What’s the Matter Rookie, Can’t Take a Joke?


water-dumped-on-head-above-doorCleveland Browns rookie cornerback Coye Francies threw an errant punch and a bucket of ice in the locker room after practice on Friday when he was the victim of a prank. After being doused in water, a soaking wet Francis charged into the locker room flinging ice on fellow DBs Brandon McDonald and Mike Adams before trying to punch safety Abram Elam, who blocked the pugilistic attempts. Nose tackle Shaun Rogers stepped in and grabbed Francis by the back of the shirt, telling him “Calm down, man,” and then escorted him out of the room.

“Welcome to the Browns locker room!” wide receiver Braylon Edwards yelled as the rest of the team came over to check out

the hubbub.

Eventually Francies returned to the his own locker, still clearly agitated although his teammates brushed the incident aside.

“It was just guys having fun,” McDonald said, whisking the ice into a dust pan with a broom. “I was the first one he saw. He got a little aggressive, it’s no big deal. We handled it. It’s over now and we’re going to worry about the Ravens. We don’t want to have any misconceptions in the locker room.”

After some time had passed even Francies was able to calm down about the incident: “It’s all just fun and games,” he said. “We were just playing around.”
