One of the arresting officers was stunned that Washington pulled out a gun, telling him: “You don’t know how lucky you are man. That was close, buddy. That was really close.”
Washington explained that he was trying to put the gun away because he had it in his lap.
“Ninety-nine percent of the time, what would have happened tonight?” an officer asked.
“I would have got shot. I know it. I understand,” Washington replied.
“I’m not trying to shoot somebody out here,” the officer said.
“I’m not trying to get shot,” Washington answered.
- Mary Kay Cabot writes that it’s possible Cody Kessler could open the season as the Browns’ starting quarterback, but she has her doubts, considering that HC Hue Jackson has been very clear that he prefers a quarterback with a big arm, height, mobility and quick decision-making.
- Working against Kessler is the fact that he’s under 6-2 and isn’t a great deep-ball passer.
- Instead, Cabot mentions that it’s going to be difficult for the Browns to keep second-round pick DeShone Kizer on the bench for long.
- Cabot expects the Browns to employ a lot of multiple-tight-end sets this year, especially now that TE Seth DeValve has really stood out in offseason workouts and they used a first-round pick on David Njoku.
