Tashaun Gipson is one of the many former Browns players who have found success outside Cleveland. The safety signed a five-year, $35 million deal with the Jaguars before the 2016 season and now Gipson is an important cog in Jacksonville's top-rated defense. On Sunday, he and his Jaguars teammates will travel to Cleveland to face his former team. And Gipson is really looking forward to it. "I truly hope that we hang 40 on them," Gipson told the "Freddie and Fitz" radio show on Monday, via ESPN.com. "Their offense probably shouldn't score against our defense and I'm excited. That's the true thing." Gipson ain't wrong. The Jaguars have the top-rated defense, according to Football Outsiders' metrics, and that includes the No. 1 pass defense. The Browns, meanwhile, are where they usually are this time of year: the league's worst team that features the league's worst offense. Currently 0-9, the Browns are 1-24 since Hue Jackson was hired before the 2016 season -- which coincides when Gipson left Cleveland for Jacksonville. "It's personal, but yet at the end of the day you're still blessed," Gipson continued, ... "knowing that I'm in a situation right now where I don't look back about it. I don't look back with any regrets. I'm extremely excited with where I'm at right now, but you know it's definitely going to be personal man, for sure." Still, Gipson sympathizes with the players he once called teammates and suggests the circular firing squad that passes for coaches and the front office bears much of the blame.
