added he loved his time with the organization then.
“Totally different front office in 2004 and 2010. Should have made that clear,” he tweeted. “And this isn’t an indictment on the city or the club while I was there. Loved our time in Believeland.”
