Ex-Browns in the NFL

The Browns Highly Talented but Last Place Defense had no Spot for D'Qwell Jackson and his Pro Bowl trophies.  

One reason why the Browns seem to have no talent is that their best players are playing for other teams.  You would be amazed to know that from the league's worst defense, there are ten (10) guys starting for other teams.  How is that even possible?  Safety Mike Adams, safety T. J. Ward, LB D'Qwell Jackson, special teams ace Johnson Bademosi,  were all picked for recent Pro Bowls.  No team can lose that kind of talent and replace it with late round draft choices.  What really hurts is that for the most part these guys were either cut outright, or the Browns made minimal attempts to sign them.  

On offense it's not quite so bad.  Only six ex-Browns are starters on other teams, and only two have been to a recent Pro Bowl.     In all, about 16 ex-Browns are starting for other teams.  An amazing nine backup quarterbacks are ex-Browns.
