Browns DC Ray Horton said he is not worried about his job security after reports surfaced in recent weeks claiming he is on the hot seat.
“I don’t live that way, I don’t want my kids to live that way and I don’t want my players to live that way,” said Horton, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I would think, ‘man, what an awful life if you have to worry all the time about stuff.’ You do the best job you can in life with what you have, meaning personally. Do I worry that way? I think you guys know me very well. I try to be very honest and very fair. I don’t live that way.”
