NFL Draft: Browns' Jason Pinkston Embraces Cleveland

Some Pitt fans may be saddened to learn that former offensive lineman and Browns draftee Jason Pinkston is embracing his new hometown.

The day he was drafted, Pinkston, a Pittsburgh native, told local reporters he was going to donate his Steelers apparel to Goodwill. Since then, he has used Twitter to announce his new allegiance to the Indians and his lack of support for the Miami Heat. He even claimed to have a dream about meeting his future wife in Cleveland.

As a fifth-round pick, it's possible Pinkston won't be able to get too comfortable. But he should vie for playing time at right guard. Pitt fans will probably be rooting for him, even though they must feel jilted right now.
