So it puts me in kind of a funky situation where
Status: OFFLINE


Jabrill Peppers has started playing self-defense.The Browns defensive back said Thursday ó his 23rd birthday ó that he has stopped going out in public by himself in downtown Cleveland following hostile confrontations with fans unhappy with the way he's played.Peppers said he has endured verbal taunts and some joking in the past Denzel Ward Jersey White , but that lately some of the encounters have nearly gotten physical."When you walk up on another man, that's a hostile situation," Peppers said following practice. "For me, I have way more to lose than the average guy. So it puts me in kind of a funky situation where I can't even go get daily toiletries or things without having to worry about something like that."Peppers did not give any specifics about the altercations. However, on Wednesday he told the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram about an "aggressive" exchange in a drug store where "my boy had to pull me away one time."Peppers said he has been confronted numerous times and believes some of the grief he's taken is because he went to Michigan and plays in a city where rival Ohio State fans are abundant."Sometimes it's more so jokes, but as of late it's kind of a little bit more different situation than just verbal Baker Mayfield Jersey White ," he said.Peppers also tried to clarify comments that Browns fans are "very, very wishy-washy." The former Michigan star said he wasn't referring to die-hard Browns fans, but rather to an overall environment that exits in Cleveland ó and other cities."This is the NFL and that's how it is," he said. "Love you when you're doing good, and they don't when you're not. We know we have to play better. Obviously, I wasn't talking about the fans as a whole ó just more so the environment of an NFL franchise. We understand the city of Cleveland loves their Browns and wants to see us get back to how it's supposed to be."But that's just the NFL. They love you when you're doing good or not so much when you're not."Peppers said he has taken to covering up when he's out shopping Denzel Ward Jersey , but that hasn't helped much."I don't want to walk into a store with a hoodie on, that's just bad manners," he said.The No. 25 overall pick in the 2017 draft, Peppers has not lived up to expectations and he knows that's at the root of the backlash he's getting from fans. He's been moved around in Cleveland's defense as the Browns try to figure out how to best use the 5-foot-11, 215-pounder who was one of the nation's most impactful players in college but hasn't had close to the same success as a pro.Peppers has also struggled returning punts and kicks, and his lack of production has drawn the wrath of some Cleveland fans. He understands it's up to him to change the narrative.But despite the recent negative experiences Jarvis Landry Jersey , he has not soured on playing in Cleveland."I love the Browns. I love the city," he said "I love how passionate the fans are and part of what I get is my fault."I'm not playing up to my potential and they see that as well, so you can't fault the people for feeling how they feel. You just gotta take it with a grain of salt and do what you gotta do to get better." As the Raiders play their first preseason game with receiver Antonio Brown on the roster ó and as Brown is nowhere to be seen or even mentioned by the Raidersí employees broadcasting the game on TV ó multiple other NFL teams are likely smiling tonight.First, and most obviously, the Steelers. While it appeared that the Steelers got the short end of a deal that sent only a third-round and fifth-round pick to Pittsburgh for one of the best receivers in football, itís currently looking like the Steelers fleeced the Raiders.Second Myles Garrett Jersey , the Bills were ready to trade for Brown but Brown wanted nothing to do with the Bills. And the Bills should be popping the bubbly over the fact that Brown isnít their problem right now.Third, while a trade between the Steelers and the Browns wasnít likely, Cleveland has to be feeling pretty good about getting Odell Beckham Jr. instead of Brown. Yes, it required more trade compensation, but the Browns got OBJís contract as is with not adjustment (yet), and Beckham has been a model citizen in comparison to Brown Jim Brown Jersey White , who has continued a pattern of erratic and unpredictable behavior that the Steelers quietly tolerated for years ó and that may be approaching critical mass if Brown is serious about not playing if he canít wear a helmet that canít be certified for use due to the fact that itís more than 10 years old.Fourh, any other team that even pondered the possibility of trading for Brown has to be counting their blessings for not making a serious run at the player. While the current ugliness may pass and Brown may become as good as he ever was, itís currently looking like the Raiders have made in trading for Brown the mirror image of the mistake they made in trading Khalil Mack last year.
