Hey folks, Brooksie checking in from Browns country to congratulate you on your newest WR Parris Campbell. I have been watching football for 50 years now - and I can say Parris is a true game changer.

My kids attended SVSM HS. (yes LeBron's school too). They have long since graduated, but I still see 3 or 4 of their games a year. I also know that high school is LIGHT YEARS from an NFL game. But there are three plays that stick out that define his greatest weapon - his speed.

State semifinal game vs Dover HS - Parris takes the hand off in his own end zone, off tackle, clears the LOS at his own 5, and he is gone. Last kid with a shot was at own 40 - no contest. 95 Yd TD.

Regular season in a game at Dayton Welcome Stadium. Irish take over after a punt is downed on their 2 yard line. First play - toss sweep. I remember seeing the blocking develop and screaming at my buddy (while Parris is still in our own end zone "He's gone! He's gone!" And he was. 98 yards in 4.4 nanoseconds......

State title game in 2013. Because their college team is ineligible for postseason play, some dude named Urban Meyer shows up. Parris takes a fly sweep to the house on the Irish's 3rd snap of the game to the house. Urban offers him a full ride on the spot.

His game grew exponentially with Haskins as his QB last year. You will love this kid. You will never be too far out to score with Parris on the field.

Awesome insight, thanks man. Frank Reich was gushing over him. Speed Athleticism and Character are the traits they loved about him. Hilton is going to be 30 this year so the Colts really need someone to take attention off him. I'm excited to see what this offense looks like with Campbell and Deon Cain

Also the Sam Darnold trade is officially closed 

Colts got Quenton Nelson, Braden Smith, Kemoko Turay, Jordan Wilkins and Rock Ya-Sin
