Droughns Rewards Blockers With Diamond Watches
Browns' Back Gives Back to Those Who Got Him Past 1,000 Yards

BEREA, Ohio (Dec. 13) - Reuben Droughns figured it was time to reward his Cleveland Browns teammates for making him a 1,000-yard rusher.

He bought 13 diamond-encrusted wrist watches for his blockers, who helped him become the first Cleveland player since 1985 to surpass 1,000 yards.

Droughns gave watches to the offensive linemen - starters and backups - and fullbacks and tight ends.

"I got some very good champagne for the guys back in Denver when I went over 1,000 yards last year," said Droughns, who rushed for 1,240 for the Broncos. "But this was a lot different situation here because a 1,000-yard season hadn't been done in a while."

Before Droughns eclipsed the barrier on Dec. 4, the Browns were the only team in the league not to have a 1,000-yard rusher in the past 20 years. In 1985, both Earnest Byner and Kevin Mack did it for Cleveland.

Droughns said he picked out the watches himself.

"I hope the guys like them. I paid a pretty penny for them," he said without divulging their cost.

Droughns is fifth in the AFC in rushing with 1,103 yards on 262 carries.


Hopefully the Browns' front office will take as good of care of Reuben as he did his lineman. I don't see how they could let Droughns walk next year unless his asking price is unbelievely high.

Big props to Reuben and the o-line. He proved all doubters wrong and rewarded us Browns fans with a solid running game!

btw, I think he is under contract for one more year for like 800K, but ya, they need to lock this guy up for a long term deal ;-D
