“It wasn’t a diss. If you know the whole story, it was a joke that me and had last year, because I had won the Davey O’Brien the year before, too. The Davey O’Brien (staff) are huge Cowboys fans, and they wanted me to joke around and get their crowd excited and get a good laugh,” Watson said. “The base behind the story was, at the time, the Cowboys were looking for a quarterback and Tony Romo was hurt. I told them, ‘Hey, if I was able to come back (and win) the Davey O’Brien Award with Chinese sports jerseys again next year … then you have to draft me. That was the joke.

“So (this year) the Davey O’Brien people wanted me to bring that back up and say ‘Hey, I kept my promise, now you’ve got to keep yours and draft me. It was an insider joke, somebody filmed it and put it on social media and made it bigger than what it was. It wasn’t a diss to any team or franchise. I would be happy to go anywhere.”

Nike Browns #6 Cody Kessler Orange Alternate Men's Stitched NFL New Elite JerseyNFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the team has placed a second-round tender on the fourth-year pro worth $2.81 million, per sources informed of the situation. Tender aside, the sides continue to work on a long-term deal that would replace the tender entirely.

Cleveland and Crowell have been negotiating a new contract for months before hitting a “stalemate” in January, according to of Rapoport.

The undrafted Crowell finished the year as the league’s 15th-leading rusher, pounding out 952 yards at a healthy 4.8 yards per carry. His eight totes of 20-plus yards ranked fifth in the NFL, but the 24-year-old trailed off down the stretch before exploding for 152 yards in Week 17.

With 19 touchdowns over three seasons, Crowell has a nose for the end zone, but any new deal shouldn’t preclude the Browns from looking for help in the draft. While passing-down option has his moments, Cleveland needs help at every single skill position on the field.

Colquitt joined the Browns in 2016 on a single-year deal following his release from the and after the Browns traded former punter Andy Lee to Carolina. He set a team single-season record with a net average of 40.31 yards and he made 22 punts inside the 20-yard line.

“I am thrilled,” Colquitt said per the team’s official site. “My family couldn’t be happier. We love the organization and the fans. From Jimmy and Dee Haslam to Sashi (Brown) to the coaching staff with Hue (Jackson) and of course Tabes (Chris Tabor), this is a great place to work. The Browns are a class act. I want to thank the organization for giving me this opportunity.”
