Quick note to all you NFL hopefuls out there: The Cleveland Browns are not holding open tryouts this week -- and likely won't be holding them ever.

Sure, the Browns were bad last year, but that doesn't mean you can just walk up to their practice facilities and try out for the team. Although that's what one guy attempted to do on Tuesday, according to the Associated Press.

Apparently the guy thought showing up at an NFL team's facility unannounced, was the best way to get a tryout. The man, a former high school player from New Mexico, made it onto the team's practice field before being spotted and immediately escorted out of the facility.

The man didn't get to try out, but it seems he was prepared to. According to, the guy was carrying a 'very large backpack' that might have contained his own football equipment.

When a Browns staffer eventually talked to the man, the man explained that he came to Cleveland specifically to try out for the Browns.

The tryout didn't happen, so it looks like we're not going to get that 'Invincible' sequel we had all been hoping for.
