It is Wednesday, February 16, 2022, and Cleveland Browns fans are in the throes of a long offseason with no events on tap for a couple of weeks until the 2022 NFL Combine.
Here are Wednesday’s Browns Nation news and notes offseason style.
1. Nick Chubb Joins Effort To Change NFL Fields To Real Grass
Nick Chubb has embraced the cause of reinstituting real grass in NFL stadiums.
Right now 16 of the 32 stadiums do not have grass.
90% of NFL players believe artificial turf will shorten their careers because of how the surface contributes to lower body and knee injuries.
Chubb takes this issue personally after he suffered the sprained MCL during the 2020 season.
Nearly 10,000 people have signed the Change.org petition.
90% of NFL Players prefer real grass, including me! In 2020 I sprained my MCL on artificial turf. #FlipTheTurf to real grass with @PenningtonLawn and sign the petition: https://t.co/Rj6Z8gzOFu #PenningtonPartner pic.twitter.com/2bV3GVSzQo
