Josh McCown says Cleveland Browns would happily take Ray Rice

The Cleveland Browns haven't had the greatest of times as of late.

Browns Struggling 

The Browns two first round draft picks from 2014 in Johnny Manziel and Justin Gilbert ended up both being big failures, in very different ways, while star wide receiver Josh Gordon went and got himself suspended for the second season in a row.

The running back corps doesn't look too great either, managing just 45 yards as a whole in their pre-season opener, and rumors have been swirling about bringing in Ray Rice.

Rice is Nice

Josh McCown has now come out and said that he and the rest of his Browns teammates would be completely behind that move, if it's what head coach Mike Pettine decides to do.

“He would be received just like anyone else if he could help us,” McCown said, according to ProFootballTalk. “We need to be about second chances and forgiveness, and if the organization does their research and they feel like Ray has moved past that."

"And there’s some people in our organization that have obviously been around Ray, you know on other teams and such. Then I think we welcome him if he can help us.”

If the Browns honestly assess their 2014 film, they'll establish Isaiah Crowell as their lead rusher. Unfortunately, that seems like a big if. The cluelessness of the Cleveland staff affected the entire roster last year, and the backfield was no exception.

First, the Browns opted for a punchless Ben Tate, then fluctuated between Crowell and Terrance West seemingly at random. Crowell will likely win out, but who knows what Pettine will decide to do. If he doesn't go big in the remaining pre-season games, we may see the resurgence of Ray Rice.
