Don’t sleep on Cleveland Browns GM John Dorsey’s new sweatshirt

Dorsey means all business in Cleveland

Ex-Kansas City Chiefs general manager John Dorsey is all business with the Cleveland Browns, a source tells me.

And the source is that brand new sweatshirt.

I give you exhibit A:

Dorsey spent 2000 to 2011 as the Packers’ director of college scouting, moving to their director of football operations position in 2012. And it was during that time we first caught a glimpse of the sweatshirt.

Look. Dorsey has never wanted to choose what to wear. He’s never felt the need to be flashy. He’s always kept it simple and to the point, and that’s what we got in the Green Bay Packers original.

*Just look at Dez Bryant standing there in 2010, ready to be drafted by this friendly man in the polyester.

The sweatshirt worked for Dorsey, so he took it to Kansas City:

2014 NFL Combine

When the Chiefs hired Andy Reid in 2013, Dorsey came along with him as the team’s general manager, and what we got in his attire was the same, exact style of the sweatshirt, and it eventually became a running joke in Kansas City.

Dorsey wore it with (Arrowhead) pride until his firing this past summer.

THEN, we got this on Tuesday of this week from the Senior Bowl, also known as the first day of school with your hot, new girlfriend:

OK, stop.

Do you see the font on this thing?

Forget the classic type and any kind of arch on the city line. No, we’re going straight-line, full-impact bold. The secondary-color trim? Not in Cleveland. Just full orange, baby.

And yeah, I know there will be some of you that will tell me it doesn’t mean anything.

But I’ll argue with you to the death that when a guy changes his font style after 17 years of said font style, he means business.

And if you don’t believe me now, you will once he steals your quarterback.

“Who will be the Browns opening day QB next year?” a MMQB reader asked.

I rest my case.

*In case you’re wondering, the Packers took tackle Bryan Bulaga with the 23rd overall pick in 2010. Bryant was selected by the Dallas Cowboys 24th.
