'Sorry but Ohio y’all gotta let me enjoy this one': Here's one happy Cleveland Browns receiver

·2 min read

Apparently receivers can be happy while playing for the Cleveland Browns. At least they can on rare Saturdays.

Donovan Peoples-Jones has been a bright spot for the Cleveland Browns during his second season on the shores of Lake Erie.

The 22-year-old has just 16 catches, but for 330 yards, giving him an average of 20.6 yards per catch and his been more involved in recent weeks after the Browns moved on from Odell Beckham Jr.

And while he may be a promising young player for the Browns, Peoples-Jones is probably better known for his college career at this point.

That came at Michigan, where Peoples-Jones was a Wolverine receiver for three seasons from 2017-2019. People-Jones had 103 receptions before entering the NFL Draft, where he was the 187th pick by the Browns.

But he never beat Ohio State while in Ann Arbor. The Detroit native had only seen Michigan beat Ohio State three times, and two of those came before his third birthday.

All that changed when Ohio State lost to Michigan 42-27 on Saturday.

Needless to say, the Browns wideout was asking his fans in Ohio to give him a break as he celebrated.
