Browns called the wrong draft pick on Saturday

When a team drafts a player, they call him and let him know. You know this, because you've been watching ESPN and the NFL Network ruin the surprise of draft choices for a good five-plus years.

Teams also call players afterwards to get some biographical information about them. This happened to Cameron Jordan, when the Browns rang him up on Saturday.

Unfortunately, as Peter King of Sports Illustrated recounted yesterday, the Browns didn't draft Cameron Jordan ... they drafted Jordan Cameron:
"Hi," said the voice on the other end. "Jordan? This is the Cleveland Browns ... '' The call was for some biographical information.

"Uh, yeah, this is Cameron Jordan,'' he said. "But the Saints already picked me."

There was an awkward pause, and Cameron Jordan said: "I think you mean Jordan Cameron, you're looking for Jordan Cameron. That's not me."
So awesome. And awkward. 

Now, I could be a cynical jerk and point out that this is a perfect microcosm for the Browns organization, and indicates an obvious problem that circulates through the water in Cleveland.

But that seems a bit over-the-top, especially after they had such a stout draft. They did. I don't care how good Julio Jones is.

And besides, outside of the Peyton Hillis Madden 12 cover, Cleveland's had a rough run, so let's cut them a break and just point and chuckle a little bit.

Well somebody some where messed up.  I just looked at both teams pages and they say the opposite of what was written in this article.  So I dont know if this writer is blowing smoke or if changes where made and the teams switched players.
