NFL safety and Cleveland Browns fan Tyvis Powell said his friend and former teammate Parris Campbell is open to coming to the Browns.
Tyvis Powell Said Parris Campbell Still Has That ‘Blazing’ Speed
Tyvis Powell and Parris Campbell played together at Ohio State and Campbell actually grew up in Akron, Ohio. Powell told the Dawgs Table podcast that they just spent a week together and Campbell is open to coming to the Browns because he’d love to return to Ohio. Campbell is currently one of the starting wide receivers for the Indianapolis Colts.

Powell Also Mentioned Marquise Goodwin & Weighed in on Mecole Hardman
In the same breath as talking about Campbell, Powell brought up another former teammate of his, this time one from his year with the San Francisco 49ers — Marquise Goodwin of the Seattle Seahawks, though Powell did acknowledge that the 32-year-old receiver is a little older than 25-year-old Campbell.
“[Goodwin is] a little up there in the age now, but he came off one of his most productive seasons in Seattle with Geno Smith and he looked really good,” said Powell. “An Olympian guy …read more
